I recently watched the movie "MacGruber".

Is it bad? Yes. Is it worth the watch? Believe it or not...Yes.

This film isn't going to win any Oscar nominations, nor was it ever trying to.

No, I'm not going to review the movie. I just wanted to give my opinion on these particular movies.

With all the things going on in the world today, watching corny, good natured comedy films is a great escape. One doesn't have to think too much about plot twists and story lines to enjoy these movies.

The bottom line is that movies are for entertainment purposes for the most part and not for extreme detailed analysis.

Mr. And Mrs. John Q. Public and their 2.5 kids know that what most of what they are watching isn't real. They don't need to be reminded that space battle explosions don't occur in space or that there aren't any dinosaurs running around Costa Rica. Let them just enjoy their escape.

Everybody views things differently. If we all listened to critics, then I wonder how a majority of the movies from the past 100 years would have fared.

We all have are own opinions on various things and it's great that we have the freedom to express that. (In this country, anyway.)

Stop telling us that water is wet and that man cannot really fly unassisted.

With all the things going in the world, I think the last thing on every one's mind is the acting performance of a substance abusing non Shakespearean actor/actress in a movie based on the origin of Play-Doh.

Relax, people. They are just movies.

Just sit back and relax. Don't think, just watch.

Unless it's the movie DRAG ME TO HELL. Then, you can just shoot the TV and gouge your eyes out.

Now THAT was a bad film. ;)
