The Chosen One (Video 2010). 1h 41m | PG-13

“Paul (Schneider) has lost his wife, is about to lose his job and tries to do himself in when he is visited by strange people from Colombia, South America who have anointed him as The Chosen One.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf One is going direct Oneself in a movie, Oneu0026#39;s name should be Clint Eastwood. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSchneider helped write, produce and direct himself in this barely watchable movie. One rule of radio is needed here: Let not DEAD AIR rule the airways. Here the acting was tentative by Schneider as though he was concentrating too much on watching himself direct and watching himself act all at the same time, and the result was too much hesitation when that wasnu0026#39;t called for. Yes, his character was going through some stuff, but the hesitations were like a football player consistently fumbling the ball. Doesnu0026#39;t look good. This is not the Rob Schneider I thought I would see. He needs to go back to Adam Sandler and beg for a job.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is not a comedy, not a drama and is more of an outline of I donu0026#39;t know what in the sense: u0026quot;letu0026#39;s see how this might gou0026quot; , or u0026quot;letu0026#39;s try thisu0026quot; and staying with those bonehead ideas. I saw where it could have been a comedy, but…………u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe questions I had and Paul never asked in the beginning when he was told he was the Chosen One was: Why Me? followed up by: what do I have to do? And what am I supposed to do. Okay, he did ask why me? but didnu0026#39;t ask the other questions. No, we had to suffer through the movie to find out what he had to do to earn the title. Fair enough, but I still would have asked those other questions. Come on, tell me I am the Chosen One and you will hear the questions. Thought so. Am not, right? Thought so. Hmmmm……….u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo later he climbs a tall building to put a hawku0026#39;s nest back. But, when the hawku0026#39;s nest was first removed, someone from the window above the nest quickly snatched up the nest. Why didnu0026#39;t Paul use that same window to put the nest back? Not much excitement in opening a window and plopping down the nest, is there? If a door or a way was blocked to do that, it should have been shown. It wasnu0026#39;t. He ended up climbing. Of course, we all wondered if he would fall.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJohn Schneider also helped produce this. I thought they may be brothers but cannot find that to be the case. But, that may not be the same John Schneider (Dukes of Hazard, Smallville) I am thinking of. Hey, I just learned there is another Christopher Lloyd (helps write for Modern Family TV show), and not the Back to the Future and Taxi guy. Hard to keep your eye on the ball these days. Reminds me of a story where almost everyone was named James Bond. Yes, they all said, u0026quot;Bond, James Bond.u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eViolence: No. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Not really, mild stuff and not much of it.”
