I don't see how that has anything to do with Nothing but Trouble. Honestly. Heathers and Nothing but Trouble have basically nothing in common.

Uh, OK. Isn't Nothing But Trouble where Christian Slater convinces a bunch of whitebread suburban idiots to go on a hookers-and-blow bachelor binge, they end up killing one of the hookers, and it spirals out of control from there? More killings, more stupid attempts to hide them, etc.

For me it's a toss up between Troll 2 and Corpse Grinders II. Troll 2 isn't even about trolls and it's not a sequel, they just named it that because Troll had been really popular and they hoped people would see it thinking it was the sequel. It's about goblins who turn people into chlorophyll and then eat them. Corpse Grinders II was about cat people making humans into cat food? I don't really know, I fell asleep.

Nope, Nothing But Trouble had Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase in it. You're thinking of Very Bad Things which was indeed a terrible movie.

Yes, Very Bad Things was my pick a few pages ago. Fortunately, I've managed to forget most of it.

A movie has to be really bad for me not to finish it. I always figure it might get better. This movie I didn't get 20 minutes into it before I turned it off.

OK I got a copy of A Million Ways to Die in the West. It uh...fell off the back of a cyber-truck.

I can't believe Seth Macfarlane is capable of such abysmal failure. Tonight I'll find out.

I liked it, but it really was advertised poorly. They advertised it as if it was an action film instead of a drama. Plus, I think the initial police chase scene was shear brilliance.

Hahaha AMWTDITW is hilarious. I would have had no regrets if I paid to watch that at the theater.

Yeah it's loaded with foul language and nasty jokes. Not a whole lot of poop jokes, but some. The sheep dick scenes are so brief that if you glanced down at your popcorn you could miss them. Jokes are cracked at Christianity a few times.

But if the fact that this is a Seth Macfarlane movie didn't tip you off to that, the R rating should have helped. There are some scenes that are gut-bustingly funny.

I really can't imagine people walking out of the theater at this movie, unless they are very easily offended and had no idea what they were in for.

If you watch it at the theater, don't bother waiting for the after-credits scene, it's 3 seconds long and only worth half a chuckle.

Yes, Drive is clearly not an action film. It's really more of a homage to the old 70 style films (which were pretty slow).

If you want the winner for the most mis-promoted film, that would be The Decedents. Basically advertised as a comedy... uhm yeah, a film about a guy dealing with having to let his wife die, with some infidelity mixed in... yeah. It's actually a very interesting movie from the perspective of the "Island Social / Racial Politics" of Hawaii, and certainly a sad drama, but comedy... NO.
