Personally, I found this work hysterical (but I love goofy films like "Idle Hands," "Evil Dead," and "April Fool's Day"). Bill Paxton portrayal of a Jimmy Buffet "wannabe" is spot-on!! Moreover, it was refreshing to see Kevin Heffernan fearlessly tackle a character completely different from Farva: a spiritual masseur! Still, Jay Chandrasekhar steals the show not merely because he is one of the most handsome men in existence, but because his character of Putnam is RIDICULOUSLY FUNNY!!
If you don't "get" why "Shaun of the Dead" was so uproariously funny, this film may leave you confused and disappointed. Still, you should buy it for the Pac-Man scene alone!!! And, no, it's not "Super Troopers" . . . BUT WHAT IS??! It is just a silly film . . . exactly what it was intended to be!! On that level, it succeeds!!
Just give this film a chance:) (And buy "Beerfest" too!!)
The movie takes place on Pleasure Island resort in Costa Rica. Run by former former rock star Coconut Pete. He has young people come and have a good time, away from phones, and other technology, and wants his visitors to have a good time with the staffers. The staffers include Putnam, the tennis instructor, Sam, the captain of the "Fun Police" and Jenny, the aerobics instructor who has a reputation of sleeping with many of the staff members. Jenny becomes interested with the new masseur Lars whose has hands like magic, much to the dismay of Putnam. All of the staff members are ready to have fun for the week, untill one of the staff members is killed. More and more start to die, and they are killing people based on the lyrics of Coconut Pete's songs. Pete hired the security guard Hank to help them find out who is killing everybody, as they try and survive the week at the resort, all while suspecting everybody including each other.
"Club Dread" sounds like a spoof, but it is not.Read more ›
As HUGE fans of the horror genre themselves, the Broken Lizard guys make a homage/spoof of horror films, infused with Broken Lizard humor. Their plot doesn't always succeed with being frightening, but where it lacks in scare-tactics, it is filled with carefully planted tributes to their favorite horror films and plot-propelling humor.
For die-hard fans of Super Troopers, let me say that Club Dread is very much the same brand of comedy, complete with many of the extras they have come to adopt for all their films. However, where Super Troopers was more comedy sketches pieced together to form a story, Club Dread is a story with humor running through it. There are no individual comedy blurps (such as the scene of the "meow game" or the "shenanigans" scene) but rather just humors situations and lines spread evenly through the film.
Like any comedy, some jokes soar while other tank, but over all, the humor succeeds at keeping the film entertaining. Watch the movie to enjoy the 5 guys and the fact that they will sink to any level to get a laugh. Watch it with comentary the second time around for a whole new perspective and a whole new set of laughs.
