Kabluey (2007). 1h 26m | PG-13

“I had really thought great slapstick comedy was a lost art, one that Iu0026#39;d have to go to DVDu0026#39;s of Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd to experience. Then I saw u0026quot;Kabluey.u0026quot; For the first half of the film I was laughing my head off, not only at the sheer outrageousness of it all but also at Scott Prendergastu0026#39;s brilliance at building gag on top of gag, making you laugh harder at each one until by the end of his u0026quot;stacku0026quot; youu0026#39;re literally screaming with joy. The second half slowed down a little but also proved that Prendergast could do pathos, and the ending is as heartbreaking as anything by Chaplin. Thereu0026#39;ve been a few comedians in the modern era who showed they COULD have ranked with the stars of the past (Robin Williams, Jim Carrey), but Williams got stuck into too many overstuffed vehicles and Carrey seems to have been penalized by his audience every time he tried to reach beyond fart humor. Letu0026#39;s hope Scott Prendergast keeps making simple, unpretentious and utterly hilarious movies like this.”
