Booty Call: 6/10

(SHORT REVIEW)

This comedy is often used as an example of the kind of scatological, sexually-charged and stupid comedies that dominated the moviehouses of the late 90s. Yet Booty Call is nowhere near as bad as its reputation might suggest. Yes, it's ridiculously stupid, and isn't consisently funny enough to excuse its stupidity. But I got on the film's wavelength and wasn't as disgusted as I thought I would be. Booty Call makes no secret about what it is: a sex comedy about two really horny men who have only one goal for the night (and if you can't guess the goal, this film will be far too sophisticated for you). What I appreciated about the movie is that it doesn't cut corners or try to be sentimental as well as ribald...it's pretty wholeheartedly committed to being a juvenile comedy about various embarrassing sexual situations. The movie also deserves some credit for giving more screen time to the female characters and their point-of-view than this type of comedy generally does. Make no mistake, this is no work of art, and it's a pretty bad film, but for what it is, Booty Call at least makes a decent attempt and doesn't leave as bad a taste as many other comedies of its ilk.

Booty Call (1997)

This was probably one of my favorite comedies back in 1997 when it came out. It's too ridiculously funny to be bad and.too hard to not laugh for me. If it came out today I'd probably hate it but when I was 13 I didn't think movies could get much funnier than this.

Booty Call is a terrible premise for a movie, the plot is stupid and the whole movie is worthless. To start with the good news, Jamie Foxx was funny at times in this movie. Thats about it. The other guy was annoying and the two girls were both not very intriguing characters. The whole movie is about two guys trying to have sex with two chicks and they barely stretch it out into a movie with a couple very ridiculous filler scenes. The movie without credits is only 75 minutes and each one was a waste of my time. There is not much to talk about with this film but the setting, plot, script, characters, and dialogue were all stupid and not interesting at all. Overall, Booty Call should not even to be able to rent because of its stupidity and pointless plot.
