Road to Mexico

No one will ever accuse Larry The Cable Guy of being subtle nor should anyone ever say any film he's ever in is a work of art.  Delta Farce is purely what you'd expect a movie to be with this kind of title, silly.

Larry the Cable Guy just got fired from a resturant job and his friend Bill, an unemplyed layabout and Everett a tetched little redneck are having fun at their abandonned National Guard base when suddenly an order comes in for more troops to the Middle East and Col Gilgore (no not Robert Duvall) comes to whip the "pissants" into shape and get them ready for action.  While en route a lightning storm occurs making the cargo plane dump extra supplies and that includes Larry and his friends.  Waking up in the middle of a desert, Larry, Bill and Everett get their gear ready and head off to Baghdad, only problem is they landed in Mexico and end up fighting off gangsters instead of terrorist insurgents.

Sounds pretty stupid doesn't it?  Yeah it does, and yes it is.  There is not one piece of brain power in this movie and even the premise of an Army base in Georgia flying over Mexico to get to Iraq is pushing it.  A lot is cliched, some of the jokes are sitcom level and the training montage of sorts feels like Police Academy or at the very least, a bad cartoon and no one is going to win an academy award for thei acting, not even Danny Trejo who steals the show as the gangster leader, the dreaded Carlos Santana (no not the guitar player)

In spite of all that and a side of nachos, I had fun with this movie.  It didn't overstay it's welcome, it isn't numbing with special effects and CGI and yeah the leads are dummys but you want to see them make it home safe with somne dignity intact.

This is one of those movies you really need to set expectations low to enjoy.  If your a Larry fan, then maybe keep them a little higher.  Keep in mind that this movie telegraphs a mile away, so if you think it's going to annoy you, then you should have not even turned it on to begin with and Git R Done with another movie.

Quick Tip by . July 04, 2010
Larry the Cable Guy's second film pits him with fellow blue collar comic Bill Engvall and with DJ Qualls, are off to Iraq via Mexico after an accident dumps them off in the middle of nowhere. Keith David and Danny Trejo are here for an easy check. The Boot Camp scene plays like a cheap Police Academy but once Larry and company are where they shouldn't be, it's all fun. If you liked Health inspector, it's just as good.

This movie is about three dumb guys who get picked by pure dumb luck for a questionable mission under a dumb sergeant. They accidentally get dumped in the wrong place, where they continue to do extremely dumb things, while other actors humiliate themselves and do things that are often embarrassing to the countries and stereotypes they represent.     The End     P.S.: This movie is indubitably not a good example of the comedy of Larry the Cable Guy and Bill …

Delta Farce
Larry The Cable Guy is an extremely funny comedian. Bill Engvall is an extremely funny comedian. Keith David is a very talented actor. Danny Trejo is a very talented actor. But put all this talent together with no direction and a choppy script of failed one-liners and you get Delta Farce.     Bill, Larry, and Everett (D.J. Qualls) are army reserves when they get scooped up in a Iraq deployment. Finding a quiet place to sleep on the plane, they all curl up in a Humvee, which is …
