After falling into a coma on prom night 4 years ago, Eugene Pratt wakes up to find out that his girlfriend from high school is now a playboy centerfold. Now he's gotta win her back.
That's the premise of the upcoming film, Miss March written and directed by, and starring Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore. Maybe you know them from YouTube or their TV series The Whitest Kids U Know. Regardless, they are on the up-and-coming.
Miss March is hilarious. Zach Cregger plays Eugene Pratt, a virginal high schooler, who spends his weekend with his equally virginal girlfriend Cindi Whitehall (Raquel Alessi). They go from school to school advocating abstinence and showing 3rd graders pictures of STD's. Then there is Eugene's best friend, Tucker Cleigh (Trevor Moore), who loves to party and read Playboy. To him, the Playboy is the most serious ideology to live by, and when he says he reads it for the articles, you had better believe him. They catch a ride to prom with Tucker's good friend - Horsedick.mpeg (Craig Robinson), who is an up-and-coming Rapper. After Prom, it's time to make love with Cindi for the first time. Eugene does the exact opposite - he falls down the stairs and BAM - is in a coma for the next four years. Long story short, he wakes up, finds out Cindi is a Playboy bunny, and must go off to win her back by the annual Playboy party which is the following weekend.
Zach Cregger plays a great straight man with fantastic one-liners, and easily keeps the story flowing. Trevor Moore on the other hand reminds me of a young Jim Carrey from back in the Dumb and Dumber days. His comedic timing is genius, as are his expressions. The two could not be more mismatched, yet perfect for each other. The big show stealer though is easily Craig Robinson as Horsedick (.MPEG!). The character is so absurd, but you can't help but love him, and the scenes on his party-bus are some of the funniest things I've seen in a while.
Get yourselves to the theater and check this one out. It's got some gross moments, but like a midnight snack - it never failed to leave me satisfied. Very satisfied.
Miss March hits theaters this March!
