Miss March


I saw Miss March at a premiere showing at the Bridge Theater in Philadelphia today.  It was laugh-out-loud hilarious!  It features Eugene, a boy inexperienced and intimidated when it comes to sex, and his best friend Tucker, a sex fanatic who is not in the least bit shy about the subject.  Eugene is struck with some misfortune in the beginning of the movie as he drunkenly falls down some stairs, putting himself in a coma immediately before he was about to meet his girlfriend and lose his virginity.  Upon waking up from a coma four years later, he finds out that his high school sweetheart has become a playmate and is "Miss March" of playboy.  As he and his excited buddy Tucker make their journey to the playboy mansion in order to find Eugene's girlfriend, they encounter some rather amusing anomalies.  The movie was filled with frivolous comedy that sent the audience (and myself bursting into laughter. Bizarre situations full of exuberance left the audience unable to guess what would happen next.

After the show there was a Q & A with Zach Cregger (Eugene) and Trevor Moore (Tucker).  They answered questions such as how long they spent filming at the playboy mansion and what that experience was like.  They filmed there for only a day, using Hugh Heffner's room to get the scenes with his character in the movie.  The young boys joked about Heffner's personality and about the number of monkeys he owned, saying that you know you've become rich when you start to lose track of how many monkeys you have.  The next movie they plan on making is intended to revolve around the characters of their current TV show, The Whitest Kids U'Know, which airs on IFC.  From the couple of clips I've seen of the show, it seems to be quite entertaining.  Their jocular personalities and the ingenuity of their work makes me believe these young adults are only just beginning their stardom in the film industry and will be sticking around for some time.
