When a couple of lazy hunter-gatherers (Jack Black and Michael Cera) are banished from their primitive village, they set off on an epic journey through the ancient world in Columbia Pictures’ comedy “Year One.” Harold Ramis directs. The screenplay is by Harold Ramis and Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg (The Office) from a story by Harold Ramis. The film is produced by Harold Ramis, Judd Apatow, and Clayton Townsend.
Okay. Where do I start? Do I mention the character who tells his friend he committed incest with his mother? Or the scene in which a character eats poop? Or the scene in which a virgin man has sex with his virgin girlfriend, and tells everyone, “I just had sex with my girlfriend”, or the biblical stories which are altered for humor, including Cain murdering his brother Abel which is done in camp style for laughs? In other words, although there were maybe two or three clean humorous moments in the movie, for the most part a lot of people would be offended by watching this film. After it was over I said to someone, “I want two hours of my life back!” Actually, the movie is an hour and a half long. That may be the best thing I can say about it. The torture time of enduring this insipid movie is under two hours.
It goes without saying that this movie is not awarded the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. Don’t bother with this one as you will not be intellectually challenged at all. However, “Imagine That” is still showing and is a wonderful family movie.
We suggest you give “Imagine That” a view.
