forgettable 90's farce
16 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Jerky Boys movie. I want to forget that they even existed. Their unfunny, awful albums that they cranked out right around the same time this joke of a film came out, that just promoted crank calling various people just for giggles. Low morale if you ask me. Is the movie any improvement over all this? Uh, no! Now they've gotten themselves in hot water, by impersonating the wrong guy, have made them a target from the mob. And just to set the record straight, the only reason why this movie was even made, was so everyone could see what these guys really looked like in real life. The entire film is just an excuse to make a feature film, and the length of the movie barely meets the requirements of even that. If you're looking for classic laughs from the retro days, I suggest other titles, other better titles, but for me, The Jerky Boys was just a 100 percent total bust for me. I hope it will be for you, too.
