Saw this one last weekend. It was half-funny.

The other half was full of jokes that weren't funny because they tried too hard. Or else they weren't jokes at all. And it should be noted that I am a sucker for long bursts of random cussing - if you don't laugh at swearing, then your funny/not funny ratio will decrease sharply.

I also didn't think that Rock Me Sexy Jesus was nearly as funny as the advertising was trying to claim it was, and I thought there was way too much Michael Scott in the drama teacher.

This all makes it sound like I thought it sucked, which is not fair. It wasn't the best movie I'd ever seen or anything, but I had an enjoyable time at the cinema. Mildly recommended, or something.

I tend to agree. It had a few laughs, mostly on the back of the great Steve Coogan, but it wasn't anything special.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

Idol Gives Back! I’d like to give Idol back, am I right? Sorry. That was really terrible. I can already tell tonight’s going to be awesome because everybody is dressed as the stripper version of themselves. Talk about giving back!
