151 Proof Hangover: G-Force Review
[After creating and then testing the drinking rules, Swan and Penguin recap their adventures with the movie. Offering their thoughts on the quality of the film itself, as well as how theÂ drinking rulesÂ held up, and if worth using.]
We’ve been slacking on our Hangover, I know. Part of it is timing, and the other part is one of us forgetting to write about the film! We’ll do our best to get these our in a more timely fashion.
Either way, last week, we checked out G-Force, and it wasn’t an awful film. No where close to being a great film, but it wasn’t awful. Check out our full thoughts.
I am still completely blown away by the cast they got for this movie. Sam Rockwell, Penelope Cruz, Tracy Morgan, Jon Favruea, Will Arnett, Zach Galifinakis and Nicolas Fucking Cage. It is kind of ridiculous. I am sure I am forgetting a few others but you can’t blame me with a cast this size. In a movie about secret agent Guinea Pigs. Secret Fucking Agents.
I will be honest, going into this I was expecting unwatchable garbage and I was pleasantly surprised. It isn’t a good movie by any means but it is watchable and even enjoyable at points. I was expecting many, many cheesy puns and pop culture reference but there were very few.Â ThoughÂ for some god damn reason every song appeared to be the same Black Eyed Peas song. Not even a shot at them, well yeah its a shot, but I am pretty sure it was the same song every time.
This film was pleasant. It wasn’t offense as one might imagine when dealing with secret agents who happen to be Guinea Pigs, and the plot was kind of all over the place with them being special or not, but didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things.
Also, the CG holds up pretty well in this film, which isn’t always the case.Â
As Swan mentioned, the voice cast is pretty strong.. even if the characters can be a bit of a stereotype. Also how is it in a movie about rodents that the “black” Guinea Pig (voiced by Tracey Morgan) still ends up with the “Latina” Guinea Pig (Voiced by Penelope Cruz), it seems a bit.. cliche.Â
Speaking of, this film does a “Hot chick coming out of the pool/beach” and drying off by shaking around in the sunset… except with a guinea pig… yeah!
This movie started out with a bang, with bunches and bunches of drinks in the first 10 or so minutes. After the opening scene though it did die down a bit while managing to stay consistent with our alcohol consumption. I think it worked out that we finished one drink in opening scene, one drink in final scene and maybe 2 in between. 3 at the most. So five drinks a movie is not bad but it is not the most drinking we have had to do or will have to do.Â
So our rules will work but you may be better off just drinking everytime an animal talks in the film. Enjoy
I’m just giving this lower because I don’t remember drinking that much… and not in the good way.. of blacking out. It’s just kind of spotty beyond the opening sequence, which did have a lot of drinks, and a rather overdone climax.
If we were to add a rule after watching the movie, I think folks should drink for whenever they say G-Force. Technically, it doesn’t fit our “movie title” in a movie rule since it’s a proper noun. Lucky for us because they say it a LOT in this film. And if you want, a second drink whenever it is said with a fist pump!
G-Force isn’t a bad film. It isn’t a bad drinking film either. I won’t recommend you go out and rent it now, but if you’re bored and it’s on TV, you could do worse.
