Premise: I watch movies I've never seen before and post my thoughts on them here.

The Scale of DUDE! to dude. I rate movies on my own personalized scale, listed below from best to worst:

DUDE!

Totally Sweet

Solid

's Good

On the Fence

Meh.

Not so much

Seriously?

dude.

----------------------------------------


Each flick also gets a Re-Watchability Level rating:

5: If you tell The Tauz you've never seen this movie, he will probably call you a chump. Then he will sit you down and re-watch it with you. (He'd also re-watch it by himself, if you choose to continue being a chump.) It's that good/important.

4: The Tauz will make time to re-watch this whole movie.

3: The Tauz would re-watch this movie if it's already in progress. He'd be okay with not seeing the whole thing again.

2: The Tauz doesn't really want to, but he will re-watch this movie if there's something in it for him (or if he somehow has no choice). You'll have to convince him to see it again.

1: The Tauz will actively avoid re-watching this movie. He will walk out of a room if it is on. For really, you guys.

Reader Participation: If you have a favorite movie in mind and you'd like to know if I have seen it, just ask! Scroll down and click on Ask me if I've seen... or find @thetauz on Twitter.

What a way to finish off Bad Movie Week.
This is a movie with a bit of an identity crisis. Am I a kid’s movie or a terrible movie aimed at low-brow comedy-seeking adults? If it is the former, then, fine… I get it. But if it’s the latter, then there’s no excuse for it to have ever been made.
It’s really bad. The comedy is so poorly done, that the fart jokes didn’t even make ME laugh… and I will laugh at damn near any fart joke.
Redeemers: 1) Barely a redeemer, Walken’s brief presence as a mobster step-father only shows us a glimmer of his usual brilliance. 2) Estella Warren is a pretty girl.
Also, way to misuse and bastardize Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode" riff, you assholes.
Seriously?
Re-Watchability: Level 1
