A tale of 2 comedies: Bruno vs Roxanne



讀過zz的影評後,突然很想去看Bruno,因為這類無聊的電影,正是我的喜愛啊!

我曾看過HBO的Ali G, Bruno正是劇中其中一個角色,他是一位由奧地利來的同性戀時裝記者,上一套電影波叔出城,主角Sacha以Borat的角色登場,正是這喜劇的另一角色。Sacha攪笑的手法十分出位,以offense社會上不同的人,甚至乎挑戰觀眾的道德價值為題材,這種大膽的手法,可以說是得罪(甚至是侮辱)人多,稱呼人少。 好不好笑呢,便見人見誌了。

星期天早上在百無聊賴之際,便獨個兒走去看了個早場。老實講,若叫我比70蚊正場價,我覺得唔係太抵,半價呢,ok啦。

當然,The $35 dollars question is, 好唔好笑呢?Bruno的故事其真跟上一套波叔出城有點相似,但真系幾鬼好笑,而故事又真系幾鬼無聊。我認為喜劇不容易拍,能保住一個多鐘沒有冷場,真的是不錯了。不過要留意的是,笑話全部是三級,有部份更有性器具大特寫!我留意到早場觀眾有些大叔大嬸,不知他們入場前是否清楚這是什麼類型的電影呢?

最後也要奉勸一些初拍拖的情侣,若大家仍要去扮純情之類去impress對方的話,這電影應該避之則吉,以免尷尬。(定係我老餅而家唔會care呢d野?)

同一天的晚上hbo竟然播了套陳年舊片,由Steve Martin主演的Roxanne。喜劇來說,這套可以叫經典,其實這套美國的喜劇也是改篇自法國的大鼻子情聖。

Steve Martin現在當然是位天皇巨星,但不知何解,他仍是鐘情演些低b的喜劇角色,例如pink panther 之類,始終未能如Tom Hanks那樣,已轉型成為其他片種的男主角,有點可惜。至於當年的純情玉女Daryl Hannah,始終也沒法大紅大紫,只記得前幾年看她演kill bill的殺手一角,現在只有淪為配角。

Roxanne的故事主要是環繞Steve Martin的消防隊長一角,雖然他滿有才華,但因為有個大鼻子而自卑,面對有好感的美女Daryl Hannah也不敢去追求,而電影的結局當然是有情人終成巻屬。

沒錯Bruno是十分好笑,但步出電影院後便已經把故事置於腦後。重看Roxanne,覺得多年後這套電影仍然有趣,故事亦能感動人心,令觀眾有共鳴,真是歷久不衰。

劇中一幕Steve不滿被直稱大鼻子,在酒吧之中,說出20個方法去取笑大鼻的人(其實他講了25個),可謂是經典中的經典。下面抄了steve的jokes給大家懷愐一下。

我覺得Bruno實在比不上他03年那部Borat咁抵死好笑。我記得我當年從頭大笑到尾。今年睇Bruno,雖然都有笑位(他同人去打獵camping嗰陣)但唔多,而且覺得有抄Little Britain 不過又抄得唔好之嫌。

今天一早起床便立即開電視..八號颱風..GOOD..不用上班..真高興..

雖然費達拿輸波.但可能不用上班的關係..心情都很好呢..哈哈..

Xavier said...

S.P.,

系呀,條橋用得多就變得唔好笑囉.不過英國式的笑料通常系大膽過美國果d.問題系他們口音很"重",例如睇little brittan我就成日唔知佢地講乜. :(

我差不多睇完費達拿便上班去了,今年入到四大的決賽,雖然贏唔到,(我認為他最後犯錯太多).但都算系豐收啦 :)
