It wasn’t funny the first time, Tom Cruise

In a pair of new video promos for the MTV Movie Awards (the only awards show in which Kate Hudson gets the respect she deserves), Tom Cruise reprises his role as Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder.  Now, I know a lot of people really liked his cameo in Tropic Thunder. But with all due respect, you people need to take the Retard Bus back to Two and a Half Men Town and stop pretending your opinion is valid.  It’s awful, and the worst thing about it is that the character concept and his makeup (especially the hands) are really funny. But then Tom Cruise has to ruin it by mugging for the camera and beating you over the head with every joke.  And they always show the part where he raps along to Ludacris, which is like a root canal for my eyeballs.  How is this any different than Queen Latifah teaching Steve Martin to act street in Bringing Down the House? Or Sinbad teaching Phil Hartman to act street in Houseguest? Or Karl Rove rapping in whatever circle of hell this was?  Unhip white people rapping has been around for 20 years now. IT’S NEVER FUNNY. NEVER EVER.  FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP ENCOURAGING IT.

Anyway, here’s more of that.  Now stay the hell off my lawn.
