Wow. Jesse Dylan, brother of Jakob (The Wallflowers) and son of Bob (The Legend), decided to knock his famous family down a notch with the cinematic masterpiece that is “Kicking And Screaming”.
Oh wait. It was shit.
Generally a movie that would be on my, “I’m way too cool to see that movie” list, I was outnumbered 3 to 1 by my fellow movie going friends. It was a toss up between this and Monster In Law, and I went for the lesser of two evils.
Basically, the movie consists of, and in no particular order, Will Ferrel feeling like (and being) an incompetent idiot, a bunch of ugly kids who can’t play soccer for shit, some really cool Italian kids that I would date if they were at least 15, coffee, vitamins, balls, and Robert Duvall.
The star of the show, the winner of the Oscar, is without a doubt, Steven Anthony Lawrence (Cheaper By The Dozen). This is the ugliest kid I have ever seen on film. Who let this kid into the club? Maybe I’ve been mislead, but I thought Hollywood was strictly for the beautiful people and semi-attractive extras.
The movie is an outlet for Jesse Dylan to express his pain, anguish, and embarrassment for being the runt of the family. The chubby, ugly one that wasn’t blessed with a velvet voice and a bad ass look.
Better luck next time.
