Awful and Unfunny Parody of Forrest Gump

Agamenon Pereira Mendes is a fictional character of a column in Rio de Janeiro's newspaper. Years ago, the first three or four articles were very funny, but sooner the character was exhausted and the jokes and puns repeated over and over again.

"As Aventuras de Agamenon, o Reporter" is the story of Agamenon Pereira Mendes in an awful and unfunny parody of Forrest Gump. Maybe the most impressive is that I did not laugh with any of the offensive and stupid jokes. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "As Aventuras de Agamenon, o Reporter" ("The Adventures of Agamenon, the Reporter")

Awful comedy, interesting movie

The movie was made by a Brazilian comedy group, Casseta & Planeta. They made huge success back in '80 and early 90, but since later '90 they're labeled as unfunny. And they're really old-fashioned, in a bad sense: many fart and gay jokes show that.

However, Agamenon movie surprised me in a good way. I didn't really laughed as you may expect on a comedy, but I found out many jokes very interesting. It's not simply a popular comedy movie - it's a tentative to make a popular-and-cult comedy. They failed to do the comedy - but I've appreciated their efforts to make original jokes which requires knowledge from a variety of themes, mainly (but not only) from Brazilian culture (like Sebastião Salgado' photographs) and politics.

In the end, it wasn't a good movie - most of all, it wasn't a good comedy. But it was a good experience - it showed something that I've never saw on Brazilian comedies: jokes that require a considerable amount of culture to you get. For the comedy, I'd gave it a 1, for the creativity, I'd gave it a 7. Overall, 4,
