Yoga Hosers received a lot of hate from critics (Entertainment Weekly named it one of the worst 5 movies of the year). Critics will likely never agree with Kevin Smith, but his fans know to expect that. Yoga Hosers is one of the movies I’ve been most excited for this year, and I wasn’t remotely disappointed.
The movie is about two Canadian fifteen-and-a-half year old best friends, both named Colleen, who rock out in their band, Glamthrax, accompanied by a tattooed Adam Brody, work at the convenience store Eh-2-Zed (which embarrassingly took me half of the movie until it clicked that that’s ‘A-Z’ in ‘Canadian.’), and practice yoga, with Justin Long playing a different character in the same universe as Tusk.
The girls use the uniquely named yoga moves (dissatisfied customer, two-legged dog in a push cart, etc) to fight off Bratzis, which are –yep you guess it – Nazi bratwursts.
There’s a lot of familiar faces and a ton of Canadian stereotypes (pronunciation, love of hockey, etc).
It’s a lot of fun and exactly the type of movie that I would have been obsessed with in high school. It’s obviously a weird little story, but that’s the point. This is something that I would only recommend on a person-to-person basis. If you’re one of the weirdos I was friends with who loved Heathers, Rocky Horror, and The Meaning of Life, yes. But if you’re someone who hated my recommendation of The Final Girls, no.
