This is a new part of the blog wherein I watch random, generally unpopular films of the 90s. Our premier choice: Dutch, starring Al Bundy and a young Ethan Embry (Mark from Empire Records!).
When I first turned this on, I exclaimed to my husband, "It's a John Hughes movie!!" to which he replied "Yeah, from the 90s..." and my expectations dropped a little. Remember Baby's Day Out? I'm trying not to. Essentially the story is that Al Bundy has to pick up his girlfriend's son (Ethan) in Georgia and drive back to Chicago. Hilarity should ensue. I powered through several occasions of wanting desperately to turn it off, and was rewarded with essentially nothing. At least both actors are known for better things, and no one seems to know this movie existed.
Why you should watch this movie: Maybe you've always wanted to see Ed O'Neill bending over with a rip in his pants.
Why you shouldn't watch this movie: It's supposed to be Thanksgiving, yet the movie was released in July. That should be enough of a warning of how bad it is.
My rating: Hated it! I would recommend instead my other movie choice of the weekend: MST3K's Warrior of the Lost World. Sure, it's still a bad movie, but you get some funny commentary to make it more bearable. "Feel the malaise, suckas!!"
