This past weekend I watched State of Play starring Russell Crowe and the actor formerly known as Ben Affleck. The pathetic “newspapers still matter” propaganda really distracted from an otherwise decent thriller. But that is a post for another day. It is what happened before the film that really got to me.
I saw the trailer for the (or “a”) new movie by Judd Apatow called Funny People. It did not look funny. If you haven’t seen the trailer, and you have even a passing knowledge of the Apatow-ization of recent comedies, you can surely imagine what the trailer was like.
