Just about every film critic in the United States has done a real hatchet job on Gentlemen Broncos (reviews have been dismal), which just goes to show you how out of touch they are with the audience this movie is intended for—namely, me and my friends. Four of us went, thought it was hilarious, and had tears streaming down our faces because we were laughing so hard. Three of us were slightly buzzed, sure, but I swear I was stone-cold sober.
Anyway, I won't go into it too much because I'm not even supposed to be blogging on weekends, but I felt I had to emerge to make sure you see this film if you're in one of the few cities it's playing—I'm not sure how long it's going to last in theaters. Just know that it's the third film from the folks who brought you Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre, both of which I found hysterically funny (the former more so). If those films are up your proverbial alley, then the even weirder and more absurd Gentlemen Broncos will give you a comedy boner. (If you thought those first two litmus-test movies were annoying trifles, dear god, stay away.)
By the way, the Gentlemen Broncos website is pretty awesome.
