Blu Ray Tuesday #2

Last night, we were all pretty wiped out. I think everyone was in bed by 9. Yes, we really are THAT cool! We didn't even go to the video store to pick out a DVD, we just found something on girl roomie's hard drive.

The movie:
The menu: Red Rooster meals (for my US friends, this is an Aussie version of KFC)

This movie was lots of fun- very silly and rude but it made me laugh out loud several times. It was a homage (or perhaps a parody?) to those 80s fantasy films, complete with an extremely fake-looking puppet character. I have to say that most of the humour came from characters in medieval costumes using modern swear words or anachronisms, but yeah, I'm a sucker for a cheap laugh.

The actual storyline was pretty good. I thought my celebrity girlfriend, Zooey Deschanel was extremely underused but that's what you get for playing a kidnapped damsel in distress.

Recommended? Um... yes... If you are in the mood for a silly movie and you won't be offended by stuff, then go for it.
