(fr) wrote: The problem with business is that you have to rely on other people. If nobody wants to buy your stock, you don't make any money. The problem with running a funeral home is that your business revolves around people dying. In a small town where everyone knows one another and there are no elderly people thanks to the elderly home being moved closer to the competition's funeral home, you're going to be in trouble. That's the problem that faces Oliver (Jay Baruchel). After his father dies and leaves him the failing business, it's up to the nerdy son to try to get it back together. There are only two other employees working here: A coroner named Roberta (Rose Byrne), and an everyman named Henry (Graham Greene). Apart from the father's funeral, there hasn't been a service in almost a year. In a month's time, there's a good chance the home will be closed for business. All seems bad for the gang. Oliver's thinking of selling the home to his competitor so as to scrape a bit of money from it. After having lunch and dinner with Roberta, he decides to drive home a bit drunk, eventually hitting a man who just happened to be crossing the road in front of the vehicle. An idea hits the duo: Let's snap his neck, make it look like he tripped while walking, and then we'll have the funeral for him. Their plan works, and they make a bit of money. But another character begins to suspect that the death wasn't just a simple trip, so they kill him. Accidentally, of course; these people aren't murderers. We continue this way for most of the time that Just Buried runs. It does get tiresome, although watching the elaborate web of lies and cover-up unfold is quite intriguing. You can feel the tension building. Just when you think the characters have gotten away with it, they'll realize they left another piece of evidence behind, and another person on their trail. But, hey, they finally have some clientele! Maybe the funeral home won't have to be sold! Or maybe they'll go to jail because they'll get caught. I won't spoil how the film ends, but with two cops so close to Roberta's life (her "boyfriend" is the constable to her father's police chief), you know they're going to get involved at some point. This is a film that's going to involve all of its named characters because (1) that's what good films do and (2) if you're a Canadian indie filmmaker and you're paying someone to have a major role, they're going to be important. I hope I haven't made Just Buried sound like a grim film, because it's the opposite. Sure, it has death, corpses, and even an explosion, but the tone of the film is very whimsical. Even in some of the more thrilling scenes, there is a lot of dark comedy mixed in to keep the mood light. I mean, just look at the title: "Just Buried" seems to me to be a play on the term "Just Married." Can you not get that it's a comedy from that? Maybe not. Regardless, within the first five minutes that you begin watching this film, you'll realize it's not taking itself incredibly seriously. So, yes, this is your quirky indie comedy that just so happens to be about murdering people. It's fun, even if it's not terribly unique or surprising (although one twist later on will probably surprise), and it's filled with enough humor to make it worth watching. I liked its sense of humor, I enjoyed the characters, and I had fun even if I can see how some would find it disturbing or depraved. They are killing people just to keep a business going. You know, when you put it that way, it dons on me that Just Buried could be trying to take a shot at corporate business. How they put profit before everything else? How the net gain is more important than worker morale or customer satisfaction? Could it be that Just Buried is actually a much smarter film than it rightly should be? Well, maybe, but it doesn't come across as preachy. Read that much into it if you want to, but it's certainly not going to pound that message into your head. That's nice, as these things can sometimes be annoying, but if that depth is really there (and I'm not certain it is), it means that there's more to absorb not only on the first viewing, but on subsequent ones. A film like this needs two things: A good cast and a solid script. The first is taken care of with Jay Baruchel and Rose Byrne. The former plays another nerdy, socially awkward role, while the latter is sweet, mysterious ... and also possibly insane. Both are endearing for most of their time on-screen. But the script is all over the place. Often funny, but sometimes it isn't at all. It also repeats itself one too many times, and doesn't really expand upon what is quite the final twist. Still, for most of the time it was playing, I either had a smile on my face or I was laughing. I was rarely bored because I liked these characters, and the film is funny enough to keep you laughing -- just as long as your sense of humor is somewhat depraved. It also possibly contains more to think about than you would initially think, making rewatches more enjoyable. I had a good time with Just Buried, and if you like quirky indie comedies, you'll probably enjoy it as well.

The storyline for this picture is very straightforward, but the backyard adventure is fun and unfolds well. The acting is as you'd expect for the genre and includes Rick Moranis, Amy O'Neill, Mark Taylor, Kristine Sutherland, and Matt Frewer."If I was your brother I'd put myself up for adoption.""Yeah, I hope your face end up on a milk carton."I hadn't seen this in a long time and thought it would be a fun film to watch with my daughter when I found it on Showtime Anytime. She was only mildly interested but I thought it was still fun and an above average addition to the genre. I recommend seeing this once with your children."I'm on a new diet...no toxic waste."Grade: C+/B-

(br) wrote: The "saucy" misadventures of four au pairs who arrive in London on the same day in the early 1970s. There's a Swedish girl, a Danish, a German and a Chinese. The story contrives to get the clothes off all of them, involve them in some Carry On-type humour and couple them with various misfits from the British film and TV culture of the time, including Man About the House star Richard O'Sullivan, future Coronation Street rogue Johnny Briggs and horror film stalwart Ferdy Mayne (playing a sheik). There's a pretty risqu amount of female nudity on display, for those who like that kind of thing (but obviously nothing hardcore).Most of the film is pretty thin and inconsequential; the girls are stereotypes, and German Anita especially suffers from some kind of infantalising disorder - she's a moron obsessed with colour TV who acts like a kind of uninhibited child & dresses to deliberately show her private parts; in another more serious film, she would be a psychiatric case. The most interesting section of the film involves the Swedish girl being taken to a club in London where some dodgy types are still trying to swing, being seduced by a middle-aged rocker, losing her virginity and realising that the scene is not for her. These sequences have some energy in them and point to a more intriguing film than we've ended up with, in which promiscuity and the dregs of the music business and upper classes live soulless and seedy lives (there's a fine turn by John Standing as an impotent public school rou). The strangest of the stories has the Chinese girl (future cannibal film veteran Me Me Lay) getting off with her childish piano prodigy employer, falling mutually in love with and then leaving in the middle of the night for no good reason at all, except some orientalist notion that "Chinese birds are inscrutable, ain't they?!" The film is pretty demeaning to its women characters and there's a smattering of homophobia in the dialogue and one of the characterisations. The end is striking, as Mayne's sheik for no earthly reason (except they have to end the film somehow) whisks all of the girls away to his Arab kingdom for what looks to all the world like a future in the white slave trade, which they are all delighted about.Stuff and nonsense for the most part then, but directed with a fair amount of skill by veteran Val Guest, which puts it as a piece of film-making a notch above most of the 70s Brit sexploitation flicks.
