How Can This Happen?

February 21, 2011 @ 18:05

As part of the Patterson Family Day festivities, we decided to take in a movie. Me and my wife Delyse, my daughter Melanie, her fine husband Josh, my son Danny and his sweet girlfriend Shawna ventured over to Silver City Brampton and for what we thought was going to be a motion picture.

Instead we paid for a big steaming turd.

The movie was called "Just Go With It" and I find the title to extremely ironic, because after this crapola was completed and those guilty of producing it sat in a board room knowing full well how horrid it was, they had to adopt the same attitude.

"It's lousy and bad and embarrassing, but what are we gonna do at this point? Let's just go with it."

If this movie has any redeeming quality it's the thought process it initiates as you wonder how anybody could write this shit, who could produce this shit and how did they not shut it down halfway through when it became frighteningly apparent it was going to smell like shit.

This cinematic excrement also initiated an emotion.

Frustration.

As I sat there waiting for this nine hour movie to end, I thought of all the good, quality scripts that remain on desktops and in drawers and buried under others, never see the light of day because they were written by someone who didn't know the right people.

How sad that because of some contractual obligation between the movie producing elite stuff like this actually gets the OK. How sad that the movie going public has to pay for it before they find out how bad it is. How sad that Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman didn't pool their money to have every frame of this clunker burned.

I'm not going to bother describing the theme or the characters because neither deserves the effort it will take for me to hit the keys on my keyboard, but I will say this. When my supplier downloads the next few movies that I can watch in the comfort of my own home for absolutely nothing, I won't feel nearly as guilty.

After today, Hollywood owes me something.

I just checked it on imdb.com and this is what it says:

"On a weekend trip to Hawaii, a plastic surgeon convinces his loyal assistant to pose as his soon-to-be-divorced wife in order to cover up a careless lie he told to his much-younger girlfriend."

Now, how can that be anything else but crap? Duh!

If you think that's bad try Grown Ups! I've seen a lot of bad movies but Grown Ups is quite possibly the worst "film" I've ever seen.

It's a remake of Cactus Flower, a far superior film with Walter Matthau, Goldie Hawn and Ingrid Bergman.

Adam Sandler should die in a fire...preferably of his own film stock.

My daughter was devastated to hear it beat the Bieber movie at the box office. Go figure.

They make way too many movies.
That's entirely the problem.
They just crank them out for the commerce of it.

Fred, you've never heard of rottentomatoes.com? I know some people say they don't agree with critics and like to decide on a movie's merits on their own, but when only 18% of over 100 professional critics have anything even remotely good to say about "Get a Life" that tells me something. Keep my money in my wallet.

I think the movie was great and I base my assumption on that I read a lot of magazines and newspapers.

But weren't both Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston on Oprah promoting this?

I find it hard to believe that Oprah would support anything sub-par.

re Oprah: hard to have two medium stars on and slag their efforts. Then, other stars will think twice about going on. Soon Oprah would be broke. hmmmmm guess not.

Hi Fred; There certainly is a lot of shit coming out of Hollywood these days. Another smelly one is The Tourist,
with John Depp and Angelina Jolie. Don`t waste your hard earned money.

"This...was merely a two word review which simply read 'shit sandwich'"

Oh, Spinal Tapp... your mid-80's uncomplicated humour continues to resonate well past eleven.
