Brains, the bible and...beer? So goes the strange story of the new to DVD flick "Answer This!" out Jan 10 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The pub review crawl starts below!
Title: "Answer This!"
Grade: 3 1/2
Cast: Christopher Gorham, Evan Jones, Kip Pardue
Director: Christopher Farah
Runtime: 105 minutes
Release Company: Lionsgate
The Flick: Never in a million years would I think a movie about a guy who studies the bible and also has an affinity for competitive bar trivia could be a good mix. But the clever and engaging "Answer This!" just manages to pull it off, partly due to the witty writing ala helmer Christopher Farah and party due to a cool cast including lead man Christopher Gorham. (Plus his chemistry with ‘every woman’ hottie Arielle Kebbel is fantastic!) A simply entertaining film, "Answer This!" does walk a fine line, but thankfully never gets too preachy on the religious side and doesn’t get too raunchy on the boozehound side – the best of both worlds.
Best Feature: With the 'Behind the Scenes' an ass kissing session, 'Deleted Scenes' unmemorable and 'Outtakes' forgettable, I’m going with the 'Commentary' on this one – slightly wooden, but insightful.
Best Hidden Gem: Actor Evan Jones, who plays sports trivia expert and crazed Wildman Izzy ‘Ice’ Dasselway – wacky and inspired!
Worth the Moola: For a comedy about trivia that safely walks in the middle of the road, this one has a lot of the right answers.
