Review: MISS MARCH


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!

How much did you get paid to drop the review on this obvious piece of garbage?

This is exactly the kind of review that Harry Knowles has been called out for publishing, only taken to a far more obvious extreme, pandering to further the box office sales of the next rancid film to which Fox is subjecting the public.

Why don't you take the money they paid you and go get your soul out of hock?

A.G.'S RIGHT!
YOU'VE BEEN PAID! FORGET THE THE FACT THAT THE WHITEST KIDS ARE CONSIDERED ONE OF THE FUNNIEST COMEDY TROUPES EVER MADE!
FORGET THE AMOUNT OF LAUGHTER THAT CAME FROM THE TRAILER!
FORGET THE FACT THAT A.G. NEVER SAW THE MOVIE!

YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY A AUTOMATON DRONE!
SO STOP DICKING AROUND AND DO SOME ACTUAL REVIEWS DAMMI!

Dang sir, I seriously enjoyed the movie. I had some damn hard laughs and thoroughly enjoyed it. Check it out if you want or don't if you don't.

Don't just judge it for no reason. I thought it was bloody hilarious and I can't wait for the DVD extras.

Personally, this movie feels like it is going to sabotage itself. It's a cross of Whitest Kids, Sex Drive (which isn't even out on DVD yet) minus Amish Seth Green, no end of teen angst movies, and everything Playboy. I'll have to see it to say otherwise, but I've got my strong doubts.
