Movie Review: Blue Mountain State - The Rise of Thadland (2016)
Thad was the linebacker for BMS and not always the easiest to get along with. He does, however, have a big signing bonus and Alex knows that Thad can buy the Goat House and he can continue to party. Thad's one demand is to throw a party. A part of which nobody has ever seen and to call it Thadland. The amount of drugs at this party could have paid for the house multiple times over, but then where would the story of this movie go?
I was a fan of the Blue Mountain State television program as it was nothing to take seriously and each episode made me laugh out loud at least once(except for the final episode, that was awful). This movie was better than the final episode of the TV show but pales in comparison to the series. There's a bit more swearing and definitely more nudity. For those of you that have been wanting to see Sammy's(Chris Romano) penis, you're wish is granted. Plenty of times.
The rest of the cast is there as well. It is pretty cool that they came back to do the film. James Cade as Harmon, Rob Ramsay as Donnie, Frankie Shaw as Mary Jo, Ed Marinaro as Coach Daniels and a couple more surprises.
Overall the movie is a silly comedy and my expectations were low. With that said, I enjoyed it enough to sit through it and chuckle at much of the absurdity. For those of you who miss the show, check it out. If you are not familiar with the television show, there may be some jokes that you may not get but I still feel like you can watch and get the premise.
