The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Meet bad coach Rick Vice, a redneck psycho with a suspect record (the attempted murder of a Pee Wee football team). When the Pulham Blue Cocks coach drops dead on the sidelines, Vice is the last resort to turn around the worst team in college football's worst division (it's one step up from Nerf). Marshall Cook costars as Mitch, the slacker second-string quarterback who butts helmets with Vice, his worst nightmare, but maybe Vice's demented methods will be just the spark to turn Mitch and the Blue Cocks into winners.
All I knew about the film other than this was a sports comedy was that it starred Andy Dick who can be hilarious at times so I went into it a bit cautious but hopeful. The basic storyline is about a Division 3 football team the Pulham Blue Cocks, when their coach has a heart attack on the sidelines the school decides to hire Rick Vice who is a bit crazy and he comes with a violent temper. What seems like a horrible decision might just be what the team needs to get them going but not before Vice knocks a few heads around.
Andy Dick was born to play Rick Vice, he takes the role and runs with it giving one of his best comedic performances ever here. This is slapstick comedy at it's finest, it rude, crude and offensive but it never pretends to be anything more and for that reason it succeeds. If I had to go into details about the plot I wouldn't even know where to begin because there's one hilarious moment after the other so this is one of those comedies that is best seen and not told about. If you're offended easily then maybe this isn't a movie for you but if this is the kind of comedy you like and you're looking for something funny to watch and enjoy a good adult comedy then I highly suggest picking this one up.
I have not laughed this hard in a very long time, there's so many funny moments in the film you will barely find the time to breath. Besides Andy Dick the film also has a terrific supporting cast which includes, Adam Corolla (The Man Show) and MadTV veterans Will Sasso, Debra Wilson, Mo Collins and Bryan Callen. They all give great performances and compliment Andy's outrageous behavior perfectly.
The bottom line is if you're looking for something light yet funny you're not going to find much better than this one but if these types of raunchy comedies are not your bag then move on.
There's really not a lot to talk about here because story wise it's pretty straight forward but the it's the cast and the hilarious and often clever dialogue that makes it so damn good.
Andy Dick rarely disappoints when it comes to comedy and he is at his finest here, if you're a fan of comedies then "Division III: Football's Finest" is not to be missed so go out and "Get Some."
