Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A nonsensical story filled with one-note dimwits and laden with raunchy language, drinking, and sexual antics (at the expense of women), this "comedy" is driven by farcical mean-spiritedness. The in-your-face, unsympathetic hero of this film has a typical persona: He peaked in high school and it has been downhill ever since. In a movie like Most Likely to Murder, it's essential that audiences like the comic hero despite his obvious flaws. Is Billy Green likable? Though Adam Pally gives his all -- a performance without a shred of vanity -- the character simply doesn't have any redeeming virtues, and Pally doesn't have the twinkle in his eye that audiences respond to in some other "jaded" comic performers. Still, there's enough fun in this bawdy effort to satisfy those who don't mind all-out inanity and easy laughs.
