Tru Loved

Bomb Rating: 

Following in the footsteps of the greatest film critic known to man, Roger Ebert, who wrote his initial review of this movie based on only the first eight minutes (after which, he walked out), I have decided to review the movie "Tru Loved" after having not watched it at all.

Yes, friends, I am simply that talented. In fact, usually I can tell whether a movie is going to be good or bad by simply watching the trailers. For instance, I saw the trailer for that new Angelina Jolie movie recently and I can tell you that, without a doubt, it's going to suck ass. I also heard some rumors that it's too long.

As for "Tru Loved", I just know for a fact that if Roger walked out of it, the film must be a piece of crap. In fact, having seen films with film critics for many, many years, I can tell you that many film critics get up and leave before films end and review them anyway. Locally, I know of a very prominent television critic who doesn't sit through many films. I've discovered that it's very productive and saves me a lot of time if, instead of watching the film, I just watch the film critic. If he leaves before the film ends, I know that the film sucks. If he sits all the way through, I know it must be good.

"Tru Loved" has something to do with lesbian mothers and Bruce Vilanch. So the plot is either "Lesbian mothers adopt Bruce Vilanch" or "Bruce Vilanch discovers lesbian mothers and has a party" or "Bruce Vilanch eats some lesbian mothers". Whatever the plot might be, we can all agree that any one of those is a terrible plot for a movie. Clearly, the director of the movie, Stewart Wade, is a colossal failure of a human being. This is a statement I can make confidently even though I haven't seen the movie. I don't know how much of his time, effort, heart, energy, or money Stewart put into this film, but I can safely conclude that it was all wasted. Nice going, dude.

So, don't go see "Tru Loved". I didn't.

  • Perhaps I don't have as much to say about this movie as some others because, despite my best efforts, I couldn't figure out how it got made.

  • When America revolted against Great Britain all those years ago we declared ourselves free: free of taxation without representation, free of colonialism, free of Shakespeare.

  • Whether it's in a horror film or a teenage sex comedy, one of the more repulsive continuing trends in Hollywood is the development and release of PG-13 movies that should clearly be rated R.

The new Cranky 2.0 actually has more features.  For example you can now edit your post to get rid of mistakes.  There is some kind of time limit to do it, but at least now you can do it.

Wow, problem solved, review the films without seeing them...

TMundo's picture's genious!  No more long drives, no more paying gas money to sit in a theater to watch films you don't like, why didn't you think of this years ago?

On the other hand...

You could see the movie then refuse to write a review of it.  Like Gene Siskel with the Disney comedy A $1,000,000 DUCK and the ultraviolent I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. (They DO have something in common!)

It sounds like you liked Pluto Nash better.  Tru?  Would you rather see Randy Quaid's danglers or a Bruce Vilanch 3-way carpet cleaning?

Another case

Back in 1995, THE NEW YORKER's dance critic Arlene Croce wrote a whole article about why she refused to see or review a certain "victim art" production. (Call it "panning without reviewing.") That isn't a critic, that's a commissar!
