Jason Lee must be stopped
Laura and I went to see Ratatouille this afternoon, and one of the previews before the movie was for a live-action dog movie about a beagle, or some other kind of hound dog, that gains super powers through some sort of lab accident. All at once the horror of what I was seeing struck me: Some miserable so-and-so has crapped all over Underdog and put it on screen. I think I would rather go with Laura to see Becoming Jane and actually watch it than be subjected to this pile of pants.
But voicing the lead character in this crime against humanity wasn’t bad enough for Jason Lee. No, he just had to go and star in this abomination.
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with us? We take the things we loved as children, turn them into utter garbage and hand them to our kids, and then we wonder why they think we’re all idiots. This isn’t “retro” — it’s “detro.”
