Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Goodbye, Age of Irony: When Bruce Campbell plays Elvis and Ossie Davis plays JFK and the movie takes them seriously, we’re back to cinema that respects its characters and audiences. This movie creates a lot of its humor by building on its absurd situation instead of coasting on it, and there are sufficient horror elements too, but the best element is how deep the themes go, well past the indignity of old age and into the grand illusions of American culture. Except for its overwhelming obsession with penis jokes, this is one of the best, most surprising films of 2003.
