United Passions (FIFA financed film D: Auburtin S: Roth, Neill, Depardieu)

Talk about bad timing, this being released amid the FIFA scandal. Apparently this was mostly financed by FIFA. The loud thud you heard this past weekend was the movie opening to a whopping $607.

United Passions starring Gerard Derpado? Sounds sexy.

At least the reviews are entertaining...

"One of the most unwatchable films in recent memory, a dishonest bit of corporate-suite sanitizing that's no good even for laughs." - New York Times

"Comes across as a squirm-inducing heap of propaganda at its most self-congratulatory." - Los Angeles Times

"Tedious, amateurish and hilariously ill-timed ..." - New York Post

"United Passions is the unintentionally funniest movie of 2015." - Uproxx

"Deceptive, disgraceful and deplorable..." - SSG Syndicate

Looks hilarious. Love the overly dramatic trailer.

So this is FIFA's Battlefield Earth?

You know, they actually offered me a bribe to go see it.
