Freaked: Dumb fun, VERY dumb fun
Starring the other half of Bill & Ted Alex Winter alongside William Sadler, Brooke Shields, Randy Quaid, Bobcat Goldthwaite, Mr T & a cameo appearance by Morgan Fairchild this bizarre horror comedy is better than it should have been.
What I mean by that is it's stupid really really stupid.
It tells the story of an actor who sells out and becomes the spokesperson for an evil chemical company. Somewhere along the way he and his friends fall foul of a twisted freakshow owner who doesn't find his freaks, he makes them!
Full of slapstick humour this will appeal to people who like the old Airplane (1980) movies. If you don't like a joke then fear not because another will be along in a matter of seconds.
The humour is purile but it works very well as one of those take your brain out pieces of entertainment.
With "Freaks" like the dog boy, beast boy, the worm, the nose, sock man, and the crazy frogman (Which is a guy in a diving suit) *Badamstish* the creature effects are excellent and deserved the awards they won.
If you're seeking something harmless but stupid this right here is for you.
Some jokes really hit the mark
Painfully dumb in places
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Being half cocked isn't what it's cracked up to be
I can't look at Randy Quaid anymore without seeing him humping his wife while she's wearing a Rupert Murdoch mask
Bobcat Goldthwaite makes everything better
