Set in the Great White North of Canada, YOGA HOSERS tells the story of Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie - two teenage besties from Winnipeg who spend their lives doing Yoga with their faces in their phones, 'Liking' or 'Not Liking' the real world around them. But when these Sophomore girls are invited to a Senior party by the school hottie, the Colleens accidentally uncover an ancient evil, long buried beneath the Manitoba earth.
It started with a great song, has some charming girls as the protagonists and a ton of celebrity actors that came in to bring their support. Some of the jokes are hilarious and the setup was awesome.
Imagine this movie starring the Depp and Smith daughters, with their families in tow: Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis, Jack Depp, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, with support from the likes of Haley Joel Osment, Justin Long, Austin Butler. Stan Lee is in this movie! And it's a Canadian parody with Yoga hosers chicks fighting devil worshipers and Nazis "the Yoga way". Wow!
And now jump to the film itself which, with this much going for it, barely scratched the average. After the first 30 minutes I was thinking up funny ways of congratulating Kevin Smith for this funny and imaginative movie. After that, though, it all went downhill.
I guess the biggest quarrel with the thing is its inconsistency, jumping from great fun to silly and to plain bad and back again in a matter of seconds. Kevin, I love you, but you need to think your scripts through, man!
