Ok, sometimes you just have to get slapped in the face with the proverbial fish to get out of a funk. This month has been rather lacking in films of the OMG variety. There's been some nice films to be sure, but sometimes you aren't in the mood for nice. You want the extreme, you want the crazy, you want a film that will fish slap you silly.
Ladies and gentlemen I give you..... "Detention."
This is just brilliant. The creators must have watched every teen film from "The Breakfast Club," to "Heathers." Then they watched every slasher film, and then topped it off with "The Back to the Future" films. Then I am fairly sure they took more than their share of drugs and probably my share and the state of Kansas' as well. Then after they woke up from their coma they went and made this film.
To talk about the plot really wouldn't convey just how crazed this film is. Let's just say it does involve the following: detention, prom, slasher, explosions, datings dos and don't, and a stuffed time travelling bear. Every film should have one of those. The amazing thing is that they managed to be so original while uprooting whole scenes from other films. You will be watching and you'll just about say "Hey that's from "The Breakfast Club." Before you can finish your thought though you get fish slapped with something just from the left field of absurdia.
Definitely go see this, and bring friends. Bring strangers. Bring strange friends!
