Wow… I have a whole slew of stinkers for you. These are films that I saw this weekend while putting together three different podcasts, cleaning the house, and various other household tasks.
Lets start things off with the movie playing right now on my satellite – Boogeyman with Barry Watson and Emily Deschanel. Luckily, I didn’t spend any money to watch this fresh-plucked specimen. As the name implies, this is a film best flicked off the end of your finger and forgotten. The only reasons I haven’t changed the channel are because the remote is on the other side of the room, and I am a fan of the uber-hot Deschanel.
It was playing as a result of the Starz Free-View Weekend!! You know – there are sometimes when free is too much to pay.
RATING 2 out of 10
Next up is another film courtesy of the Starz giveaway… Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. I actually liked the first one, so I thought maybe – just maybe, this one would hold some entertainment value. Okay, I guess it did hold “some” value. It just was a shadow of the original (who’dathunk you could make the original look good?)
Its funny because I had the opportunity to see it free back when it first hit theatres and I passed… looks like my instincts were right.
RATING 5 out of 10
The third and final film in this entry is Hitch – another certified stinker that I avoided when in first run. The good news is that with these three movies I saved at least $24 on tickets and another $30+ on drinks/popcorn etc. by waiting. I guess there was something good in them after all. Oh wait, I almost forgot to tell you what I didn’t like about Hitch… I mean Will Smith, I like – Kevin James, I like – Eva Mendes, uh yeah, me likes – so what’s the deal?
The deal is that it was written by a three-year old child of a burned-out Hollywood producer. Okay, I can’t verify that – but it seems like it was written by the kid the retards made fun of in school. Again, my apologies for any perceived slight toward the mentally handicapped.
The cast however, did make it watchable.
