That is an immensely funny review.
Repetitive or not, I could watch Christoph Waltz chew scenery and play the Ike Turner charming sociopath all damn day. Christoph’s sorry, baby, he only beat that elephant’s ass so bad ’cause he loves you so much. Sometimes he just gets so scared.
The point is, there is gratuitous elephant porn. Personally, I could watch elephants squirt liquid and pick things up with their trunks all day (no homo?). Curiously, the elephant never seems to drink water, as you might guess from the title, only whiskey and lemonade. Other times, Rosie the elephant breaks loose and runs through the town until they find her eating cabbage from an Italian stereotype’s fruit stand. “EH, WHAT’S A MATTA FOR YOU! WHO-A GONNA PAY-A FOR-A GUISEPPE’S A-CABBAGE? MAMA, SHE NO MAKE-A THE PIZZA PIE WITHOUT-A THE FRESH A-CABBAGE!” And then everyone laughs and feeds the elephant more whiskey, because everyone loves a mischievous elephant and who cares about that dumb old wop’s fruit anyway? Seriously, if someone made a movie called “ANIMALS STEAL FRUIT FROM ANGRY ITALIAN IMMIGRANTS”, I would watch it for 10 straight hours.
I should read Filmdrunk more.
