I’ve been waiting to see Snakes on a Plane for about a year now, and you know what? It was totally worth it. It was terrible in that really great way. Everything that everyone has told you is true. Go with an MST3King group. There are callbacks already. Huzzah! (PS Todd Louiso’s snake expert character made me explode with love. Yay.)
I deleted several emails about pass opportunities for Trust the Man because the title was terrible. It sounded like some sort of vaguely urban thing that I wasn’t at all interested in, but then curiousity got the better of me and I pulled it up on the IMDb. It turned out to be a romance thingy from the writer/director of The Myth of Fingerprints (which was overrated) but I thought hey, it’s free, and the cast was full of people I dig.
David Duchovny was great in it, the dialogue was snappy, but the ending was pure cheese, and the more I think about it the more problems I have with it, beginning with the title and ending with my feminist soapbox. Billy Crudup’s character’s an asshole, which is fine with me because I think -he’s- an ass himself. Maggie Gyllenhaal’s character should have run off with Ellen Barkin when she had the chance.
Skip it, and rent some Woody Allen instead. Any Woody. Even bad Woody.
