Napoleon Dynamite, Tobe is a nerd with a need. is not short on obsessions – Music 30′s and old magazines movies monsters loom large. But his one true devotion, blinding is a 20-year-old retired prn star named Monica Velour.
So shortly after graduating from high school, preparing your car – in fact his grandfather’s lunch truck, with a great hot dog on the roof – and sets off to find her.
Bad idea. Bad movie, too. “Meet Monica velvet” is set in the present, but the plot feels like a throwback to one of the 80′s after “Porky’s” future for sex comedies. Its main character, however, feels a bit more modern – and even more overexposed.
Perhaps the director Keith Bearden has seen “Napoleon Dynamite” too many times. O 100 too many times. His star Dustin Ingram seems that film nerd king, his hair a mess of curls, his face a constant O. agape
Save a little of Napoleon Dynamite – and, frankly, a bit of “Napoleon Dynamite” – was a long way. This film sticks with Tobe for a long time; long before the most interesting ones appear. And when Tobe circle flight in a daze with his mouth open, as a kind of unwanted goldfish is absolutely no fun at all.
There is a great performance in “Meet Monica Velvet and Kim Cattrall as the title character, a former adult film star, now reduced to peel in a small club in Indiana and the fight for custody of her daughter. Sleep with “a few hundreds of kids and everyone turn against you,” he reflects.
Monica is a fully lived-in character. And Cattrall, an actress better than “Sex and the City” often gave space to be, seems committed to destroying puma glamorous program. Gone are the purr substitute Mae West and toned body. Velvet Monica (nee Linda Romanoli) is paunchy, rough and very real mess.
It’s the kind of performance that in a good movie should talk about the awards. Unfortunately “Meet Monica Velvet” is not a good movie.
There is no basis in reality (somehow this city, in the middle of nowhere, not only has a strip club, but a prn shop). His jokes about the prn business are not only weak, but also familiar (the X-rated “Star Wars” The idea was already in “Zack and Miri”).
There is also an undercurrent of here, well, ick. Tobe is a mother of 17 years old and is obsessed with losing his virginity to a woman in her fifties? The whole situation is much more neurotic than ertic. And at the time that Grandpa rough Tobe, played by Brian Dennehy, starts to walk nkd … Well, there are some things that even the old triple X movies tasted too much for show.
