I recently saw Four Christmases. It was good enough that I watched the entire thing, but it was bad enough that if I hadn't been able to pirate the whole thing, I'd be okay with it too.
I also saw Madagascar 2: Return to Africa. Blegh. First of all, I am of the generation that doesn't believe I have to pay for electronic media. We only pay for things we respect and/or want to compliment. I was okay with paying to see The Dark Knight three times in a row. I was okay with buying a Dave Matthews CD. But I am not okay with paying $24.50 for les bebes and I to go to a fucking matinee showing of a movie made up almost entirely of crude unfunny cliches. And it was racist, which is like, the worst thing adjective I can mete out.
However, I do have some good news. Role Models was kick ass. Seriously, it was so hilarious that I didn't start making out with The Skydiver until like 3 quarters of the way through.
Also, Transsiberian was good. Really thrilling. Plus, Ben Kingsley. Need I say more?
In typical NannyGarcia fashion, the movies I've semi-reviewed are not even new, but hopefully I've saved you (or someone you know) a little heartache.
