You can add "ainous" to anything
and make it magical

Gentlemen Broncos is the third film in Jared Hess' Pathetic People Trilogy. My friend has said that he feels Hess hates his characters. He might not be far off. He definitely enjoys inflicting as much pain on them as possible.

In this case, its a dead bear of a dad, a mom with dreams of $70 ankle length night gowns and the usual kids and adults taking advantage of each other. Oh and Sam Rockwell plays two versions of a fictional character.

The characters are ridiculous. The situations are ludicrous. If you've seen and liked Napoleon Dynamite you could enjoy this. If you liked Nacho Libre then hit yourself in the face. Mole and I agreed that the bad parts are baaaaaad. But there are plenty of laughs to be had as well. But just like his last two films, this will surely split the crowd. I'm glad I saw it. I'm also glad I saw it for free. Proceed with caution but with Sam Rockwell and Jemaine Clement, you know you won't go home empty handed.

Did you enjoy it?
Yes. Laughter was created.

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you rent it?

Would you buy it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
