Eric balfour is in this? Not surprising.
**THERE** – first line correction
I feel personally satisfied because I steadfastly kept suggesting this movie every time their were nominations.
The book, although far from perfect, did include some emotion and character narrative that seemed genuine. The movie just seemed to be a parade of the bizarre moments like “LOOK! ANOTHER CRAZY SCENE! ISN’T THIS STORY CRAZY?” to the point where it actually became boring. Like, at the end, Gwyneth paltrow’s character cooked the pet catfor dinner, and by then the viewer didn’t even give a shit.
And the whole thing about his relationship with the older man? Um, rape much? It wasn’t presented as an actual, life-altering experience, but yet another WEIRD SCENE.* The most infuriating part was, at the end, for the “what happened to the characters” part, Augusten Burroughs, the author himself, appears alonside the Augusten actor. Like, he couldn’t stand NOT being in the movie.
Also: fuck Ryan Murphy.
*Joseph Fiennes, despite being a fantastic actor, seems to choose the shittiest projects ever. it went downhill since Shakespeare in Love. Enemy at the Gates, The Darwin Awards, that soft-core with Heather Graham, The Very Thought of You…
For the love of everything holy, please do any of the following:
Running With Scissors
House of the Dead
John Tucker Must Die
New York Minute
Just My Luck
And why hasn’t SHOWGIRLS been done? It’s like running a John Heder film festival and not showing Napolean Dynamite.
And MISS CONCEPTION: Heather Graham, with a British accent, is the head of a construction company learns she may be infertile. So she goes on a rampant sexual assaulting spree to get knocked up. All under the guise of a rom-com. WITH A HORRIBLE PUN FOR A TITLE
Running With Scissors? Anyone? Anyone?
Wertrew, can I hire you to do my Videogum PR to get “John Tucker Must Die” nominated?
