THE TENTPOLE CRITIC: ‘The Last Weekend of Summer’

I did get a chance to see the other two big films that are opening this weekend. Halloween and Balls of Fury certainly have some things to offer a few filmgoers, but most people are going to be disappointed on both counts. I personally loved Balls of Fury. Though, I have read nothing but negative praise about it (especially on the Internet). People simply don't like this movie, and I'm not sure why. I think it steams from a certain hatred of Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon. These guys, improvisational wizards on TV with Viva Variety and Reno 911!, have been doing incredibly well on the script circuit. If you didn't know, they also wrote the very successful Disney film The Pacifier. It, too, was panned by the Internet shit-talkers. Then came a long a little monster hit by the name of Night at the Museum. This sucker made bank, and garnered these guys a healthy paycheck in the screenwriting after-life. They're even banging out a sequel as we speak.

For some reason, the talk backers dismissed this gargantuan moneymaker too, calling it names and putting "kick me" signs on its back. I never really understood why. Maybe its because I saw Night at the Museum drunk, at the drive-in. I thought it was incredibly fun. I enjoyed its breezy attitude. It reminded me of past films like Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Big Trouble in Little China. It was a diversion. A tasty little truffle. And people (at least on the internet) seemed to hate it. I think, because, here, again, were a couple of guys having a lot of fun with what they were doing. That seems to make the basement dwellers really mad. They hate to see filmmakers having fun. Look at Bryan Singer's Superman Returns. He obviously didn't experience any joy on that set, and it shows on screen. Subsequently, the critical community has been overtly kind to him in light of that atrocity. Hmm?
