Nearly nonexistent humor ruins what could have been a fun parody
When I first started this movie I had high hopes. The first five
minutes seemed quite funny with Samuel L. Jackson's narration and the
promising all-star cast. I assumed the reason few people liked this was
because it had a sort of "stupid" sense of humor as seen in movies like
Kung Pow that few people appreciated. Unfortunately, even with so many
big names in this movie, it was difficult to find any humor at all in
The majority of the movie revolved around Bob Saget and Lewis Black's
characters chatting back and forth about walking far and finding a
mate. What made the movie bad wasn't its juvenile sense of humor, but
rather the lack of overall jokes. What was shown was simply Bob Saget
reenacting his job as host of America's Funniest Home Videos when he
used to provide voiceovers to the five second clips in order to make
them only slightly more amusing. But considering there isn't much
amusing about penguins in the first place, Saget couldn't do much to
make it funnier than the thoughts everyone with any sense of humor
whatsoever was thinking while watching March of the Penguins.
I'll admit that the horrid editing didn't make me dislike the movie as
much as the humor, but it is definitely worth mentioning that it had to
have been done by someone with no real experience in the editing field.
For example, when one penguin farts in the movie, a large transparent
red circle appears near it. I don't know what the editor was trying to
do to make the fart more visible by using a red circle. Had they added
in something like a green colored gas effect, it would have been more
appealing. Another example is how some of the clips blatantly reverse
themselves to stay on screen while the actors talk. Very little effort
was put into this movie, though considering how little the makers had
to do (Nearly all the footage was cheap stock footage), they must have
made a fortune by spending so little money on this.
The reason I didn't give this a score of 1 was because I'll admit that
I did laugh a few times, and I appreciate that the movie recognized
itself as a bad movie, like when penguins from the March of the
Penguins scoff at how dumb the humor is, when the writers are depicted
as a monkey banging on a typewriter, and when Samuel L. Jackson
apologizes for not having the budget to make the penguins' mouths move.
Still, I would not recommend this movie to anyone, regardless of their
sense of humor..

Funny cool awesome helarious.
not for all tastes(lots of very vulgar language)
i didn't like this movie at all.i think it's supposed to be a parody of
March of the Penguins.but for me,it just wasn't funny.plus,i felt the
humour consisted of mostly vulgar,crude language.there's a lot of the
F-bomb(among other words) dropped here.this definitely isn't for
kids.but i also just found it boring.i actually couldn't watch it
all,because i found it too slow.as for the crude language,that doesn't
always bother me,but i just found it gratuitous and too frequent.i
don't think you always need to have swears to make things funny.it's
not for every taste,that's for sure.if you don't mind a lot of very
crude language,you might want to check this one out.for me,Farce of the
Penguins is a 1/10.
