I’ve got another post up over at Sprocket Ink today. It’s about one of my favorite things to do at night, in bed, with the Lady Friend. You guessed it, sleep. Hey, I said ONE of my favorite things. Go check it out!
I wrote a post last fall about shitty movies. Specifically shitty movies that are supposed to be funny. There seems to be a whole hell of a lot of them in the last couple years. And now I have to add a new one to the list. Cyrus.
I vaguely remembered this being in the theater but honestly didn’t remember anything about it, who was in it, what it was about, etc. But when the Lady Friend said it was coming from Netflix and told me who it was in it I thought that’s cool – should be worth watching. No. Fuck no. Do not waste your time on this. The movie was not funny. It was not dramatic. It was just bad. We watched the first 30 minutes or so, then fast forwarded to the end just to see what happened – although even that was a waste of time.
The movie has a couple moments that are slightly uncomfortable by intention, which could have been funny had they been written differently, but instead they just come across as uncomfortably bad. I have actually written a few funny screenplays myself that will probably never make it to the big screen. And this DOES get made? Ugh.
After this waste of time, Get Him To The Greek and the very unfunny movie Funny People, I am seriously starting to question Jonah Hill’s common sense. I know he is a funny guy. We was good in Super Bad and Knocked Up. He was even decent in that Night At The Museum sequel. But man does he make some horrible choices. Could it be just about the money? I don’t know. But someone needs to advise him on his script choices and get him back into a funny movie soon or people are going to turn on him.
As it stands, with the time I have wasted, I think he owes me something… I’m just saying.
Yes, you heard me right, you’re actually going to hear from the Lady Friend. She does indeed exist!!
