Editorial Reviews

Mr. Woodcock (DVD)

What if your mother were about to marry your worst nightmare, the man who tormented your youth, who still haunts your nightmares--Mr. Woodcock? John Farley (Seann William Scott--The Dukes of Hazzard), author of a best-selling book about letting go of the past, violates his own advice when he returns home to accept his community's highest honor. There, he learns, to his horror, that his widowed mother (Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon - Shall We Dance?) is engaged to his old high school gym teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton--Bad Santa), whose sadistic acts plagued John's youth. Now, abetted by his nerdy old pal Nedderman (Ethan Suplee--The Butterfly Effect), John will stop at nothing to derail the relationship.

I still remember the meanest teacher I've ever had back in High School. That short guy always punished the students for little or no reason at all and unfortunately we just had to deal with it (doing pushups with your knuckles is not fun at all). I'm sure that most of us can relate to these unpleasant--and sometimes even painful--memories from childhood. Mr. Woodcock is a movie about that teacher that you loved to hate. Not only made poor John miserable as a boy, but he is coming back to date his mom. This is without a doubt, one of the funniest films of the year (unfortunately not many critics believe this statement). It follows the Meet the Parents formula with situational jokes and great performances by Billy Bob Thornton and Seann William Scott who together are dynamite and perfectly suitable for their roles.

Brief Intro Story:
John Farley (Seann William Scott) is a junior high kid who is constantly suffering humiliation by his gym teacher Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton). Little John is not the only victim here, but all of the kids from his class suffer by the same demeaning punishment.

Thirteen years has passed and now Farley is a successful writer who has a best selling book called "Letting Go, How to get past your past"--inspired by his childhood memories. As he is traveling around the country promoting his book with his agent Maggie Hoffman (Amy Poehler), he finds out that he just got an award from his hometown. It will be a great opportunity to say hello to his dear mother Beverly (Susan Sarandon) who lives alone--unfortunately John lost his father years ago.

As he gets home to say hello to his mom, he finds found that she is dating no other than his number one nemesis Mr. Woodcock.

The other day I watched "Good Luck Chuck" and gave it two stars, but now that I have seen "Mr. Woodcock" I feel like I should go back and give the other movie three stars so it will not be on the same rating plateau as this absymal film. I know, I know: I could accomplish the same goal by giving "Mr. Woodcock" one star, but I reserve one star ratings for films where I think the people who made it should be hunted down and done physical violence (and, yes, I have found a couple of those), and with this film I just want to ask the cast what the hell were they thinking when they agreed to make this 2006 "comedy." The one thing I can say in defense of this film is that if you are getting sick and tired of the raunchy comedies that having been dominating the cinematic landscape from "There's Something About Mary" to "Superbad" (you can usually tell them because they are inevitably released as "Unrated" editions on DVD), then rest assured that "Mr. Woodcock" fails to fall into that company.

The premise seems workable enough. John Farley (Seann William Scott) returns in triumph as a successful self-help author to his hometown in Nebraska only to discover that Jasper Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton), the gymn teacher who tormented him unmercifully in school, is now dating his mom, Beverly (Susan Sarandon). To be clear, Beverly is John's mother and not Jasper's mother, although that twisted situation might have been an improvement.

Another good Billy Bob Thornton movie if you are a fan. He is again playing a gruff man, only this time he is a Physical Ed. Teacher in love with an x students mother, and guess what, the x student doesn't like him for all he was put through when he was in Woodcocks class. All and all another good Billy Bob movie though.

Everyone has probably met a "Mr. Woodcock" in their lives, and it will definitely affect the way you interpret or appreciate this film. Undoubtedly funny in its unyielding approach to raunchy slapstick humor, Mr. Woodcock keeps a consistently lighthearted tone even through to the unlikely conclusion, which helps prevent swaying mindsets and perspectives about these comical characters. Sacrificing meaningfulness for snappy, highly quotable one-liners, the winning combination of uncompassionate Billy Bob Thornton and sprightly Sean William Scott is plenty fulfilling.

John Farley (Seann William Scott) has become a fairly well-known author for his acclaimed self-help book and decides to visit his mother, Beverly (Susan Surandon), in his hometown when he learns they wish to present him with a highly prestigious award. Once there he is shocked to discover that his hellishly strict and abusively domineering old gym teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton) has been seeing his mother and they are engaged to be married. Desperate to break up this nightmarish union, John throws his own proverbs of "leaving your past behind" out the window and begins a maniacal campaign to dissuade his mother's interest in Woodcock.

Several recent comedies fall into a plot trap in which the major conflict is so catastrophic that a feasible escape is too unbelievable, and therefore the conclusion is beyond the boundaries of realistic comedy. While Mr. Woodcock's premise is far from fantastical, it does successfully conclude the film satisfactorily without stretching beyond the limits of what is imagined in a sarcastic slapstick film. Nearly everything in the film is done to evoke laughs, so the steady, unfaltering tone lacking seriousness that remains even until the conclusion, is welcome indeed.
