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

Read Time:1 Minute, 51 Second
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.

My bladder thanks you so much!! App works great for telling u when and for how long you have a pee break! I didn’t use the timer function so the dialog in the movie was a great clue as to when to go. I also liked the info about each movie to know whether there was any extra scenes during or after the credits. Nothing worse than waiting for all the credits and then no extra scene.

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+

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
