Movie Critic Quote of the Day

"'M giving "Strangers With Candy" one star for every laugh it gave me [zero]. The Amy Sedaris comedy based on the failed TV show isn't the least funny film of the year - but for that it should send a thank-you note to "United 93...' The point of the movie is to take down white trash, but can trash be taken any lower than it already is? Sedaris and crew are doing not satire but manic caricature, trying to bring life to feeble punch lines by screaming them. This movie is worse than flying from JFK to Singapore in the middle seat between two chatty Scientologists. It's worse than do-it-yourself rhinoplasty. It's even worse than college improv."
-Kyle Smith in the New York Post, taking down 'Strangers,' which is easily the worst movie I've seen this year. I guess I just don't get it- it's like the humor was coming from another universe or something. Posted by Stephen Silver at July 7, 2006 01:21 PM
