Film review snark

The following is from a real review published in a real newspaper:

Advisory: This movie contains comic violence and scenes of hip-hop country dancing. Members of all of the world's religions need to immediately set aside their differences, and collectively pray that this doesn't become a trend. --- San Francisco Chronicle

-- Badtux the Amused Penguin

Who, being properly forewarned, is not going to see 'Hannah Montana: The Movie', heh!


  1. Heh...

    The sooner they all start prayin' the better. We've got way too much redneck hillbilly shit already.

  2. I'm praying that the kid doesn't decide that she wants to see this for her birthday. Fortunately, she doesn't seem too interested but that's not going to stop me from praying. :)

  3. Three words: Hip-hop country dancing. What *were* they thinking?! I mean, c'mon. I wrote a country hip-hop-rap song back in the early 90's ("Muh hound dog died" thump thumpa thump thump "Muh pickup truck got rust" thump thumpa thump thump "My woman left me for the mailman" thumpa thump thump thump) but look, that was as a *joke*, I wasn't, like, *serious* about it, or trying to get people to pay money to *hear* it or anything!

    Sigh. My opinion of the taste of the Hollywood star-makers gets lower every year.

  4. Our niece just turned 12, and we were legitimately afraid that she would want to drag us to the Hannah Montana monstrosity. However, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the tyke's listening tastes tend to run more towards Queens of the Stone Age.

    Never underestimate the power of good genes.
