That is exactly what this movie is. Its not an intellectual comedy. There is very little plot development, the characters don't evolve much, and its not filled with special effects or hard-core action scenes to make up the difference. So why in all the world did I give it four stars? I liked it because although not hilarious, it is funny. The characters are actually likeable. And the story wasn't really important to pay attention to. It is very mindless. You don't need to think while you watch this movie so its perfect for the work day from h-e-double hockey sticks. I would classify it more as a wind down movie. If you want a gut-wrenchingly funny comedy, this isn't the movie you're looking for. If you are just looking for something simple to watch, this is an excellent choice.

Let's get one thing straight -- I love Bill Engvall. His standup routines have left me and my friends rolling on the ground laughing, and I usually enjoy his work. I'm not as familiar with Larry the Cable Guy, as I haven't seen his shows and only know him as Mater from the "Cars" movies, and DJ Qualls is unfamiliar to me. Still, knowing that two famous comedians were in this movie made me expect some laughs -- maybe not a comedy masterpiece like "The Gods Must Be Crazy," but at least something funny and entertaining. With a name like "Delta Farce," after all, you don't expect high-quality cinema or an Oscar contender.

Sadly, this film failed to meet even my low expectations. The comedy feels forced, the story feels like a cheap ripoff of a superior comedy film, and neither Bill nor Larry have much in the way of acting skills.

Henpecked husband Bill, newly single and unemployed Larry, and creepy loser Everett (played by Bill, Larry, and DJ respectively) are members of the army who serve as "weekend warriors" -- spending one weekend a month hanging out and goofing off at their mostly-abandoned military outpost in Texas. All that changes when the hard-nosed Sergeant Kilgore comes in to take over the outpost, and after a brutal training regimen he hauls the luckless three aboard a plane bound for Iraq to serve a dangerous mission. One night of shenanigans later, and the trio find themselves in the desert of what they assume is Iraq... but turns out to be a remote Mexican village under siege by a vicious but eccentric crime lord. After a string of ridiculous misunderstandings, the trio learns the truth about where they've landed and must decide whether to turn tail and head home, or stay on and fight.

First, let's make one point clear: THIS
IS A STUPID MOVIE. God, is it stupid. But movies this stupid aren't often as funny as this one. I should have been more generous with the star rating, as I doubt they intended this to be taken seriously. If you take it too seriously, you will be bitterly disappointed. But any movie that features Larry The Cable Guy has a stamp on it.

But despite the names of Engvall and "Larry," the real show stealer is DJ Qualls. This guy's a mess, a real train-wreck. Yes, he's the stereotypical trigger-happy clueless American, but what people don't understand, is it is an intentional low-brow comedy which relies on insensitivity and stereotypes. Hence the hard-drinking Mexicans, the over-the-top "No Closet Can Hold Me" gay nephew of the town thug, the thug himself, and the beer-guzzling "redneck" Americans. Lighten up, people, it's just a silly movie.

And to all you politically correct busybodies, who still want to subject yourself to politically incorrect misery, that of the right to personal expression, go to "Features" and watch the interview with Lisa Lampanelli, the "Queen Of Mean." As Mencia often says, "...FREE SPEECH, BABY!!!" My god, get a sense of humor...

Also in the features, one sees how Danny Trejo got into acting. He is often typecast in bad guy roles, but as he says here, he has done time in every California penitentiary at one time or another. He lost nine years of his life to prison sentences. Coming to the point where he said to himself, "enough is enough," he finally did straighten himself out, and managed to break into films, as an extra at first. This isn't really relevant to the film, but "Bonus Features" never really are.

Back to the movie at hand.

:::Plot:::

Larry The Cable Guy, Bill L and what-his-name are 3 red neck week-end warriors. Meaning there in the army, but only on the weekends, where they bum around and have no military experience what-so-ever. There pretty much the lowest rank of ranks for the US Army.

They end up receiving orders to take on a mission in Iraq that the real army does not want to waste real troops on, so they have scraped the bottom of the barrel to send in these guys.

They meet there new drill sergeant who is the guy from Men At Work, almost playing the same character he did in that, and they find themselves on a plane heading to Iraq.

However these three dopes end up trying to sleep in a military vehicle on the plane, and the Sargent looks for them as the plane hit's bad weather and the pilot end's up lightning the load by dropping the vehicle and the 4 guy's out of the plane, not knowing they are in the vehicle sleeping.

When they awaken, they think they are in Iraq, but they are actually in Mexico. They then find themselves helping out a small Mexican village free itself from a group of Bandits and there leader, Carlos Santana. Not the singer, he's a banditto.

::Review::

Overall, this is very much a "seen it before" situation. Nothing is new, and to be honest, the comedy is not all there. It tries to swing to a more adult audience in some scenes, but for the most part, if they cut out the cuss words, this is a PG rated movie.

They really needed to find the balance of which direction to go with it. Should it have been a PG rated family comedy, or let Larry and Bill ad lib and make it a more adult scenario movie.

I think most people like myself expected a lot more of the Blue Collar dirty humor to it.
