Sidekick of the Week

This week’s sidekick of the week is a man that brings a lot to the table as a sidekick. He is a good athlete, can’t act very well, and is almost certainly bi sexual…That’s right! It’s Dennis Rodman’s character Yaz in the movie Double Team!

Sorry, wrong Yaz.

For those that aren’t familiar with the dramatic stylings of Dennis Rodman allow me to rock your world. Double Team was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace in the year nineteen hundred and ninety seven and believe me, things have mostly been the same since. Here’s a quick promo that the sudio released to help prepare us for Mr. Rodman’s cherry poppin’ performace on screen.

Whoa. If you thought that the basketball references were extremely shitty and forced than my friend strap yourself in because you just got a small taste of how shitty and forced all of his one liners are for the hour and something run time. Yes, I am aware Dennis Rodman is a basketball player, I do not need him to say “that’s a slam dunk” or something crappy like that seventeen times just to remind me he plays basketball.

This movie is actually not bad, and not nearly as bad as the other movies Dennis Rodman was in. Jean Claude stars and a pre botched plastic surgery Mickey Rourke plays the international terrorist de jour in what is a very cliched but not terrible flick. Check the trailer if you must.

That Dennis Rodman sure is a sassy sidekick, but that is pretty standard amongst action sidekicks, they need a healthy portion of sass to offset to the serious lead. And I wish that voice over guy was still standard for trailers, he really helped me keep track of what was going on in the Double Team trailer, otherwise I would have been totally lost by all the sharp turns this thoughtfully written script takes.

This is not relevant to Double Team but since we were on the subject of Dennis Rodman I thought it would be appropriate.

Still there have been no events or details that are so out of line that they would lead me to believe this isn't Dennis Rodman's actual funeral.
