| Huh
I should start off by saying that I'm not a lover of quirky movies-- art-house or indy or weird. John Wick is my favourite film. Having said that, I loved this. The film is just funny. I watched an interview with the director and he claimed it played on an "English" sense of humour. I agree. Only the English get English humour, so I'm not sure everyone would find this as amusing as I did. The comedy is in an expression or a tiny throwaway line. In some crazy ways it reminds me of The World's End, the movie with Simon Pegg about a group of ageing men trying to regain their youth. In both movies you have the leads playing it totally straight, which only goes to emphasise the utter madness going on around them (in the Simon Pegg movie it's killer robots and in Men & Chicken it's...well, men with chickens, but you get my point). We start out with two slightly odd men (Mads's character Elias in particular) only to descend step by step, when they meet their other brothers, into total madness and chaos, which only gets funnier and funnier as your basis for judging madness slips and slips. I'm not sure which scene I liked more, the trip to the kindergarten to get rehired (I wouldn't hire these men as suicide bombers let alone to work with kids) or the one to pick up "girls" in an old people's home. This is one I'll watch again.
