#348: Who Peed on Her Popcorn?

April 16, 2009

Notes from the Manager

The movie they're watching is Observe and Report, starring Seth Rogen. Here's the full clip that the scene in the strip is from:

(If the embedded player doesn't work, click over to Spike to see the clip.)

It's not a laugh-out-loud clip, but the movie itself is peppered with very funny scenes and a disconcertingly bleak story that builds up to an absolutely hilarious ending. It is, however, just about as dark as dark comedy gets. If Bad Santa was just too sweet and cheerful for you, then you'll love the shit out of Observe & Report!

Joe, Tom and myself discussed the movie at length during this week's Triple Feature, but the short version of the podcast is this: Tom didn't see it, Joe loved it, and I thought an absolutely brilliant payoff in the last several scenes elevated a really good movie to a great movie — but I think I would've enjoyed it a little more if the R-rated trailer hadn't given away too much of the best scenes from early in the film. When it's out on DVD, it's definitely something I'll want to revisit, though.

Today, I said goodbye to my best friend and my uncredited assistant since Multiplex began. As you may know from previous posts here, he has had some health issues for a while, and… well, the short version is, a new infection (compounded by his other issues) raised the question of the quality of his life. We had a good eighteen years.

Good night, sweet boy. I’ll miss you.

Multiplex is taking a short break.

UPDATE: Multiplex will start updating again on 2/12.
