Listen in, listen Ian!
offensive_mango about comedy films, and the fact that in general they just aren't as funny as other things dubbed comedy. I remember hearing Mark Kermode review some comedy thing once, and he said that as he laughed about six times - in 90 minutes! - it succeeded on the comedy front, which is pretty poor really. If I watched a half hour comedy on the telly and only laughed twice, I'd write it off as a dead loss.I was complaining the other day to |
So, I was pretty dead set against comedy films in the 'things that aren't a waste of time' league table, but tonight I finally got round to watching Little Miss Sunshine, and joy of joys it was actually properly funny. I laughed a lot, and not just little bits of laughing, big laughs. it was excellent.
Other excellent things tonight included the omelette I made for my tea, with some of the Swedish sausage I got at IKEA, and peas and cheese. And toast.
So, that's one of the outstanding DVDs to watch ticked off. Ooh, only about, erm, loads to go.
