Fired Up - Review

The last ten years or so have seen the entire comedy genre change. Gone are the witty, intelligent comedies. The comedies that have swooped in to replace those are what I will classify as the “raunch-fest comedies.” These films, which seem to make up an overwhelming majority of adult comedies, are filled with foul language and sexual innuendo. Perversion runs rampant in the new comedies; sick and disgusting and foul. I’m not saying that I don’t enjoy comedies like that, because I do. I guess maybe it’s just my generation, what we were raised to laugh at, or maybe it’s just the progression of the world and popular culture. Maybe it takes progressively more and more shocking situations to make my generation laugh. I don’t know. But we sure have seen these comedies make a meteoric rise to the top of the genre, with films like American Pie, Freddy Got Fingered, Jay and Silent Bob Strike back, Sex Drive, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad, and Zack and Miri make a porno all achieving some level of success and being widely accepted as the new form of comedy.
