    okay, here is one movie i will not be seeing because it looks really dumb and pointless just bu watching the previews. and the movie is daddy day care. i mean, what the heck is going on with eddie murphy here? man i hate to see good actors do bad movie after bad movie....who is not going to see this movie? i know i'm not...

    the thing about Eddie Murphey is that he's trying to get away from the rude and crude and trying to go into more family oriented films. He has made a bad choice or two, but I think I will give this movie a chance...

    I agree with ya there. Lord, this film looks TERRIBLE. And you are so right, Eddie Murphy is a *darn* good actor who had been consistantly taking horrid roles. I mean, he was stupendous in Bowfinger, why does he have to do such utter CRAP?!

    You know, it's funny about that "Daddy's Day Care" movie...

    I know a guy who had the original "Daddy's Daycare..." His name is Bri'an (pronounced BREE-on), he's black, about the age of Eddie Murphy now, his wife got a great job as a military officer in the USAF (okay, some folks don't think the AF is a good job, but hers was great and, as a major, not bad pay) and they had two small children at home, a little girl, Bri'ana and their newborn son whose name escapes me. So Bri'an decided to stay home and play "Mr. Mom" and then started "A Daddy's Daycare."

    He had a lot of people who loved coming there, including me with my son, but about a year later things didn't work well...

    Seems a guy who had been in the AF (kicked out for some pretty bad things!) slipped past the screening process at the state level and, because his record was in the military and not known locally, he was let in by Social Services as a daycare worker. My son didn't like him right away, and we never went back after that first couple hours that he was alone with all the kids.

    In case you can't guess, the answer is ... yes... he was ...

    But he was caught again (his ex-wife found out where he was working and let the district attorney know about it), kicked out of Bri'an's daycare (which suffered a bit for it for a while, which you can imagine!) and the so-n-so left the state... I only hope he isn't watching kids somewhere else now...

    But hopefully "Daddy Day Care" is funnier and has a happier storyline to it...if it's like what happened at Bri'an's...well, I'll know where the story came from!

    PS Anyone watch the previews of "X-men 2" and "The Hulk" this weekend? Not bad...but don't think I'll spend money unless the kids drag me to X-men, and won't spend money unless the kids drag me, kicking and SCREAMING, to "Hulk." Definitely a DVD movie for me!:p

    Everyone seems to know of the big name comic book movies, but there are a few lesser known books that are finding their way to the big screen.

    Beautiful Killer - AMAZING mini-series. Probably my favorite non-Star Wars comic. Jessica Alba is slated to star as the lead (Brigit Cole), and frankly I think she will screw her character up so bad I shall be whincing in the isles. Lord help me, this film better do the book justice. If you haven't seen the books (which I'm sure most of you non-comic readers haven't), check it out. Even if you don't like comic books, the artwork is spectacular (Phil Noto is the reason I bought the books in the first place...the awesome story is a bonus [unlike HellSpawn, which is not turning out good storywise..:smirk: ]).

    30 Days of Night - Wizard named this mini-series Best of the Year. I haven't gotten my copies yet (as a complete set ran me $65 on eBay with issue 1 being a second print [a first print issue 1 is $40 by itself..]), but I'm sure the art will be awesome. The film will probably be another cheesy vampire flick, but hopefully they'll at least stick to the plot while integrading their hoards of special effects. I'd suggest picking up thr trade paperback if you're interested, as its all 3 books in one right there for ya.

    While we are on the Subject of new films, I am really looking forward to the Runaway Jury that is coming out next year. Though it has been changed a LOT from the book and I can't see how it is going to work...

    I'm surprised he doesn't do 10 10 220 commercials by now...

    I mean, if it were a sequal to a memorable movie that did well at the box office and the sequal sucked, that makes sence...

    but if they make a sequal to a critical, commercial, and ideal flop with "Senor Hasbeena" (aka Van Damme... I'm not getting a job) what were they smoking?

    I mean, are they trying to be the "Producers" and see if they can make the biggest flop of all time?

    I thought he would do 10-10-9-8-7 calls, since they are for overseas now...?

    Anyway, I wanted to ask the panel about the commercials for some of the new movies that are coming out right now. I don't mean just the big summer ones, but movies in general...

    Barring X-men 2, in which I haven't seen one of what I am going to complain about with their commercials yet, I have seen commercials for "Daddy Day Care," "Lizzie McGuire" and even "Bruce Almighty" on my various channels on television (all the time, she said in drawn-out, whining voice).

    And each and every one of them have SOME kind of "bathroom" joke of some kind....(again, long, drawn-out whiny voice).

    "Daddy Day Care": The kid who goes "potty" and misses. Cue the music from "Psycho."

    "Lizzie McGuire:" Lizzie is trying to sing, spins around in the bathroom and proceeds to fall into the bathtub, but amazingly misses all the taps and spigot and doesn't get hurt! I swear, this kid falls down more than someone with two broken legs and no crutches...yet never gets hurt...will wonders never cease...?

    "Bruce Almighty:" Bruce uses "the power" and teaches the dog to urinate (like a human) and sit on the pot when it feels the "urge." Jennifer Anniston walks in on the dog when it is sitting on the pot reading the newspaper, says, "Oh, excuse me," walks back out and closes the door, then shakes her head like she can't believe what she just saw. Believe me, Jen, neither can I...

    Why? Why, why, why, why, WHY??

    Why all the "bathroom" references? Why in each and every movie any more (or does it just SEEM like that)?

    Has "All in the Family" really paved the way for "toilet humor" to be extended so far?

    Did Normal Lear really know what he had on his hands (so to speak) when he first flushed out the comedy of a flushing toliet on air?

    Are we to be subjected to "toilet humor" for the rest of our days?

    These and other questions to be answered in FUTURE MOVIES!
