User Review

Where did the humor go?

Rating:

"Balls to the Wall" was exactly what I had expected it to be; a rather mediocre comedy. Now, I say mediocre because this movie is conflicted by two main issues. First, there is very little comedy in the movie (that will make me laugh), so that was a disappointment. On the upside, however, was the storyline. It was a brilliant storyline and well executed.

The cast in "Balls to the Wall" was pretty good. Despite not being familiar with the lead actor (Joe Hursley), he did a good job with this role and character. And towards the end, at the male exotic dance contest there were some pretty good look-alike people at the judging table. That was fun to see.

The story is fairly good. Ben Camelino is going to marry his love Rachel Matthews (played by Jenna Dewan-Tatum). But the father in-law (played by Christopher McDonald) doesn't have the required money, and turns of events leads Ben to end up as an exotic dancer, dancing for money. It is a sweet story, but it could have been spiced up with more humor and awkward situations.

"Balls to the Wall" is good a single viewing, but it doesn't have enough punch or value to make you want to watch it a second time around. It is good for a single evening of entertainment, just don't except to be wiping tears away from your cheeks from laughing so hard, because the movie is lacking humor!
