“Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke.” -Steve Martin
I saw We are the Millers this week and did not puke once.
In fact, I am confounded why a majority of movie critics were so harsh toward the comedy.
Perhaps I have seen too many R-rated comedies, but I think the “offensive content” in Millers pales in comparison to The Hangover trilogy or, say, This is the End.
The movie actually supported family values, for cripes sake…albeit in a subversive, round-the-bend way.
So ignore the critics like you usually do and laugh a lot. If you find it offensive…
Well, consider that a bonus.
Sometimes two wrongs do make a right.
Or at the very least, a laugh.
When TNT was switching between commercials tonight, the beginning of a promo for Noah Wyle’s series Falling Skies began and was then quickly covered up by another TNT promo for Hot in Cleveland.
And oddly enough, it worked.
I only heard the very start of it, but he clearly said…
“We must fight.”
Then the network switched to the HIC ladies sitting in a terminal, complaining about the services available at the airport. They were talking about TV viewing, but if you’ve ever spent any time waiting in airports, Noah’s speech made a lot of sense.
