If you like Mike Judge's other stuff (Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill) you STILL might hate this movie.Yeah i saw Mike Judge's "Milton" shorts back on saturday night live and Liquid Television. If you had asked me "dave, would this be a good cartoon to turn into a movie?" i would have replied "of course not." However, as has become the custom with movie makers these days, no one bothered to ask me before going ahead and making this movie. :)
Basically the movie just sucked. I don't really care much for Beavis and Butthead or King of the Hill but at least they're 22 minute animated shows with short plots that don't have to be developed much. If you ever saw Judge's Milton shorts they're about this weird guy who mumbles about burning the office down because the boss keeps stealing his stapler and asking him to move his desk. yeah okay its amuzing for the minute and a half that the shorts last. What they did with the movie is keep the boss and the Milton character (Played by Steve Roots who i love in Newsradio and Tripping the Rift) and made them into supporting characters, realizing you can't make a whole movie about Milton. So what are we gonna do for a plot? Well we get a main character who hates his job and decides to sabotage the company to get even. And we get a female like Jennifer Aniston (who i hated in "Everything") to play his love interest.
My main complaint is that the movie just wasn't very funny. There were some wacky antics but nothing really made me laugh. If you think Pauly Shore is a comedic genius you just might enjoy this movie, otherwise just stay home and rent Spaceballs.Low-brow entertainment by the creator of other low-brow entertainment.
