Tucker and Dale vs Evil

If you are looking for a horror movie for Halloween, this is not it. it is comedy horror movie with a twist. It's an OK movie BUT it has some damn funny one liners and scenes.

if you are looking for a story line..."hillbillies" Tucker and Dale are just some good ole boys who are mistaken for psycho killers by a group of college kids. I am not sure why it has an R rating.

After about 10 minutes or so this movie really gets going. I enjoyed it.

Ran across it on Netflix a couple of weeks ago. Pretty funny. I believe it got the R due to the violent deaths of the co-eds.

I was rolling with the hornets nest scene.

Same with me the first time I watched it. Then I went back. Give it 10 minutes.

I'd recommend it for another go when you're looking for something worth a few chuckles. I thought it was pretty damn funny.

I thought it was pretty funny, too many throw away lines to even remember. he scene where the Sheriff winds up with a piece of nail studded wood embedded on his forehead and Dale tells him to "just walk it off" was lol funny.

Novel idea for a movie, not really a spoof and it had some nice commentary on class issues and perceptions of other people, all wrapped up in a gory horror film/comedy.

Ok so I rewatched it. I did chuckle a few times and that scene Spinner just talked about along with when the kids start trying to kill them and screw it up had me laughing enough that my girlfriend yelled down from upstairs to ask what I was doing. I will say that I'm not usually into blondes but the one with the nice cans should've been topless at some point. Had that happened the movie would have hit every part of classic slasher films.
