Disappointing Friday

This is not a good week for movies. Not a good week at all.

So disappointing in fact, I don't really have a desire to write about it.

Only two movies open today in wide release. Steve Carrell's 'Get Smart' remake of the 1960s sitcom and Michael Meyer's 'The Love Guru.' Good lord.

'Get Smart' is getting pretty mediocre reviews. And based on that boring trailer and the rumored kiss between The Rock and Carrell, this movie is not worth seeing. If you care about this movie, you can prepare yourself by reading these reviews.

And...'The Love Guru.' 0% from rottentomato top critics. Not good. This is not good. The most entertaining part of this movie is reading Rafer Guzman rip it to shreds, and explain why if you like the movie, you're a gross 10 year old. Poor form, JT. Poor form, Jessica Alba.

There is hope for next week, a lot of hope:

Poor Anne Hathaway. Poor American public who will have nothing to do this weekend. Poor Mike Meyers whose career has apparently totally devolved into an Adam Sandler-like state. (My only hope for the summer is Batman.)

You ARE pithy! So I did this general scan of your blog. You make me giggle. I also have several comments/questions... Who is Todd? Shouldn't you be more worried about this statement and big brother than your psuedo gambling issues? Also, I liked "Get Smart". Sure it was mediocre, that's why I went. Plus, I think Cindy is funny. You should date her more. Finally, I am eternally grateful that you may vote for Hillary, but there's no way she can win. OBOMA IN '08!

Oops, I meant 'Obama'.
