Becky and I went to see Billy Bob Thornton’s new movie Mr. Woodcock at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado on last week. The Yahoo website at Mr. Woodcock describes the movie as follows:
“John Farley, author of a best-selling self-help book about letting go of the past, violates his own advice when he returns to his small hometown to receive the community’s highest honor. While there, John learns, to his horror, that his widowed mother, Beverly, is engaged to be married to none other than Mr. Woodcock, the gym teacher whose sadistic exploits were the bane of John’s youth. Abetted by…”
Becky and I went into Mr. Woodcock with really low expectations, especially after the last few Billy Bob Thornton movies and the rave reviews of the lame comedy Superbad. From the opening scene Mr. Woodcock will have you laughing. Becky and I are not big fans of Billy Bob Thornton, but his character Mr. Woodcock was hysterical.
I’m surprised to see how many people and critics gave this film poor reviews when it was such a funny film. It’s on about the same level as a movie like Meet The Parents where the settings are ridiculous, but they are really funny. If you’re looking for a bunch of laughs and a good time, this is a movie to see. The entire theater was cracking up on this flick and the only thing that was surprising to us was that it wasn’t rated R.
There is no way that this movie should be rated PG-13 because it’s really over the top with the language and sexual situations. Do not take your kids to this film since it’s definitely adult humor. Be forewarned that it is stupid like “American Pie” or some of the other successful comedies of the past, but it’s pretty darn goofy.
John – *** Worth The Trip
