Sensitive much?

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.

we are the millersI did laugh a lot — often very loudly.

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.

Kathryn HahnPlus, watching Kathryn Hahn — who plays the wife of an RV family the Millers encounter on their journeys — scream bloody murder for a full minute is worth the cost of the ticket.

So ignore the critics like you usually do and laugh a lot.  If you find it offensive…

Well, consider that a bonus.

The ol’ switcheroo

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.

Noah Wyle Falling SkiesNoah Wylie’s character — whose name I don’t know since I have never watched the sci-fi series — was giving a ‘rally the troops’ speech.

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.
