(2018) (Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: To compete with a new, state-of-the-art amusement park opening nearby, a daredevil theme park operator devises a collection of unsafe, irresponsible thrill rides.
- D.C. (JOHNNY KNOXVILLE) is an elderly man in 2018 who enjoys spending time with his granddaughter and telling her stories about the good old days when he owned and operated an amusement park. Known as Action Point, the park featured low-tech rides that had little in the way of safeties or restraints -- a stark contrast to the corporate-owned 7 Parks theme park that opened in 1979 and became his direct competition.
Back in the summer of '79, the divorced D.C. was hosting his estranged daughter Boogie (ELEANOR WORTHINGTON-COX) for the season while trying to keep Action Point in business. He had a lot of help, including his best friend Benny (CHRIS PONTIUS), his accountant Rodney (ERIC MANAKA), and numerous eccentric park employees (BRIGETTE LUNDY-PAINE, MICHAEL EVERSON, JOHNNY PEMBERTON, and CONNER McVICKER).
But he also had an adversary in local financier Knoblach (DAN BAKKEDAHL) and his bully son, Travis (MATTHEW PETERSON), who work for the rival theme park and want only for D.C. to fail so they can buy up his land for expansion. The film tells the tale of how D.C., Boogie, and the various Action Point employees pulled out all the stops that summer to try and save their beloved park.
