I Still Know What
You Did Last Summer

A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:36 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
So, I go to see "I Still Know What You Did a Couple of Summer's Ago," um, I mean, "I Know what You Did To Me Last Summer, you Bitch, but I'm Not Dead Yet," um, I mean "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer," and there is nothing that can add to a bad horror movie like a bunch of fifteen year olds in an R-rated film. Their inclusion helped to keep the film at least a little more entertaining than the film would have been sitting there in silence.

The story is like this: The crazy killer with the hook, Ben, isn't dead, and he's back to torment Julie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Ray (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), and our new cast consisting of kooky college kids and resort leftovers. You've got Karla (Brandy) who is the biggest tease, and I'm surprised her over-the-top "I'm a bad-ass" boyfriend, Tyrell (Mekhi Phifer) puts up with her not putting out for so long. You've also got Will (Matthew Settle) who seems smitten with Julie, but Julie still loves Ray. Then you've got a bunch of no-name resort workers who will end up dead. The problem with this film is that there really isn't a story line other than the crazy killer wants to kill Julie. There's one little twist, which if you couldn't figure it out in the first half an hour, well, you are not well-versed in your horror film surprises.

Everyone ends up on a Bahamas resort island when Karla gives the wrong answer for a radio station prize, with no way off because tourist season has ended and a storm hits. So, it's just the kooky college kids, the staff, and our killer, Ben, to spend some fun nights together.

Did I jump during the movie? Yes, I must admit, once, when the killer dog jumped at Tyrell. Why, because for one time in the movie they didn't foreshadow an attack with the spooky, scary music. Did I laugh or chuckle? Plenty, like when Julie is trapped on the tanning bed, which has been turned up to the "no ozone layer" tan, and locked by Ben, while her friends keep trying to break her free rather than turning it off first. I also chuckled when Brandy is stuck on a glass roof and decides the way off is to step on the glass portion. Surprise, surprise, she crashes through the roof. And I also chuckled at the movie's ending, nicely setting up "I Vaguely Remember What You Did a Few Summer's Ago, but I've Still Got This Hook and Need to Kill People."

I don't know, I mean the dudette who was sitting a few chairs down from me sure seemed scared so it did some kind of job, but there have been so many better horror films before that "ISKWYDLS" seemed more laughable than scary.

I'll give the movie 2 stars out of 5, I guess only from the fun comments of the 15 year olds and the dudette a couple of seats down who seemed scared out of her wits. Other than that, I kinda just wondered why our bright college students didn't check The Weather Channel before they took their trip. At least then they would have known it was supposed to rain.

That's it for this review, I'm The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!
