too many words by laura lemay

movie snark

I am a fan of nasty movie reviews (see the Phantom review I posted earlier). This Bewitched review from the Village Voice, is short but chock full of snark:

I can tell you this about the new Bewitched: It is an affliction. As if the work of an angry god, the movie collects the perspectives of Nora Ephron (director, co-writer), Delia Ephron (co-writer), and Penny Marshall (producer), coalescing into a showbiz self-suck unrivaled in modern times for smugness, vapidity, and condescension. To spend even 10 minutes in the movie’s universe is to experience the Sartrean nausea of an utterly hollow head and heart.

Whoa. Now that’s bad.
