had its moments
22 April 2011 | by movieman1947See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to this short, and it wasn't a total let down, but let just say I was hoping for more.

The star studded cast made one think that there was going to be a lot more going on than there was, and the jokes fell flat most of the time.

This short starring Danny McBride, Elijah Wood, and Seth Rogen as the younger beastie boys, have a dance off with their older selfs. The older or possibly present day beastie boys are portrayed by Will Ferrel, John C Rielly, and Jack Black.

The short is broken up in between sessions of mayhem, and rapping while walking down the street and raising hell towards all passerby's. There are brief periods of improvising, but it runs a little too long, and gets stale fast.

The direction was pretty neat, and the added musical sequences were also an impressive touch.

Unless you are a hardcore bestir boy fan, or are just interested in seeing which celebrity you can spot in this 30 min short I think you can do without it.

looking forward to the new album though!
