Movie Reviews

Man Imitates Bugs Bunny
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 05/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie did not do well in the theaters, it got bad reviews, even Leguizamo has apologized for it. I don't care: this was one of the funniest movies ever! It has Jeffrey Jones, the guy from "Howard the Duck" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Now you know a film has to be hilariously corny if he is in it. The great thing about this movie is how Leguizamo acts like a live, human version of Bugs Bunny. This is the type of slapstick rarely seen in modern films. Further, Leguizamo mocks all people who think of race in solely black&white terms by his ethnic drag of all cultures. Too funny. And the "Latinus S___ticus" gag was rollover funny! I hated the homophobia and how gayness is rendered white only (as if Miami doesn't have many Latino, black, and Asian gay men), but still this movie is great!"
It's official! The Pest is a non-stop laugh riot.

"Comedian John Leguizamo stars in the funniest film ever made as a scam artist named Pest who lets a group of neo-Nazis hunt him so he can gain $50,000 to pay off bets he placed with the fictional Scottish mob. Jeffery Jones co-stars as a native of Germany who has succesfully hunted all races of human beings except for one: Latino. His son, Himmell, (Eduardo Ballini) is the exact opposite of what his father is as evidented in his outragously funny one-liners (e.g. "I want to grow up to be a hair dresser and write musicals."). Pest is helped out often in the film by his two nutty friends, Ninja (Freddy Rodriguez) and Chubby (Aries Spears). They provide their own brand of slapstick humor into the bubbling brew of comedy which every character provides ingredients to. It's very sad to see how underrated The Pest is, seeing how hundreds of people (including myself) believe this film to be the funniest movie ever made. It has everything a comedy needs and so much more. I strongly to encourage everyone to go out and rent "The Pest." You'll lose your voice laughing..."
You'll hate yourself, but you'll laugh your a** off...

"Is this a great movie? No, it isn't. It's an incredibly stupid movie - the writing is about on the level of what was shown on USA's Up All Night circa 1991. But John Leguizamo is so d@mn funny that you will laugh in spite of it. It's kind of fitting that Bevis and Butthead are referred to several times in the film, because that's about what it's like, minus the social satire. You could spend all day listing flaws (the humor is juvenile and often in bad taste, Jeffrey Jones' ridiculous German accent comes and goes without warning, and the guy playing his son shows no acting ability at all...) - but what's the point? You know what you're getting here. Pauly Shore _wishes_ he could do it this well."
Fun and irreverant film

"This is a movie I remember watching when I was a teenager. It is a mix between the Wayans brothers and Ferris Bueller. The film's humor is often short and cartoonish set in the early 90s. John Leguizamo is incredibly funny in his role-a hustling latino caught in the most deadly game. If it were meant to be serious, Leguizamo's exploits as a Chinese waiter and the snake-crazed son of the hunter most certainly destroyed its chances.

A fun movie if you want mindless humor and a nonexistent plot. Might sound bad from that line, but I enjoy the movie."
