With every Thanksgiving comes food, family, and sitting on your ass watching at least a crappy movie or two. This Thanksgiving, unfortunately, wasn’t any different.
The Swimming Pool:
It took a good 85-90 minutes to finally figure out what this movie was about, and the damn thing is only 102 minutes long! I still don’t fully get it. Lots of French, lots of gratuitous boob, and absolutely no plot. So in those terms, I guess it was a "good" French film.
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan:
I haven’t seen this much dick since Stiff Competition. This movie had some incredibly funny parts with some cleverly great editing to get the "right bits" of Americana. But for some reason, it just didn’t gel. Borat is good in small doses like in Da Ali G Show. But 2 hours of Borat not make the great success.
