Get Duked!

For the sake of turning their lives around, three misbehaving Scottish teens must attempt a trek across the highlands with a goody-two-shoes in this satirical coming-of-age adventure. Originally titled Boyz in the Wood, the film follows the four young lads as they encounter hip-hop-loving farmers, hallucinogenic rabbit turds, and wealthy sociopaths who want to hunt them for sport.

From the Diary of Wimpy Kid-esque opening titles to a duel with a fork and the results of cutting heroin with chicken soup, this The Hills Have Eyes-meets-Hot Fuzz is a mirth-filled minor masterpiece.

Boyz in the Wood isn’t perfect (there isn’t really a wood in it as such and the title is a bit strained), but there’s likable wackiness and weirdness, one or two sizable laughs and a very bizarre deus ex machina moment.

A taut genre exercise that delivers enough surprises and cleverly timed bits of humor for its sometimes familiar, uneven narrative beats to play an original tune.

Sporadically very funny, always entertaining, tonally, it’s a blend of The League of Gentlemen and Deliverance, but with beatboxing rather than banjos, and considerably more drug use.

Boyz In The Wood is the hippest, wildest, most energetic genre blowout to come from the UK since Attack The Block.

That kind of all-around ineptitude puts the Get Duked! ensemble in the company of such classic Zucker and Abrahams movies as “Airplane” and “The Naked Gun,” and should appeal to lovers of old-fashioned lowbrow farce, provided they’re willing to accept a few lame hip-hop references.

A too-familiar vibe hangs over much of the film, whose comic violence is nothing new and whose banter underwhelms, but the pic gets more fun as it goes, especially after an unlikely hallucinogen makes its entrance.

It’s effectively touching as a display of camaraderie, equally ridiculous, and a great deal of fun.

Doff balances tones amazingly and directs visually striking scenes with gusto and confidence... Then you add this truly outstanding cast who effortlessly embody their characters, and you have nothing short of a masterpiece.
