|07.05.05||Alamo South Lamar|| OK I can't really say this was good, but i will say that seeing it in a theater with a sold out audience made it more bearable. I think I would definitely like it less if i had to watch it alone and fast forward through commercials or whatever the sci-fi channel does. It had some moments though and gave Bruce a chance to showcase a bit of his great physical comedy stuff, even though it's basically a low-budget schi-fi remake of Steve Martin's All of Me. There were a few genuine laughs (an exploding vespa, a robot death scene, a hilarious rebuff at the mention of marriage) but for the most part it's the kind of thing you'd see on sci-fi channel.|
More entertaining by far was Campbell's Q&A. He went off on all the remakes and sequels and bad, bad movies being pawned off as good nowadays. He did a hilarious Star Wars impersonation, he made fun of the few guys who said "i liked it" and even dismissed Batman Begins because it took five tries to get one right (doing another hilarious impression of Tim Burton being bullied by Jack Nicholson's exuberance to overact). Every one of his answers were quick, witty, and funny as hell. You see a real character there when he's just talking... i wish someone would put him in a romantic comedy lead (or at least the smartass best friend role) or something and show off his charisma. When he signed my book I asked if he'd heard back from any of the celebrities he wrote about in his latest book (in which he gets a job from Mike nichols, tells Renee Zellwegger she needs bigger breasts, and hits up Vegas to get Richard Gere laid) and he basically said "nah, fair use. I mean they're in the public eye so people are gonna talk about them, right? besides, I didn't write them as assholes or big dicks or anything, just myself." Too true.
