Movie Reviews

Indifferent plot, a fabulous set piece on western squalor
A. Wolanow | Las Vegas NV | 09/04/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When I first saw Scorched, I had the same lackluster response to it as most of the other reviewers. I fully expected to forget it utterly, and was quite surprised to find that my thoughts kept returning to it. Eventually I was motivated to see it again and find out why, and the second time through I figured it out.

While the movie does only a tolerable job of telling a funny story and holding the viewer's attention, it delivers a devastatingly accurate rendition of the cultural wasteland that is the California-Arizona desert.

In the same way that Lost in Translation so exquisitely captures the feeling of working abroad on your own, Scorched captures the utterly sublime squalor of small desert towns. The setting is squalid, the things that happen in the plot are squalid, and above all, the characters are so delicisouly squalid.

Taken as a portrait rather than a story, this movie is a masterpiece."
Not your every day ordinary comedy
MoonLitTree | USA | 09/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are accustomed to commonplace punch line/situation comedy you will be amazed how casually yet successfully this movie managed to deliver its slings and arrows of outrageous comedic sense to audience.
With a spectacular cast and hilarious development of plots, each carefully crafted next-door character hoans its own idea of personal vendetta while driving towards a seemingly fiascic stage where all gets tangled up in their web of outlandish karma.
With unique arrays of pleasant soundtrack, and bits and pieces of humorous touch, this movie is classic in its own way and certainly refreshing in its comedic entertainment.

A Fun Witty Comedy
J. Toney | .. | 02/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great comedy of errors and luck. It has the same cinematic feel of Rat Race but without the cheesy politically correct ending.All of the main characters are in some way tied to a bank. John Cleese is the ecentric millionare client that sells "How to Make Money in Real Estate" books on tape. Woody Harrelson is a strange dessert animal loving weirdo that wishes to avenge death of his duck's mother. If these two character breifs sound like something you normally like then you will definitely like this movie."
A Decent Flick
sidwreck | Wonju, South Korea | 02/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD on a whim while in my local shop. I figured, hey, it's got 2 hot chicks in it, and 2 guys who are pretty funny. I was right. I laughed the whole way through this movie. It's got a decent plot, good solid characters who are funny, and a quirky way about it. If you're into movies like "How To Kill Your Neighbor's Dog", "An Everlasting Piece", or "100 Girls" then this movie is your cup 'o tea."
