Plot:
After an earthquake hit Los Angeles, its inhabitants are curiously changed, but most of them have adjusted to the new ways of life now. The protagonists of the four different segments in the film are survivors after all.

The best thing about Kuso is that I fell asleep a couple of times, so I was spared some of it. Other than that the film was a simple and absolutely disgusting waste of time.

Plot:
Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) is trying his best to lead a good and successful life, but success won’t come and his family is slowly drifting apart. He decides that the perfect antidote to that would be to take them all on a trip. To Wally World, where he spent a vacation when he was a child. His wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and his two sons James and Kevin (Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins) are less convinced that a road trip would be such a great idea, but they decide to go along with it anyway. As soon as they set off, though, Murphy’s Law comes into effect and everything that can wrong, does.

I had actually no intention of seeing this film as I thought that it wouldn’t be my cup of tea at all. (I think I saw the original when I was a kid, but I don’t know whether I ever saw any of the sequels.) But then my sister and nephew went and asked if I wanted to come along and I agreed. The film may still not be my cup of tea, but I didn’t find it as horrible as I thought I’d find it. And my nephew and sister had a blast.

Tim (Tim Heidecker) and Eric (Eric Wareheim) just threw out a billion dollars to make one scene of a crappy movie. And their producer Tommy Schlaaang (Robert Loggia) now wants the money back. So Tim and Eric jump at Damien Weebs’ (Will Ferrell) offer to run his shopping center for a billion dollars, never questioning the job’s or the payment’s validity. And the mall is in quite a state. As are Tim and Eric.

I did not expect that I would like this film, and I was spot on with my expectations. It really wasn’t my cup of tea.
