Truth be told I'm biased. I've been a life long sucker for fart and dick jokes. It's quite easy to win me over if you throw in a good one or two. That said, there a certainly classes in the genre. Like you have with pizza joints. Not every pizza place knows how to serve a decent slice of pizza. Or knows to serve it at the right time and temperature. Some movies of this kind are just vulgar. Which is not funny. To me. There are movies that are just too much too easy or simply too unfunny. Even (or maybe especially) jokes like the ones in this movie can be very badly timed or worse, not timed at all and thus spoil all the fun. There have been tons of Luke warm or just lame raunchy comedies over the years.
Not 'The Bet'. First of all this is an indie movie, which is hard to tell from production. It is incredibly well done! Second, the cast. Hello! There's many a blockbuster that doesn't even get close to the cast 'The Bet' managed to get. 3 world famous wrestlers to begin with. From what I know about wrestling they have to be good 'fakers' to make it in the ring, but does that automatically make them good screen actors? In this case they did a magnificent job! The infamous Diamond Dallas Page playing a man who lost his wife and so starts working on a lego lady to replace the loss in all seriousness, is
golden. The man is a wrestler!! Making tits out of legos!! Go figure.
There's farts, there's dicks, there's pussy and titty and the word 'comeback' will never ring the same again, but there's also heart in this movie. It's even a bit cute. So guys, take your lady. It's OK and almost romantic. Girls, take your guy. Just leave out the 'romantic'. It's a raunchy comedy not intended to offend you, but if anything in this movie offends you then I'm sorry
...just take that stick out of your behind.
