If you found yourself wanting more after binge-watching three seasons of “Blue Mountain State,” you’re in luck. Netflix recently released the full-length BMS movie, “Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland.”
If you haven’t seen BMS, think “Project X” meets “Van Wilder.”
The return of the BMS cast in the full-length movie is exactly what you would expect if you’ve seen the show before. It’s an hour and a half of comedy so stupid you can’t help but laugh at.
The movie tells the tale of starting quarterback Alex Moran and the rest of the Blue Mountain State football team as they fight to save their beloved home, the goat house.
Alex and the rest of the team find that they don’t quite have the financial resources to accomplish their task on their own and therefore have to enlist the help of former BMS football star turned NFL player, Thad Castle.
Thad offers the team his help on one condition; they must throw him the party of his dreams, Thadland.
Thad and his cousin Dickdawg (yes, his cousin’s name is really Dickdawg) are the characters that make this movie.
Though I enjoyed the movie simply because I was a huge fan of the original Blue Mountain State show and was really disappointed when it came to an end, I feel the movie had a lot more potential to it than was included in the film.
I was hoping that the BMS movie would offer a finalized conclusion to the series, as the end of the third season just kind of ended without closing any doors. However, I was disappointed to see the movie left just as many open doors.
On the flip side, maybe an ending like the one in the film means a reboot for the TV show (fingers crossed).
If you were a fan of the BMS show or just have a crude sense of humor, I highly recommend “Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland.”
