    Tour de Pharmacy

    Wow. Apart from being one of the worst written and acted parodies in the history of mankind, there was almost no imaginable way in which is wasn't offensive. You know it's got to be bad when the Lance Arnstrong vignettes were the funniest parts.

    Have you seen any Lonely Island stuff? I think you went into it with the wrong mindset. Even though it wasn't what I was expecting, most of the movie was hilarious. It seems comedy has been based off offensive stereotypes for years, this movie was no different.

    I'm guessing the white African rider was a jab at Froome?

    I thought it was hilarious. Sure, it's got some stupid things in it (like Lance, even though his bit was funny), and it's absolutely campy, but that was the point. It's 40 minutes long, and the vignettes during the credits were pretty good too. 7 Days in Hell was just as ridiculous.

    I'm sorry. I tried, but I'm not so desperate for mainstream validation that I will call something so poorly crafted funny. This is not our Ricky Bobby moment. There was barely enough content for an end-of-show Saturday Night Live skit.

    I laugh at the roadie and road racing world all of the time- especially anyone who takes The Rules seriously or quotes them. I didn't laugh at all during the entire 40 minutes.

    Truthfully, it would have been more realistic if Paul Kimmage had produced the film with real footage of international cyclists floating off the sign-in podium during the Milk Race or seeing food bags drop off the backs of Russians in the Coors Classic.
