“Very Bad Things” (1998)

I’m usually a huge fan of dark comedy, and I’ve always wanted comedies to have more realistic and darker consequences for the character’s idiotic decisions. But it just doesn’t work here. At all. I think part of the problem here is how quickly everyone goes off the deep end. For instance, one character just goes completely nuts and starts murdering people the instant they become a problem. As a result, this film doesn’t feel at all “realistic,” like one would expect. The entire experience just feels nasty, and spiteful, and not in a good way. Add on top of that the fact that absolutely none of the characters are at all likable or sympathetic, and you’ll just leave the film wondering why you bothered.
