Delta Farce Movie Review
Larry the Cable Guy is the star of Delta Farce, and that's pretty much all you need to know. A member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, he's become as much of a household name as comedians can become, and for some reason his agent convinced him that he would be good in movies. That, my friend, is a complete and utter lie.
Delta Farce is, as you'd expect, a pretty lame comedy about three idiot Army reservists who are recruited to go into Iraq, even though they lack even the most basic of reasoning skills. When they crash land in the desert with no other military personnel around, they take it upon themselves to secure the country themselves. Unfortunately for them, they fail to realize that everyone speaks Spanish and looks like Mexicans. If you didn't get that they are actually in Mexico, then maybe this movie is for you after all.
In reality, the movie isn't completely terrible as I expected it to be, but the jokes are so uneven and random that after twenty minutes, you've seen just about everything the film has to offer. To make matters worse, the film was clearly written with Larry's comedy in mind, as the screenplay is full of plenty of jokes that sound more suited for a redneck stand up routine than a movie, and even contains his catch phrase "Git 'R Done". Larry isn't terrible in the movie as he fits in quite well, but put him in a real movie and he'll definitely need work. DJ Qualls is moderately entertaining, as one would expect from DJ Qualls.
If you're a big fan of Larry the Cable Guy, then I'm sure you've already seen the movie and probably enjoyed it. If not, or you don't know who he is or like comedies with a bit of intelligence to them, Delta Farce is certainly one you can skip.
