​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

FLOCK OF DUDES (2016)

Just screened #132, Flock of Dudes. This had every earmark of an awful grossout comedy at first as we see Chris D'Elia and his three friends, who live together, acting horribly obnoxious, going to bars every night and generally going nowhere fast. One day, Chris realizes after an especially crappy night that they have to "break up" and do something with their lives. His brother David (Skyler Astin) draws up papers giving them six months to have nothing to do with each other... until they can see each other again. If they don't play along - there are consequences (no more fantasy football for starters). Sounds simplistic but thanks to a good performance by D'Elia and less of the three friends on screen (Brent Gelman, Bryan Greenberg and Eric Andre) as well as some funny bits, Flock of Dudes is more entertaining (if predictable) than one would think. Timothy Simons is hysterical as Butler, the ex-high school classmate you don't ever want to run into. Odd cameos by Ray Liotta (weird) and Jeffrey Ross (even weirder) round this one out. Oh yes and a non-weird, amusing cameo by Mario Lopez as - Mario Lopez! Opens in theaters and on ITunes this Friday.
