Opening this weekend:
Hot Tub Machine
Say what you will, nothing I’ve seen has done anything to diminish my enthusiasm for this movie based on the title alone. And after this review, I’m pretty much sold. I’m just glad I don’t have any stupid kids running around so I don’t have to see…

Ferris Buellers and whatnot. What I’m trying to say is, I’m sick of the sad, bitter, loser character in every f*cking movie now. Oh, you’re poor and unathletic and you’re a wimpy kid with a diary who loves Beth Cooper? Maybe if you shrug harder and feel sorry for yourself and act like a wounded prick, the world will just come around and you’ll be great some day. What. Does that not apply here?

I demand satisfaction.
UPDATE: Two more Birdemic showings have been added.
