Hilarious at times, dull at others, but always funny
23 March 2004 | by hanik_1999See all my reviews

Went to see this movie in San Fran after getting hilarious fliers featuring a really, well, STUPID-looking George W. smiling awkwardly, as only Dubya can. But the movie is not so much about Bush as about, well, stupidity, idiocy, moronism (?) and how they've infected society. We always hear "Sex sells", but this entertaining documentary shows how "Stupid sells" and features some hysterical trailers by the Canadian company that produced it, Trailervision. Kung-Fu Jesus and Pourquoi Pas? (the sequel to...Pourquoi) are shown, and believe me, you will laugh. But the short film (about 75 minutes) also tries to make you think--who'da thunk it in a film basically glamorizing the absence of thought?--about how popular stupidity has become in our culture, arts, and politics. Definitely worth a view, if you can find it. I saw it on 16th & Valencia in San Fran; hopefully it will make its way to New York soon. And check out the trailer of Kung-Fu Jesus on the Trailervision website. No, I don't get a cut by shilling it; my bro and I just found it so friggin' hilarious that you'd be, um, stupid not to see it. Enjoy.
