There's a recurring joke in Miss March where a group of firefighters attempt to kill the two leads like a Horror Villain attempts to kill his damsel in distress. It really doesn't work for many reasons, mainly because showing firefighters acting dumb and insane isn't that funny. But I wondered why because if you do the same for cops, it's very funny. Perhaps we don't know or see enough of firefighters to really make stereotype jokes about them, whereas we see cops all the time to make fun of them. The only time we see Firefighters is when there is real trouble happening, so it's hard to make fun of them when they seem to always be there for society when we really need them.
That kind of sums up Miss March for me. Its concept is interesting, for a teenage comedy interesting kind of way, but this is a film that falls flat because it's original jokes don't work, it's cliché ridden jokes are just too cliché, and the two leads really don't have enough charm to squirm their way out of this complete mess of a film.
I guess Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore are suppose to be this generations Lauren and Hardy of comedy teams. They write, direct and star in their own films/TV shows and try to make the audiences laugh with their differences in looks and overall life values.
There are about 5 laugh out loud moments in Miss March, but we have already laughed at those moments before seeing the film because it's in the movie trailer. And there are no other moments to laugh, so I recommend people to just watch the trailer and save themselves the time and money. The trailer also gives us the entire plot of Miss March too. And they did this because?
Studios need to market these types of films just like Spike Lee did in the 80s with his first film She's Gotta Have It. All Lee did in his trailer is speak with the audience face to screen, used charm and told them why they needed to see this film. There wasn't any clips of the film at all as the star and director (Spike Lee) just performed in the trailer to sell the movie. That's all Cregger and Moore needed to do so when we actually do see the movie, we laugh at all the funny jokes they put in the trailer to promote it – and essentially ruining their own movie by doing so. Go back to what works. That trailer that Spike Lee did made him a star and he made people want to see his film because he teased it by not teasing anything at all.
These films also make me go back to the 80s because successes like Porky's and The Revenge of the Nerds are the reasons why these films are made today. Gross out teenage romps that show a little tit and ass while also making us laugh a whole lot. Movies I grew up on. There was charm in those 80s movies that seem to be lacking today minus films like Superbad and The 40
Year Old Virgin. Just simple concepts that put our main characters on strange journeys. Miss March is just missing something that separates them from the pack.
I do have to admire Cregger and Moore though for doing so much as such a young age. And they did attempt to give the audience a message in Miss March. To treat woman with respect and dignity. Even Hugh Hefner himself (making a 3rd act cameo) tries to tell us that. Even though we really don't buy Hef, we still admire him for trying.
All in all, it's all in the trailer. Another one bites the dust. Another teenage romp movie to come next month.
