Unfortunately the commercial doesn't work. It just lies there like a cold tater tot. And the reason is obvious: these thirty something guys look thirty something trying to reprise the bumbling, awkward
nerdy high school kids they once were known for in the movie.
The sad part is they look like old guys who never grew up and really have become the losers they portray in the movie because at thirtysomething they have stopped growing even in their ability to act.
This is a sad case of nostalgia gone off the rails. People grow, people change, even if they don't want to. Of course you see people who try to resist time by dressing and keeping a semblance of the same hair as their high school days when that was the apex of their lives, usually those are the shots you see under the title: The People at Walmart... sad to say. But when you see it reprised here for Burger King it's just pathetic.
What might have been more interesting is to have seen Napoleon now married to Deb and bringing their own kids to try one of Dad's favorites, the cheesy tots. That would be interesting and
cover off a larger target.
Or even the two dads Napoleon and Pedro meeting up with their various broods of kids and doing the same.
However this may appeal to all those thirty somethings still living in their parent's basements.
Sad to see these two mature guys, who haven't had any acting roles of note since, trying to recreate the gawky/geeky/nerdy teenagers they once were in a cult movie is just bad
bad bad....the unique chemistry of then has gone through the cruelty of time now....
