Review of film: “HAMLET 2” -- Politically “INCORRECT” & PROUD of it!

Review of film:  “HAMLET 2”  --   Politically “INCORRECT” & PROUD of it! =   


                 [ RATING:  7.5 of 10 stars ] 

Date Rated: Aug 22, 2008 | Rel. Date: Aug 22, 2008 =

[From an advance preview]:  “I’m horrified-- but also FASCINATED!” That’s something said by a character in this film, & it pretty well DESCRIBES this movie in a nutshell! STEVE COOGAN plays a failed actor who becomes an increasingly irrelevant drama TEACHER at a Tucson high school (attended by SKYLAR ASTIN & PHOEBE STROLE)...

...  He has problems with his wife, more problems with his new “ethnic” (Latino) students (including JOSEPH JULIAN SORIA), & the school wants to end the drama program entirely...

...  He writes a “sequel” to Hamlet, its shocking plotlines get his students “onboard” the project (& their parents angrily against it), & (with support by AMY POEHLER & ELIZABETH SHUE) the film tells the often NUTTY & frequently very FUNNY story of trying to put on the play.

...  Yes, it’s silly, outrageous, unbelievable, “dementedly hilarious” (as a tag-line says)-- & lots of FUN! If you’re easily offended, this film will drive you CRAZY; if you can take it, you’ll probably get quite a “KICK” out of it!
