The Pest (1997)
USA / English
"What kind of freakazoid would let someone hunt him just to collect $50,000? Next question.
"A Miami con man agrees to be the human target for a Neo-Nazi manhunter, in order to collect $50,000 if he survives.
Hints of genius few and far in between.
Obviously this didn't win any awards for excellency, but it wasn't that
horrible of a movie either. It showed bits and pieces of comedic genius
mixed in with lowbrow and downright idiotic slapstick. Could this be a
deeper and uncomfortable view into the twisted mind of Leguizamo (who must
have been on a diet of sugar and caffeine throughout the filming of The
Pest)? For what it's worth, about 20 minutes into the movie I wanted to
kill his character, Pest. Hopefully that's what the writer intended... It
was worth the $1.50 I paid for it, but it wouldn't last 1 second against
true comedic genius like Pee Wee's Big Adventure.
