Damnit! OMG. We're sick of seeing your Iraq war movies. Does anyone even care about that little war? It's ancient history. You are stupid. You suck. Guff. I'm so sick of this heavy handed hippy shit.

I'm still waiting for my anti-liberal escapistic Iraq picture, maybe staring Paul Walker or Sean William Scott as a POW who befriends a young boy and a camel, breaks away, shoots the shit out of brown people, encounter Bin Laden and Ahmadinejad, blow their brains out in the name of Christianity, returns to the USA and unifies the nation with his story. At the end, smelly hippies and fat and old people cry and hug and shit. Are you listening, Fox?

...

Anyways, this looks like a pretty good flick. I'm a big, welly, sobby baby when any amount of measurable emotion is brought on screen. So this will probably be one of those constant-edge-of-tears flicks for me. Unfortunately I dont' have HBO. So I'll probably just watch it some day when I'm looking for something to rent.

For some reason, I thought of Grand Theft Parsons as soon as I saw the synopsis. It was hardly a memorable movie.

Didn't Bruce Willis already kill Bin Laden or am I mistaken?
