Mr. Woodcock (DVD)

Customer Reviews

Not too much is funny about this movie, but it had potential.
MortensOrchid
This is a pretty decent flick, most of the funny parts were on the previews but it is a great story, and presented very well.
Keith E. Keller
Sean William Scott, Billy Bob Thornton, and Susan Sarandon are capable, if not excellent, actors.

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.

I am so disappointed in this film. Thornton and Scott are in my opinion two of the most hilarious actors in the business today. I thought the movie had plenty potential but I can't remember laughing one time throughout. School of Scoundrels wasn't great but at least I remember a few funny scenes. I hope Billy Bob and Scott will team up again but hopefully in a better movie!

After surviving the wrath of his take-no-prisoners gym teacher Jasper Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton), John Farley (Seann William Scott) has grown from a fat nerd to a successful self-help book author. On his way home to accept a citizenship award at this year's Cornival, he finds out his mother Beverly (Susan Sarandon) is dating Woodcock for quite a while. With his forgotten past now back, he make whatever attempts he can to prove to his mother that Woodcock is no good for him.

You know, some less-than-successful comedies have at least some charm to make them at least get some worthy laughs. "Hot Rod", as silly as it was, benefited from Andy Samberg's determined performance that gave him a movie career once he breaks free from "Saturday Night Live"'s grasp. But when it comes to a film like "Mr. Woodcock", sometimes there isn't much hope. Adding insult to injury was the fact that it spent quite a while in hiding before being unleashed to unsuspecting moviegoers.

First off, there is a solid cast backed here: Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, Ethan Suplee, Amy Poehler, and Susan Sarandon. Honestly, a cast like this can bring any material to life. However, a cast like this needs a stable filmmaker to help guide them, and Craig Gillespie ("Lars and the Real Girl") is not the filmmaker for the job.

I must disgress that leads Thornton and Scott are very funny men, but unless the film is rated R or even funny, they can bomb right at the start. That's probably why Thornton's biting one-liners and drill sergeant delivery, which worked so well in "Bad Santa" and "Bad News Bears", feel like leftovers. Scott's an even bigger curiosity; is he trying to mimic his "Dude, Where's My Car" co-star Ashton Kutcher's move from a comic powerhouse to a nice guy in movies?

Format: DVD
This is definitely a treasure film for a college seminar in post-modernist interpretations of trash, to be taught in Mitchell, Nebraska, the corn capital of America. The first level of unintendedly honest expression is that "self-righteousness trounces sensitivity" every time." Thus it's patent that Mr. Woodcock is a political movie, a depiction of the Republican party thumping the liberals, or perhaps even a fictive replay of Dick! Cheney running over poor feel-good John Edwards in their televised debate. But wait! Another seminar star has a more appealingly far-fetched interpretation of the movie, as a foreshortened depiction of Muslim-Christian conflict, and we're invited to guess who mirrors whom. Then there's a Minnesota farmboy in the seminar who says the film was all about self-evasion by a script-writer who never earned his dad's respect by punching the ornery cuss back. Everyone in the seminar squeals 'oh, how pre-post-modern of you' but hey, there's no final interpretation, and that's final!

Billy Bob Thornton's performance is the only thing worth watching in this universally disclaimed flop. He's the spitting image of a coach I had in high school. I felt such an urge to put a fist through his face that my plasma screen jiggled like jello for its life. But wouldn't you know, the odious mediocrity Woodcock (the name is not without seminar value) gets "exonerated" in the end, his bullying justified! while the big-city-liberal mama's boy shows backbone at last by fighting the coach.
Maybe it is an allegory of America vs the World after all.
