“Miss March”
20th Century Fox/The Jacobson Company
At Quality 16 and Showcase

.5 out of 5 stars

Even when considering how regrettably low the standards of comedy have fallen in recent years, it is rare to find a comedy in which all (or nearly all) of the humor is the unintentional result of bad acting. But “Miss March” is just such a disaster, as it unsuccessfully attempts to elicit laughter by the most horrifically offensive means possible.

The film was written and directed by Trevor Moore and Zach Cregger (“The Whitest Kids U’ Know”). The plot follows a teenager named Eugene (Cregger) who, by a wacky turn of events, slips into a coma for four years. When he wakes up, he discovers his former girlfriend Cindi (Raquel Alessi, “Summerhood”) has left him and ascended the ranks of Playboy fame. He then proceeds to go on a cross country trip with his lifelong friend Tucker (Moore) to win her affections a second time.

Perhaps the most painful aspect of the film is Moore’s wholly unfunny portrayal of the typical “best bud” character. His method of comic delivery involves nothing more than a bug-eyed reaction to all of his surroundings, coupled with a faux-effeminate vocal inflection that’s far more annoying than it is humorous.

A $10 share in General Motor’s failing stock is a more viably profitable investment than the $10 it would cost to see this movie in theaters.
