Do nothing

I'd been trying to plan another Do Nothing weekend for a while. Couldn't find a weekend when a few really close friends could go. Settled on this coming weekend as a weekend when at least a few people could go. Now everyone has cancelled.

Fuck it.

I'm going anyway.

No, I'm not even depressed about this being a flop.

I will enjoy a weekend away from everyone. No phones. A few books. Some food. And matches. Cause going out in the woods just ain't complete without fire.

Bruce Almighty

Okay, here's the moral of the movie: Don't treat God as a candy machine, putting a quarter in and getting your gum-ball out. Good, now that we have that out of the way, the movie is funny. Jim Carrey is one of the few comedians who can actually get me to laugh out loud. Although a few of his comic movies have fallen short in that department. But he's back in form for this one. The previews all show the scene where Bruce makes a TV anchor speak gibberish. I knew it was coming, which usually ruins the joke for me. Not this time. I still busted a gut.

Summary: plot/story predictable, moral overbearing, humor excellent.

4 stars (out of 5)
