The Pest (1997)

THE PEST is best avoided.  Imagine a feature-length impersonation 
of Daffy Duck-- the early Daffy, before Chuck Jones began perscrib-
ing him Ritalin-- and you've nailed John Leguizamo's performance in 
this frantically unfunny update of "The Most Dangerous Game."  Kids 
might enjoy such silliness, I suppose.  There's plenty of potty 
humor-- in the same scene that Leguizamo gets a face-full of vomit, 
another character is blinded by seagull poop-- and the various eth-
nic and racial stereotypes are certainly no worse than what we used 
to see in those old cartoons.  (Rated "PG-13"/85 min.)

Grade: F
