{Movie} Review: Tucker & Dale vs Evil


Tucker & Dale vs Evil (2010)
Starring:  Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk and Katrina Bowden

Two lovable West Virginian hillbillies, are headed to their "fixer-upper" vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin', and have a good time. But when they run into a group of preppy college kids who assume from their looks that they must be in-bred, chainsaw wielding killers, Tucker & Dale's vacation takes a bloody & hilarious turn for the worse.

My thoughts:
I love spoof movies and this one was better than most.  If you have ever seen a “slasher” movie, you will also be able to identify all the clichés.  We have everything from a typical group of college students camping in the woods (and turning up dead one by one) to our hillbillies in a log cabin that seems to have a lot of memorabilia of a killing that happened some years ago.

Poor Tucker and Dale, the are beginning to think that these college kids are on medication . . . and that they forgot to take the medication that morning.   The kids are trying to commit suicide all around their cabin vacation home.  They are impaling themselves on branches and throwing themselves into wood chippers . . . it is really a mess.

The dialogue is very clever and it was a lot of much fun trying to spot all the clichés.  Well worth the watch, if you love spoofs too.  This is not a movie to be taken seriously, it is all about the goofiness.
