Movie Review – The Beach Bum (2019)

The Beach Bum, 2019.

Directed by Harmony Korine.

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jimmy Buffett, Martin Lawrence, and Jonah Hill.


Moondog (Matthew McConaughey) is a fun-loving, pot-smoking writer living in Florida. When he isn’t partying too hard, he’s trying to finish the next great American novel.

Writer and director of The Beach Bum, Harmony Korine, seems to understand Florida all too well. Between this film and his 2012 cult classic Spring Breakers, Korine perfectly captures the beauty and madness of this place. While it never comes close to his wild look at smalltown living in Gummo, The Beach Bum does a great job of comedically showcasing one of the strangest places in the world.

The southern beach-filled state in the Us is pretty notorious for news articles online about the “Florida Man,” and it feels like this film is ripped straight from one of those headlines.
