The main character is not the most likable guy, but this partially dark comedy is quite funny at times.

An independent comedy that takes awhile to grow on the viewer since its main character is so off-putting, but it manages some good laughs even if it is obvious most of the time. Final Grade: C+

The face value price of this film is watching those unintelligent rednecks attempt an Eastern art and practice for the primary reason of either being in movies or being able to beat-up everyone. The deeper meaning and true evaluation is of the typical undisciplined American (overweight, primary adjectives are damn, like, and fuck within a constant Tyra Banks or Jerry Springer setting) and his or her inability to acheive any form of diligent discipline.

I’m so close to giving this movie a one star out of four. The only reason why I didn’t is that it managed to make me laugh out loud with its crude humor… when it doesn’t cross the line. And that’s my main problem with this picture: it crosses the line… multiple times without having some sort of heart that justifies why we should care for the characters. I know that this is supposed to be a dark comedy so being crude and mean comes with the territory (like in “Bad Santa” and “Fargo”). A main character that doesn’t have a filter can be loveable but if that character does not have a single redeeming quality, it just doesn’t work. I was insulted that this picture even dared the audience to sympathize with Danny McBride’s character. Not only is he a jerk (he …
