Movies: Bunny and the Bull

When was the last time you laughed out loud during a movie? For me, it was when I was watched "Bunny and the Bull," a comedy directed by Paul King:

The movie's plot is familiar enough. Strait-laced Stephen reminisces about a road trip across Europe that he took with his zany best friend Bunny. Bunny is everything Stephen is not: brash, risk-taking, a ladies' man. Their differences don't hamper their friendship, at least initially; when a waitress named Eloisa accompanies the pair on their journey, however, all bets are off.

I liked "Bunny and the Bull," and nearly died of laughter at this bit where Bunny tries to learn how to become a matador from Eloisa's brother Javier, played by a delightfully insane Noel Fielding (skip to 3:55):

The stylistic touches in "Bunny and the Bull" might not be for everyone (and they honestly don't add much to the film). No matter how you slice it, though, this a funny flick with memorable characters, and well worth a watch.

Rating: 8/10
