Quote of the Week (Honorary Mention)


"Doesn't this sound like a movie that would be on a show like Extras? As in, it's such a ridiculously lazy and insulting idea to turn A Christmas Carol into a romantic comedy starring Matthew McConaughey that it could only be broached on a vicious satire about Hollywood's brainless cynicism. And yet, no. It's really happening."

-- Culture writer Mark Blankenship, on the latest sure-to-suck McConaughey rom-com Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

You think this is bad? How about in 20 years when they remake Ghosts of Girlfriends.

Just got an email today from a bunch of old high school girlfriends wanting to see this and go out to eat. I said I would meet them at the restaurant but I have a vow never to see a Matthew McConaughey movie, sorry!

My initial thought was that the only thing that could make this concept worse was if Dane Cook was starring as one of the ghosts.

And then I thought about Dane Cook being ghosted ... and I got this nice warm fuzzy feeling inside that made everything better.

P.S. Nice Chris Rock reference, Anon 12:55.

I wonder how they'll fit "Tiny Tim" into this.

I don't know HOW they'll fit him in but given Hollywood's idea of hilarious irony, he'll be played by Usain Bolt.
