Anybody who saw "The Happening" would probably agree with me that it's a TRAVESTY that it didn't get nominated for every category. I will never again see a movie one-tenth as bad as this one. And I LOVE Mark Wahlberg.
I thought this movie was at least better than "Lady in the Water"
Delgo clearly should've taken a page from the Simpsons' marketing playbook.
Commercial: Delgo, Delgo, Delgo! Bart: What's Delgo, dad? Homer: I dunno. Some guy....some guy called Delgo.
Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death!
I realize the critics pretty thoroughly savaged 88 Minutes, but everyone in my family liked it and so have the vast majority of my Blockbuster customers, so how it could be nominated for worst actor for Pacino and worst actress for Sobieski is beyond me. How dare they put Leelee on there, for crying out loud.

"Marriage is like that show ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, but it’s not funny. All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."
Ed Asner as Ed Wuncler Sr. makes it hard to appreciate him as Uncle Ben but thanks for the tip about the show. I've been looking for a version to show the rugrat that was more accurate to the Spiderman of my era.
