It pains me to rip on Rolling Stone movie critic Peter Travers, because at one point he was probably my favorite critic. But somewhere around 2007-2008 he seems to have completely lost his mind (not that I blame him, decades of inhaling every sh*t balloon Hollywood fills will do that to a person). His propensity to repeat himself has already been well documented (“it sneaks up and floors you“), but even by Travers standards, this seems particularly egregious.
The 500 Days of Summer quote isn’t great, but taken on its own merits I might give it a pass. But what f*cking planet do you have to be from to call Eternal Sunshine “a smart, sexy, and seriously funny comedy?” That’s something your aunt would say about a Kate Hudson movie.
