… as a goof!

Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.

These guys keep it holy by spending Sunday naked, listening to Roberta Flack — That is just some of the wacky fun of The Ten. If you didn’t see it, there’s just one place in the DC area you can go to see it now. Landmark had its final engagement last night. If you did see this without me… die in a fire. 😉 There were 10 vignettes, each themed after one of the Ten Commandments, all tied together by a narrator dealing with his own problems. A doctor kills a patient, as a goof. A convict wants another prisoner’s bitch for his own. Two neighbors try to one up each other by buying the most CAT Scan machines. Oddly enough, it was being heralded as the first time the entire cast of The State was on screen in one movie, but most of the recognizable members took a back seat to bigger names. Still I had a great time, I haven’t been to a movie by myself in a long time and I guess I was accentuating the arty-ness of it all by listening to NPR on my iPod and writing a bit before the previews started. I’ll assume that almost everyone that wanted to has seen it, since there were maybe 8 people in the house. I’ve got to schedule more after work moviegoing.

Remember me getting a free Senseo coffemaker? Well they sent me a link to share with others for a chance to get your own Senseo machine. Part of me thinks there must be some sort of alien conspiracy behind all this, but if you’re interested check it out for yourself. Free pod-person coffee for all!!

    Okay, I’m going to have to try to see this movie next week if it’s still here.

    Let’s see if I get a Senseo as well to take over my kitchen! I will need a coffee maker for my new place…

    I’m sure there were some words in your entry, but I appear to be distracted…

    At the risk of seeming gauche, I have to say that saw the film last night and thought it was absolutely the most tasteless, hackneyed compilation of sophomoric jokes and bad puns ever foisted upon unsuspecting theater dwellers.

    The trailer made the thing look hilarious. In fact, other than that last scenes of the movie, there wasn’t a single thing in it that I found funny, beyond an occasional laugh at how utterly wrong the thing was.

    In short, I hated it. It’s no surprise to me that it was such a limited engagement.

      Well it’s clear that our tastes differ on this one, but I’ve been loving this brand of humor for a long time now since their early days on MTV, “we were between Beavis and Butthead and Aeon Flux!” And our IM conversation today showed our different perspectives on the comedy in the film.
