Okay, let me begin by saying that this film, and I’ll even quote it for you guys, “is the best film I’d seen in a while”, (you can just copy and paste that quote wherever you’d like, I made it easy for you). Yeah, that’s super bold to say and in a way, you really can’t trust a person who doesn’t have much under her belt minus a few podcasts and reviews. So, let me explain just why I believe that anyone who is a fan of both Kevin Smith and Canada should watch the journey between two best friends unfold.
There will be spoilers so don’t read any further unless you feel totally sure about your decisions.
The film stars Harley Quinn Smith, (Smith’s very own daughter), and Lily Rose Depp, (Johnny Depp’s very own daughter), as best friends Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie who work at a Canadian convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. Doesn’t already have you hooked? Well, the teenagers are invited to a ‘grade twelve’ party by two older boys, (played by Austin Butler and Tyler Posey), who happen to be fucking Satanist that want to disembowel the Colleen’s. Does that have you hooked? No? Well, the convenience store is soon overrun by murderous Nazi bratwurst that kills the boys and leaves the girls to fight for themselves.
Please, tell me that you want to watch it now.
The girls are arrested and then interrogated by Guy Lapointe, a strange French detective who happens to be played by Johnny Depp himself. Of course, he believes the girl’s story as he himself has evidence of these ‘Bratzi’ monsters. After failing to defeat the monsters, the Colleen’s are taken to the bratzi’s ruler, Adronicus Arcane, a Canadian Nazi who froze himself so he could rise again later.
The film is so much stupid fun and you can’t help but laugh alongside all the guest appearances like Haley Joel Osment and Justin Long from the film that started the whole thing, Tusk, (another conversation for another day). There is plenty more to find in this film but it would be terrible of me to spoil it any further for you.
While I must admit that this isn’t Smith’s greatest work, it definitely does not deserve to be considered a ‘bad film’, but rather an unforgettable one. In ten years, I guarantee that this film, as well as many/all of Smith’s films, (future, current, and past), will grace film lover’s, and general fun lover’s, shelves around the world.
I know that many of them grace mine.
