Painful, unfunny, vulgar, predictable...and those are the good comments
on January 11, 2012
How films like these gain such a devoted following is, quite simply, unfathomable to me. Why talented, heralded actors like Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro choose to make films like this is even more unfathomable - Ishtar was Citizen Kane compared to either of these excreble excuses for entertainment. I saw both of these on the recommendation of people I'm close to; it's clear that, though I love them both dearly, their taste in movies and mine are very, very different. I haven't laughed so little since I saw Camille Claudel - but that won't mean much to most of you. Oh, well.
