"Why does that asian guy's hair change color in every shot?"
Dammit, Ben, I want a check for the $3.30 I spent on this!Being the adoring, wonderful, supportive fan that I am, I convinced my roomate, "c'mon, can we rent this? Ben is in it! He has stupid hair, but it can't be that bad!"
But oh. Oh no.
However, let's be positive. You do get to see an Oscar-winning ass. And oh my God, what an ass.
And, we learn that apparently Matt damn didn't have anything better to do than hang around the set waiting for a walk-on :) wearing a lovely pink shirt, I might add.
But besides that this movie is a silly, poorly constructed, confusing rambling, aimless tale of, I guess, I think... moving on? Was that the message? Ben is (HAHA) an art major, misunderstood on so many levels by the adults around him. Poor Ben. He's obsessed with his girlfriend, who is the most objectified female character I have ever witnessed. All we need to know is that Ben is in love with her. We have no insight into why. We're not supposed to. We see her tits, isn't that enough?
The other collection of characters is poorly defined and why should I care anyways? The sub-plots are predictable and, well, stupid. They only add to the "slacker" feel of the movie, and actually most of my deduction that this movie is about growing up and moving on is based on them. Ben's artsy-farsty character doesn't seem to move on to me, he just kind of leaves.
Oh, and smashes a toaster first (What? Why? Freak.)
However, i really should stress that you get a good long shot of ben's rump. it's really the height of the movie, and if you're a perv like me, makes it worth it.Ben's ass is worth 5 sporks, but the film only cuts 1 and a half to 2
