I find Chump Change to be really sad on a lot of accounts. It is obvious that Burrows is in love with Wisconsin, but instead of denying the cheesehead image, he really overly embraces it.
For me, the problem I had with the film was the joke overload. Some of the jokes could've been very funny, but he crammed them all together so close.
Part of me feels bad that Miramax screwed him over, but at the same time, how the fuck this film ever got picked up by Miramax is beyond me.
This film will stay in my collection for one reason, though. The shot of the outdoor drive-in movie theater. That was the 41 Twin, which was located about 3 miles from my house. It's where I saw the majority of new movies, always going to double features with my parents and sisters. I believe it was 2 years ago that they tore the theater down, but thanks to a crappy movie called Chump Change, a snow-covered 41 Twin is presented on film that I can cherish and show my children years from now.
