  2. I think a mess is the point.

  3. Nicole Kidman looks great. Like a younger Lindsay Lohan.

  5. Kidman is using a similar accent and sleeping with a much younger man, which reminds of her role in To Die For.

    I'd watch this TV so that I could leave the room every time McConaughy came on screen.

  6. Zac has such a flat pancake azz.

  7. That looks like one epic white trash disaster- but the lovely Mr Efron was born to be a movie star.

  8. These video game adaptation movies are always terrible.

  11. I'd love to know the context of the "Little Shop of Horrors" moment without having to necessarily see the movie.

    I *kind of* like Nicole Kidman, but I usually spend my time picking apart her American accent when I see films with her in them. Perhaps it won't be so bad with the southern touch?

    @ERIC - Well played

    @Paul - At least you know. :P

  12. This the movie that's getting all this hype because it has a scene of Nicole peeing on Zac.

    They should have gotten R. Kelly to do the soundtrack.

  13. You have to love Nicole's Granny Panties at 1:34...sure it's a turn on! LOL!

  14. Although I'm hardly as old as the late Gore Vidal, you know you're from an older crowd when all of these silly little emoticons you all use in your comments are inscrutable to me. Sort of like the internet version of pig Latin. Now you young ones will have to look up the meaning of pig Latin.

  15. This movie seems all over the place and the preview doesn't help. Reckon the budget was tiny for this movie so it should make a profit at least.

    BTW, this isn't a video game adaptation. According to wikipedia, it's based on the novel, the paperboy.

  16. See pre-Precious "Shadowboxer" for a key to how hot a mess this will be!

  17. @Sam
    Alex was joking. Of course it helps to be above a certain age to get the joke.

  18. Wow, Zac can dance...!!! I bet you could bounce a quarter off his a$$...!!!

  19. Damn U Contrarian!!! hahaha i did search pig Latin..

    Posted by: frank | Aug 2, 2012 12:29:08 PM

  20. McConaughey plays a gay character here and his BDSM sex gone wrong near the end should be, um, interesting, if nothing else..

  21. Jack had studied pig Latin to the point that he thought he could easily take a vacation there.

  22. John Cusack watched a little too much of Robert Mitchum in Cape Fear for his performance. Matthew McConaughey seems to be playing the same role he's played in every movie except Contact. And whoever cut the trailer needs to figure out what the movie is actually about.

    Lukewarm mess, at best.
