Tucker and Dale vs Evil


Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Eli Craig. 2010.

This is hilarious. It’s one of those hyper-aware horror comedies: It’s excruciatingly aware of all the clichés of the genre, and is also aware that we’re aware of them. This sort of thing can go very wrong, but it’s impossible not to be charmed by Alan Tyduk and Tyler Labine as the hapless guys who stumble around here.

Squeamish as I am, the inevitable hyper-violence is less than funny to me, and some of the schtick is a bit on the Benny Hill side.

Still, when it’s funny it’s very very funny.
