Review: Miss March

The boys directed and co-scripted, so there's no one else to blame.

VIDEO: The trailer for Miss March

Miss March gives us one of cinema's more annoying innocent-plus-crazy-id-best-friend pairings. Played respectively by Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore (from TV's The Whitest Kids U Know), Eugene and Tucker make a zany cross-country jaunt toward the Playboy Mansion in search of the eponymous centerfold — who was Eugene's virginal sweetheart before he banged his head on prom night and went into a four-year coma.

Instigator Trevor drags his bud through a series of screechingly unfunny exploits; once they reach their destination, the meeting with idol Hef (on what's almost a throne) is anti-climactic. Moore seems to equate comedy with continuous eye popping — did he hone his chops watching the Ace Ventura Saturday-morning cartoon?

Cregger mostly just winces. The boys directed and co-scripted, so there's no one else to blame. The only chuckles come when Craig Robinson, playing a rapper named Horsedick-dot-mpeg, is on screen.
