Roller-coaster freakshow of John Waters-ish fun
It’s obvious reading the comments here that the people who got this film completely got it and those who didn’t did not understand it at all. I griped about how dumb this looked when it was released (the ad campaign was a joke) and never had any intention of seeing it. But Gylenhaal bowled me over in `The Good Girl,’ so I decided I had to see his other films.
The film’s certainly not for all tastes, but will appeal to people who’ve liked John Waters’ films from the past decade. Yes, it’s politically incorrect. But that’s a big part of the fun! Most of the jokes are delivered with a dry sense of irony (case in point, the guy in the ticket booth). The entire cast gives hilarious performances from Swoosie Kurtz in an outrageous psycho-mother performance to `Working’s Arden Myrin as head-Lorraine, the psycho cult-follower. A big part of the fun is that all of the characters ARE psycho and off-kilter. Much like the TV-series `The Oblongs,’ the psychos in this film aren’t scarred by their shortcomings, they revel in them… Which is why it isn’t offensive unless you’re politically correct and easily offended.
It feels like this movie should have been made 20 years ago. It has a real ’80s feel to it, and the multiple `Land of the Lost’ references (the spoof scene is hysterical) feel about 15 years out of place. There’s no gross-out sexual humor, which is both refreshing and unusual in this post-`There’s Something About Mary’ age of films. It just has a twisted-wholesome 80s sense about it.
My one and only complaint is the running time. At 83 mins, it left me wanting more. Many of the scenes seem choppy, as if big parts of the scenes are missing (Bubble Boy’s confrontation with Dr. Phreak for one). The entire opening sequence seems as if it should have gone on longer, and instead they compensated with voice-overs and musical overdubs to push it forward faster. It wouldn’t bother me if there were a `deleted scenes’ section on the DVD, but like most of Touchstone’s DVD releases, there’s little for extras.
All in all, a great little underrated film!
Quit splitting heirs! This is a fun flick
Why are all these people here moaning about Bubble Boy being offensive? Do they all live in a convent or what? If you think this is offensive and an assault on good taste, you can’t watch anything anymore, lock yourself up and throw away the key. I started watching this film without knowing anything about it and I was pleasantly surprised. Initially, I feared that it would be Disney-flavored sentiment with tons of unnecessary drama and only an occasional laugh. Turns out it’s the other way around! Young talent Jake Gyllenhaal is splendid as the poor boy, born without an immune system and suffering from an exaggeratedly worried and Catholic mother. He’s due to live in a plastic bubble and has to disinfect everything that comes from the outside world. When the yummy girl next door announces she’s soon to be wed at Niagara Falls, he chases her in a portable bubble and encounters all types of society outcasts. He teams up with circus freaks, fights religious sects and gets friendly with Hell’s Angels. If you determine that to be offensive, it’s your loss. I merely consider it a creative and dared new variant on the recent trend of slapstick road-movies. Bubble Boy is fast-paced, light-headed and not at all pretentious. True, there are sequences that are painfully unfunny but you quickly forget about those when a new and cool gimmick is introduced. Gyllenhaal is good, as mentioned before, but the familiar faces in the supportive cast is even better. Danny Trejo as the rebellious (read: romantically hurt) biker and Verne Troyer as the exploitive Dr. Phreak. Bubble Boy features more than enough ingenious findings and spontaneous chuckles to find a place in your memory forever. Lighten up and rent this puppy!
