I’m one of those people who thinks Woody Allen has made enough influential films that he sort of gets a pass for making just as many crappy ones. Still, after enduring Vicky Cristina Barcelona, with it’s “‘let’s not have another turgid discussion about categorical imperatives,” and characters that wrote poetry but refused to publish it “to punish the world for its inability to love,” it took weeks to cleanse my nostrils of the smell of farts (thanks, cocaine). Now, Woody’s back with a similar-sounding film, starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams’ butt, French First Lady Carla Bruni, Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Rachel McAdams’ butt, and Rachel McAdams’ butt.
Today Allen announced the cast of his next film, Midnight in Paris.
The movie is a romantic comedy following a family traveling to the city for business. “The party includes a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey. The film celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.” [CinemaBlend]
Hmm, sounds a little like Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and a lot like The Darjeeling Limited in Paris. Both films are similar in that (*dissmissive wanking motion*) (*glances lovingly back at Rachel McAdams’ butt*) (*actual wanking*). Man, if I find out that’s a butt double, I’ll cry harder than when Old Yeller met the shotgun. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to have another turgid discussion with my wiener about Rachel McAdams’ butt.
