Favorite Movie Tuesday

This. Movie. Is. Hilarious.

Rusty DVR'd it for me the other night & it has become a nightly ritual to watch it before bed. I crack up EVERY time I see it & cant believe I didn't go watch this movie when it first came out in theaters (btw, Rusty's making all our movie choices now since I obviously suck at it).

Just in case some of you haven't seen this comical movie here's the dilio on it: Zed (Jack Black) , a prehistoric would-be hunter, eats from a tree of forbidden fruit and is banished from his tribe, accompanied by Oh (Michael Cera), a shy gatherer. On their travels, they meet Cain and Abel on a fateful day, stop Abraham from killing Isaac, become slaves, and reach the city of Sodom where their tribe is now enslaved. Zed and Oh are determined to rescue the women they love, Maya and Eema. Standing in their way is Sodom's high priest and the omnipresent Cain. Zed tries to form an alliance with Princess Innana, which may backfire. Can an inept hunter and a smart but slender and diffident gatherer become heroes and make a difference?

Sounds funny huh? Oh, you know it does. This movie starts out with the funnies from the very beginning to the very end. Rusty's been a big fan of Jack Black's for awhile but I never really thought he w
as all that funny. I think he has some funny parts in this movie but I have to say that Michael Cera did really well.

My favorite parts have to be when they both meet Abel & Cane ("Oh, what have I done?, What have I done again? What have I continued to do?"), when Oh is left to sleep with Isaac's creepy sheep "loving" brother in the barn *gag*, and when Oh is shackled upside down & pees on himself ("Try to keep your mouth closed", "I'm peeing on myself too...on the inside."

If you're in the mood for a comedy I recommend you get yourself this movie! Seriously...Watch. It.


  1. I've been wondering if this was funny or not...glad to hear!!!!!

  2. I haven't seen this... we were pretty skeptical of it when it came out. We'll have to watch it for sure!

  3. i can't bring myself to watch this... or anything with the guy from "taladaga nights', it just gets unde rmy skin. Now Rich loves these movies, and i think he watched this one and liked it a lot.


I love comments!
