Tired and sad comedy
1 June 2016 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

During his heyday, I was never a big fan of Pauly Shore. If you want to know why, just watch him for five minutes or so and you'll get an answer. All the same, Shore managed to build something of a following during the 1990s when he was making movies, so it was a little mysterious when Shore suddenly stopped making movies and almost totally disappeared from the public eye. So much so, that I didn't even hear of "Whiskey Business" when it was first released a few years ago. But recently it played on a movie channel up here in Canada, and I wanted to see how Shore had progressed (or not) during his virtual silence.

If Shore or any of his business handlers thought he'd make a comeback with this movie, they were sadly mistaken. In the years that passed, Shore has become very weathered. He looks tired and old (he has grey in his hair!), and his attempts to bring the energy he admittedly brought to his old movies seem to be beyond his abilities now. Though not all of the movie's failure lie with Shore. The script is lame, with very predictable and familiar story elements. And the direction is extremely passionless, with no energy (comic or otherwise) apparent. Toss in some really cheap production values, and the end results have absolutely no interest or entertainment for even those who worked on the movie. You'll need several shots of the title drink to be able to sit through the entire enterprise.
