THE MOVIES: NO RELIEF IN SIGHT

I have been checking out the movie ads on Letterman tonight and all I have to say is there is no relief in sight at the movie theatres for the theatre owners OR the patrons. The studios must be all finished releasing their quality productions for the year, based on what's coming soon to a theatre near you.

This week, it's Rob Schneider in Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo, the sequel to the first one. And coming next week, another surefire lame-o movie: The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

Isn't it bad when you know a movie is a turkey just by hearing the title? Really, whose idea was this?!

What a choice: see this stuff or see The Dukes of Hazzard. You're better off going to a baseball or football game, because there's NOTHING at the theatres.

(UPDATE: The 40-Year-Old Virgin might not be so bad after all: Roeper and Ebert gave it two thumbs up. I'm not kidding, I watched their show.)
