Movie Review – The Beach Bum – A Bum Deal (If You’re Not Actually High)

Movie Review - The Beach Bum
Beaches, boobies, blunts, and a white cat. Also, a foot.

I’m still trying to figure out if any plot happened in this pet project by Matthew McConaughey, but now fully understand why most theaters didn’t play it. Beach Bum is an hour and a half of watching someone else’s party. There are huge doobies and naked boobies, and I guess that’s enough for sitting back yourself with a lit blunt and melding into the stream of smoke, sex, and sunsets.

The best scene has sharks, a foot, and a hat, and I won’t spoil that further for any amount of weed. Ask anyone what happened in Beach Bum and this is the part they’ll remember.

Everything else is a haze.

Is this a cautionary tale? Someone’s dream drug life to drool over?

I liked the white kitty.

I’m giving Beach Bum the benefit of the doubt by a plus symbol on my D grade, because if you loved The Dude (something I missed seeing while growing up), then you might consider it a sort of sequel. I heard someone in the theater say that, and I know The Dude is beloved. Don’t expect much philosophy here. But Jimmy Buffet appears, and I’ve always been a Parrothead. Yet I still can’t make myself give this anything close to a C. D+ it is.

For what it’s worth: to see a legit funny movie showcasing a good time of men partying, just rewatch The Hang Over again.

I really have to stop reviewing Beach Bum before I talk myself into dropping the letter grade. If you loved Beach Bum, I’m ready to be educated. Yell at me in the comments below. 🙂

Grade: D+

This app is the best wingman for a movie goer, especially when you have to go. It even has a vibrating timer that is spot on for those ‘go times’ some of us need! There are many other features that are wonderful. It even lets you know when the kill scenes are coming up for the people and animals for those who may have sensitivities to that type of content. The staff go above and beyond!

About The Peetimes: This was a easy movie to make Peetimes for, as it’s a series of party scenes, loosely connected by plot. I added 2 good Peetimes tonight, and might add an earlier one tomorrow.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Beach Bum. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Rated (R) for pervasive drug and alcohol use, language throughout, nudity and some strong sexual content
Genres: Comedy
