Movie Review: Year One
A colloidal suspension of one-note jokes in a mythogenic solution, but not a complete waste of time.
Starts out pretending to be Prehistoric Animal House and ends up wanting to be Life of Brian Lite, but never really earns either mantle. Meanwhile, there's quite a bit of History of the World, Part Uno in act two, but Mel Brooks did it better.
If you've got a gap in your Netflix queue, check out the "Leroy Jenkins" special feature on the DVD. I wouldn't say that alone justifies the rental, but it is probably the most amusing single thing I saw tonight.
