Serious Jest: (Worth Watching) This is a straightforward OG-shows-these-young-bucks-what’s-up flick, but it’s pretty entertaining. Although some of the events are cheesy and/or ridiculous, they seem to be deliberate camp. Trejo is extremely likeable, and this is one of those times that you can actually root for his character instead of just admire how thorough he is. In contrast to the rest of the dialogue, which is so corny it’s actually funny (again, I suspect it’s purposefully campy), the insults hurled between Trejo and John Duffy are conventionally witty and hilarious. This is a good movie to throw in during a hurricane party–assuming your power’s not out–like I did during Sandy.
