hahahhaaaa. Just, no~ hahhahhaaa
Have you even bothered watching the film?
Hell No!! Fuck No!! Just plain old wrong.
I’ve been skeptical too but am reading some encouraging things about Segel’s work. I’m willing to give it a chance, though I won’t be easily won over.
My issue isn’t really about the casting of Segel or even the work’s quality as a film. I just think the whole thing—no matter how respectful or whatever the film’s tone is—is pretty gross. I’m fine with folks who wanna see it, and I hope they like it. I hope it introduces people to Wallace’s fiction, too. But for me, it’s just gross, foul.
From A.A. Dowd’s glowing review of the film at the AV Club:
That sounds awful to me.
“The casting, too, is crucial. By now, Eisenberg has proven himself more than adept at capturing a full spectrum of neurotics, from the adorkable nice guys to the petty geek tyrants”.
Don’t forget from adorkable geek tyrants to petty nice guys. Wait are James Franco and Seth Rogan in this too? Is it another Freaks and Geeks reunion? How can this be any good? Oh, I know. “The casting, too, is crucial”
