What's a jizz-mopper?

Ok, that's it. Someone bring me the head of Ben Affleck. I forgot he was fucking this up for all of us.



Are you fucking kidding me?? Casey Affleck as Patrick Kenzie? No offense, but I just always pictured Patrick with some grit to him, late thirties, a bit weathered, you know? Not FIFTEEN, for fuck's sake. Michelle Monaghan may be fine as Angie, we'll see, even if she is a poor man's Liv Tyler.

Not even Ed Harris and Amy Madigan can save this; so looks to be just another ten cent thriller turd to be flushed down the shitter.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

OH my god. Girl, you just broke my heart.

See, in my head, Patrick Kenzie doesn't mumble. And Angie, she's a hardass, not that teary wussy shit MM was pulling in the preview.

Goddammit. Well, whatever. As long as Lehane's making some good money off of it, I guess I can resign myself to the fact they were bound to fuck it up.

(Seriously, it should have been a miniseries on cable. And they should have oh possibly started at the beginning of the series. Rrr.)

Nice use of the word "shitter". Over here us Brits would say that the "shitter" was the place it came out of before being laid in the bowl.

Alex: I think we should just pretend it's not happening. Works for things in the rest of my life!

Al: That's kind of hard to use in that context, isn't it? "My shitter's sore as a bitch from last night's Mexican food?" I like it though; swear words' versatility is what draws me to them.

There's even rhyming slang for it.. "She takes it up the Gary!"

(explanation ~ Gary Glitter ... Shitter)

I totally laughed out loud. That is soooooo....charming.

I wish we could say things like that over here AND people would get it.
