Wow. That's all I'm sayin'. Wow.
Bubba Ho-Tep wasn't the second coming (hell, it wasn't even a liberal in the White House), but it certainly deserves more notice in the popular press than it's been getting. It was a lot of fun, and a lot of ridiculous, and that's always good. When it comes out on DVD, I'll recommend it for the next Us (Not Them) Productions film festival, and it'll probably be rented sometime when my roommates feel like watching a mummy movie featuring Elvis and a black JFK. You have no idea how often that happens.
