  • The Winchester says:

    Devil at least has the greatest tagline for it's inevitable porn spoof: Going down?

  • Bronson says:

    Was that really the tagline? Wow. Talk about game, set, match!
    Seriously though...I knew nothing about this pic other than that it was from the mind of M. Night Shamalamadingdong and it had the guy from 'Garden State' who wants your number. Don't give it to him though...

  • TurdBlossom says:

    Easy A turned out to be a solid B? Ironic.

    I caught a 4:40 showing today in Chicago with a 3/4 full theater - not bad for a Saturday afternoon.
    Jon Hamm was great, he really needs more good film roles. Affleck was ok, he's still a bit distracting as an actor because I never entirely stop seeing him as "Ben Affleck," but he did a great job with the movie.
