Public Service Announcement...

This has nothing to do with cooking light.. this has has nothing to do with food at all, BUT...


Okay ... if the urge ever strikes you to see The Happening with Mark Wahlberg.. find yourself a buzzin' bee hive.. then stick your hand in it and grab some bees.. don't worry about the stinging, the pain will go away eventually.. next, take that handful of live bees and start eating them. Truly, your experience will be much more pleasant that sitting through that gawd awful fucking movie. I feel like writing Wahlberg and demanding my $6.25 back (personally delivered to me wearing nothing but his Calvins, of course)


M. Night Shyamalang-a-ding-dong needs to hang it up. OHMYGOD I am TRAUMATIZED. I have seen many a bad movie.. but this one takes the cake.

To put it into perspective - The Happening is WORSE than THE VILLAGE.

*hold me*

Hee hee! Good PSA Lis. I hope it spares some people the trauma of wasting their money.

Ohhhhh but it's my other man :)
Cr@p....! I won't even be able to sit through it with the sound off then!!

My husband and son went last week and thought it was terrible with really bad acting. I went shopping and bought a cook book. Much more sensible.

Barbara.. har! YOU are a very smart woman! Wahlberg isn't the finest actor out there, but he does a decent job in many movies.. but this one.. its like he signed the contract and realized the huge mistake he had just made, then just went through the motions of acting - POORLY. He was Dirk Diggler all over again, sans the porno flicks and the drugs.

I am going to forgive him for this.. we all make mistakes.. but M. Night Shamawhatever needs to be kicked out of Hollywood ASAP.


PS - please pass my condolences on to your hubby and son. ;)

It wasn't on my list of movies to see but I'm glad you've ensured I won't see it. How does some of this crap get made?

I am crying I am laughing so hard right now!!! We left the Village yelling out the spoiler to everyone in line, saying SAVE YOUR MONEY!! So we decided to skip this one, but I looked it up on line and...yikes...Hollywood owes you 2 hours of your life back- but seriously, HILARIOUS post!

Shamalama-ding-dong!!!! LOL! I love it. Good Charlotte I was laughing so hard when I read that.
Too funny.
But I agree with you, Shamalama ding-dong's stuff bites. I have never seen why his stuff gets such high reviews.
The only thing halfway decent of Walhbergs' is his writing on HBO's show Entourage.

Thanks for the tip! I wasn't planning to see it but if someone suggests it I'll dig in my heels!

Oh Lis, come now, we are all more than aware that you did not go to see this film for the screenplay! And you ask, how do we know....gratuitous 2nd photo of Mr. W. Ummm, Mr W.? W?? Is there something about someone you have failed to divulge??

Well, if you can't get your $6.25 back from Mr W. maybe you can get him to bath in all the honey from the bees!!!!!

Thanks for the warning. I hated the village too!

Don't hold back girl! Tell us how you really feel! LOL


Blogger Camille said ... (6/24/2008 9:06 AM) : 

I think more reviews should be this blatantly honest.


Blogger Caribbean Dreamer said ... (6/25/2008 12:40 PM) : 

LOL! This is the 2nd blogpost that I've read today that said the same thing.

Oh man... the boy wants so desperately to see it, and that's such a rare occasion that I know I'm going to get dragged to it.

Crap >_<

Ok, I have to say it. I *enjoyed* "The Happening."

The idea behind the sucides is smart and unique -- weeks later, I still look at trees warily, and I can't watch my neighbor use his riding mower without discomfort -- and the cinematography was beautiful. I thought it was a really creepy, suspensful movie.

Having said that, a lot (most...) of the acting was wooden. And, if I had to pay $10 or more to see it (which is what it costs to see a film in most major cities) I might feel differently.

But for $6.50, I was entertained and creeped the f**k out by this film. I liked it.

But we can still be friends, right Lis? ;)

I actually found things about the Village enjoyable, it was Lady in the Water that made me start to grimace at the sound of M. Night's name. Good lord that was an awful movie. I figured this would be an even lover step
