There are movies that really stick with you through the years even if in retrospect they weren't any good. One of those movies for me is Point Break. I'm talking about the original not the crappy 2015 remake. Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze eat more scenery than Godzilla. The tale of a gang of bank robbing surfers and special agent Johnny Utah is a classic of cheese. But I'll be damned if I don't watch it whenever it comes on. At this point I can recite the lines I know it so well. It kind of makes someone want to go surfing and join the FBI. But then you get sleepy and forget. This parody video sums up the movie in 4 minutes with the help of some of the guys from Reno 911 and Human Giant. Ben Garant is Patrick Swayze and Thomas Lennon is one of his cronies. Aziz Ansari plays Johnny Utah, which is pretty perfect casting.
One thing is for sure, this parody is less of a joke than the remake from last year.
