After a long wait.. Not really worth it.

As a big fan of the TV series I was looking forward to the continued adventures of Alex, Sammy, Thad and the other members of BMS. Now it's always a difficult task to tack on a stand-alone movie to a series (that ended almost 6 years ago), and whilst I admire the fact they took a crack at it, this movie fell well short of my expectations. The biggest problem I have with this movie is the complete lack of sports.. BMS was centered around the exploits of a college football team, and their relationship on and off the field. In Rise of Thadland (ROT) we're treated to one lackluster practice session and that's all she wrote on football. The rest of the movie centers around one completely implausible party (not enough money to save the Goat House yet a party that would make Mr Hefner blush). Speaking of Hefner, early on in the movie they set the tone that ROT has a different rating than the TV series (topless girls galore) but when they have the chance to really push the envelope they hold back. In fact the only full-frontal nudity is supplied by Sammy's character (I'm going out on limb here and say we were privy to Sammy's private parts WAY TOO MUCH!!!) The movie felt flat and disjointed and the use of returning characters Shilo and Radon was nothing short of criminal. No catch ups, reunion scenes just brief semi-cameos. Mmmm time to revisit the TV series and get back that BMS feeling.

The show was really good, the movie just went too far.

As a fan of the show I was expecting more of the same -- low brow humour. With relatively low expectations going in, I have to say the movie exceeded my expectations in how bad it was. The story was over the top. I mean the whole party over football thing is great but I would've liked more football in the movie instead of a ridiculous story-line. Was actually expecting the movie to be about Alex Moran's final season at BMS and not about how the goat house had basically turned into a distopia. The only reason I gave this movie a 2 instead of a 1 is because I was a fan of the show and it was nice to see the characters again. But yeah, this movie just stretched everything too far. That's all I have to say, don't waste your time with it, it may actually ruin the show for you.

I wanted to like this movie.

I really wanted to like this movie, but it just wasn't what I expected after watching the series. I got into the show after it aired and I was happy to see that there was a movie to cap it off. I thought it would be a cherry on top of a sundae, this turned out to be an olive soaked in grenadine. The movie had some funny moments, drug induced hilarity, Thad screaming, and some typical Thad behavior. My issue is with the over the top stuff and the lack of show inspiration. The party was too ridiculous, the show had a lot of partying but it was not to this level. It felt like a stretched out party episode that just went too long. The show had a football centered plot, and this had little to no football. It relied too heavily on Thad and his comedy (while I loved Thad on the show, it is better for him to have limited screen time), and it made the other characters (main characters from the show) fall to the wayside. Alex and Sammy were completely different characters from what they were on the show, and Thad just became dumber. I liked that characters like Donnie and Harmon got more screen time, and it worked, but it felt like they had more time than both Alex and Sammy, who were the main characters on the show. I won't even get into how they ruined Coach and the whole Dean situation. Also taking it away from the original locations took me out of the movie quickly. Not having the actual GOAT HOUSE and the original field was really distracting, especially since they used a bright white house, when the original house was brown. Like I said, I wanted to love this movie like I did the show, I just couldn't enjoy it, mainly because it lost the spirit of Blue Mountain State.
