So I watched Get Him to the Greek the other night. It really wasn’t that funny at all. Just another movie where people get really fucked up and do random stuff. I find movies like that are only funny when I’m drunk, after I’ve already had my fun. They always strike me as “Why don’t you just go out and get drunk yourself.” I figure I could go have a night with 1/2 the shenanigans of a “drinking movie”, and with none of the drama.
In another point, why do most new comedies have so much drama? I want to watch a comedy to laugh and have a good time. I don’t need contemplative reflections on the loneliness of being a rockstar. You make tons of money to get wasted all the time. If that’s so terrible, find a new job. They’re always looking for McDonalds employees.
I figure I’ll just go direct my own movie, and document some of the things we do while drunk. It will include such activities as “Drawing moustaches on the drunkest kids” and “Singing 80’s rock/pop songs as loud as we possibly can.”
Apparently there’s a market for it.
