  1. Wow, indeed.

    However, Mel’s career is such that I am not surprised.

    The shocker here is Jodie Foster.

    A movie about a man who jogs with a beaver puppet? Showers with a beaver puppet? Takes his beaver puppet to work? Makes out with his wife and . . . a beaver puppet?

    You find that strange do you, Doug?

    Some room full of executives approved this. Actually said, “Yep, let’s do a movie about Mel and a beaver puppet.” Grown-ups presumably. People with degrees. People allowed to drive cars.

    People from Hollywood.

    Just sayin’

    I appreciate the fact you chose not to mention that they were probably Democrats to a man.

  5. Actually, this movie looks kinda interesting to me, if nothing else than it’s not a movie that’s been done umpteen million times already. It will be either really good or really bad, depending on how well written it is. If it was a Charlie Kaufman script, for example, it would probably be awesome beyond belief.
