Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector. A "bold new vision" in comedy!



Plot Summary: Irreverent as ever, Larry The Cable Guy plays a big city health inspector who's happy with his usual beat of greasy spoon diners and low-rent ethnic restaurants. His easygoing life is turned upside-down when he's saddled with a straight-arrow rookie partner (Iris Bahr) and assigned the biggest case of his career: investigating an outbreak of mysterious food poisonings at the city's swankiest restaurants. Infuriating restaurateurs with his bad manners, Larry still manages to charm a sweet, shy waitress (Megyn Price) into a budding romance. But when his unorthodox methods cost him his job, Larry has to go undercover to bring the conspirators to justice and 'Git-R-Done!'

The writing duo of Max Keeble's Big Move returns! The reviews are pouring in with praise, with the film getting 72% positive on Rotten Tomatoes.

Some quotes from reviews:

"This is serious grown-up entertainment with a sense of history and a sense of style, the kind of picture almost no one knows how to - - or, perhaps more accurately, can find the means to - - make anymore." -- Stephanie Zacharek, SALON.COM

"Director Trent Cooper captures the pathos of the modern South with unflinching veracity turning what could've been a disastrous failure into a poignant and compelling character study of the modern American." -- Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES

"This is an unnerving mood piece that is as atmospheric as it is funny. Perhaps the most surprising new American comedy since Fear of a Black Hat." -- Jami Bernard, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

"Those who appreciate this bold new vision in comedy will find much to savor -- the procession of enchanting and spectacular images is intoxicating." -- Robert Denerstein, DENVER ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS

I'm seeing it tonight, and possibly tomorrow as well based on these positive news. Is anyone else?

I think BWG wrote those quotes.



What's the over/under on his catch phrase?

What's the rating? If it's not "R," it's not even worth a rental.

No reviews anywhere really for it. But it looks like it could be really bad. And not in a good way.

I dunno. Some of the weaker minded denizens of DVDTalk can't seem to take such an observation . . . coming from me.



Boy, are they gonna be sorry on the next "Sopranos" talkback . . . GRRRRR.

Suffice it to say if everyone on a forum associates your name with big hairy man-love you got your message out. Mission accomplished!

And that's the last I'll say on the subject. I made my point. I'll not berate you with it any longer. Like I said in the other thread I'm not going to put you in the ignore list because I value your contribution otherwise.

Enjoy your weekend!

I enjoy him and even saw him live. But it looks like a bad movie. I'll rent it, but it still looks like a bad movie.

Are you gushing?
That seems like a gush.










Oh yeah, I'd watch Chairman of the Board or Collision Course before this movie.

Probably because the studio didn't allow reviewers to get an early screening of the movie. When that happens, that's pretty much the studio's way of saying "we know our movie sucks, but if we don't let anyone give an advance review we might be able to sucker more people into throwing their money away before word spreads."

I really don't know why they're so concerned. If someone actually finds this guy's racist, homophobic semi-literate tripe to be entertaining, no bad review will stop them.

That Larry The Cable Guy is starring in a movie is going to cause that guy from Arrested Development to have a stroke.
Looks like a renter to me though.

Good question, is that possible?

It's possible. According to the reviews on rotten tomatoes (a 13% rating, by the way), this movie is so bad they couldn't even come up with good diarrhea jokes.

Not a fan of his, but this looks really, really bad. Looks like they used up most of the material in the trailer.
