54. The Darwin Awards

The Darwin Awards was a disappointment. It seemed like a good idea for a film, and Joseph Fiennes is good, but the movie just missed. Ty Burrell had a nice little blip as well. Same with the Mythbusters.

The movie is incredibly funny actually (the shower scene), but it just didn’t maintain it in a  enough spots that it got kinda dull. I felt like these were instances where they were trying to fill time or develop the characters, but not quite so much. They kinda veer off in poor directions as well. Keeping the whole serial killer bit in just didn’t seem necessary.

It’s still a good movie to watch, because the funny bits are extremely good and even those which aren’t great still got a laugh. Maybe my expectations were to high since an old high school teacher would go through the actual Darwin Awards with us.
