Gentlemen Broncos

Movie:  Gentlemen Broncos
Like/Don't Like:  Um.  Well.  Okay, yes, I'm on board with this.

As a general rule I'm not much for movies with excessive vomiting or other gross-out humor.  I'm a sensitive soul.  And I usually max out with a Jared Hess movie about an hour into them. 

But there were several times during this movie when I laughed loud and hard.  So yes, I liked it.  I liked it mostly because of Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords, who played a sci-fi writer.  And Sam Rockwell, who plays essentially the same character he played in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - which is not a bad thing.

The story is sparse, and also irrelevant because the whole point of these types of movies is to have a succession of random scenes that show off funny characters and non-sequiturs.  If you know this going in you'll love it.  Especially the scene where we learn how to make up sci-fi names.  It is hilarious and also dead-on.

Amen to your review. Part of me loved it, but part of me was embarrassed for having seen it. I like movies that make me laugh hard (even if they are stupid)
