I went into this movie knowing that it was going to be a stupid comedy, think Happy Gilmore, Anger Management, etc. I found this movie not to be that funny, the main character “Missy” was just over the top ridiculous. I’m pretty sure that was the point but It was just too much for me. Most of the things she did weren’t that funny. I found the HR guy and Tim Morris (played by David Spade) to be pretty funny at times but not enough to save the movie.
This show is about a “me too” incident involving a co-host and the power between the executives and the producers/hosts. It kind of shows you how the advertisement and the owners of the networks dictates what happens on the media. The “me too” aspect of this series I felt was pretty well-rounded between the female and male point of views. The show was very dynamic with complex emotions on all sides. The acting was amazing and the story was interesting.
I initially watched this movie when it came out back in 2000. My memory was that it was hilarious and had an awesome soundtrack. I remember it being one of the better comedies that I had seen in a while. I even purchased the soundtrack but I can’t seem to locate the CD. Rewatching this, however, gives me a different opinion. The soundtrack is still great, it was funny and witty in places, but the movie itself didn’t live up to my prior expectation. If you have never seen the movie and like witty comedy, I would still recommend it.
This is a great continuation of one of my favorite zombie apocalypse series that I thought wrapped up with the 4th book Well Fed (Mountain Man 4) . I like the character writing, and the Gus and Collie pair seems to be nailing it. The book ended with me hoping for more. If you haven’t read the series, I would start with book 1 Mountain Man .
