Film #149: GENTLEMEN BRONCOS
1 out of 5 stars
Man, this was terrible (and coming from me that’s saying something). How and why Jared Hess’ films (NAPOLEON DYNAMITE & NACHO LIBRE) are popular is beyond me. A collection of moronic characters & vague motivations, this supposed send-up of the science fiction genre lacks any real insight as well as subtlety. What this is… is an absolute mess. The fact that Hess is able to draw quality actors like Sam Rockwell, Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) & Jennifer Coolidge to his projects is a mystery. I mean, it would take him having photos of them having sex with farm animals to warrant appearing in something this bad. Look, I didn’t really like NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and hated NACHO LIBRE, so I went into this with low expectations. What I got was worse than my imagination could’ve conjured. Avoid this one, kids. It’s shit-eous (if you’ve seen the film you’ll get that joke).
