"Gigli, considered one of the worst movies of the year and an albatross for stars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, tied with Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ as Stupidest Movie. The tie was to be broken by audience members at the Friday night event but the audience couldn't decide which was worse so the tie stayed."

HAH!



Oh yeah.. I forgot: Right Spin in 3.. 2.. 1..
 
2004-07-24 01:50:40 PM
That makes me sad. How could anybody really compare Gigli with the Passion?

Even if you are totaly against christianity - I see absolutly no rational for comparing that crapfest with any other movie.

/even adventures in babysiting.
 
2004-07-24 02:05:58 PM
Well, you gotta admit that Passion had a big problem...

The original script sucked.

Iraq and the conservative right in the United States figured heavily in the awards, which declared Fox's The O'Reilly Factor the Stupidest TV Show and gave Fox News the nod for Media Outlet Which Has Made the Greatest Contribution to Furthering Ignorance Worldwide

Methinks the "Stupidity" awards are really just a cover for ad hominem attacks on certain political and philosophic persuasions.

Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ [tied] as Stupidest Movie.

Change that "Methinks" to "Meknows."
 
2004-07-24 02:14:21 PM
The problem I had with the passion had nothing to do with the religious context, but more about Mel Gibson's "Mooreization" of the story. (read- cheap ways of getting emotions out of your audience)

Gunboat,

I agree that for a comedy festival, these awards are way too political, however, I see a big problem in having LARGE ammounts of people subject to the Iraq War, Fox News and The Passion all within one calendar year.. thats one hell of a mindf*ck.

Everybody who disagrees with me is stupid!
 
2004-07-24 04:19:43 PM
Shouldn't this get the Obvious tag?

Oh, and to anyone who says "but they just say that because of political reasons, blah, blah...". It doesn't make the awards any less true.

Bush won? Stole another one.

Welll I heard Gigli was a crapfest, too. So maybe you can compare.
 
2004-07-24 05:41:15 PM
okay.. they are both fictional movies though right?
 
2004-07-24 06:18:02 PM

Mods, we stand by you and wish you much luck.

How can Canada say that anything on Fox T.V. is the worst or that it promotes ignorance when, in the land of the "not so free" up north are not even allowed to get the Fox News Network?
 
2004-07-25 12:14:09 AM
Fact: Hosted by Lewis Black (lib)
Fact: Bush got higher SAT scores than Kerry (Kerry admits this, but refuses to release scores or grades like bush did)

/just sayin'

Bush beat out pop princess Britney Spears, nominated for saying, "I do," at her brief Las Vegas wedding, and singer Jessica Simpson, who wondered aloud on TV: "Why does Chicken By the Sea taste like tuna? Is it chicken or tuna?"


Irony nazis: is it ironic that they got the brand name of tuna wrong? "Chicken of the sea."

What the hell are you on about?
We get Fox in Canada.

So, Liberal circle-jerks have award shows built around them now?
 
2004-07-25 12:18:42 AM
Calling Bush stupid is like shooting fish in a barrel. Hardly worth mentioning. If anything this guy's surprisingly lucid for someone who drank himself into stupor for 20+ years and had a stint with the devil's dandruff, really.
 
2004-07-25 12:19:46 AM
Passion of the Christ: the snuff film it's ok for Christians to love.
 
2004-07-25 12:19:52 AM
I easily got 200 more points on the SAT than both of them, and I'm sure some Farkers got perfect scores, but many of us still don't have better things to do than post on Fark.

Still, I wish I would have gotten into Yale.

I think that most people, when they refer to Bush as stupid, are speaking more to his lack of common sense than "book-smarts".

He went to Yale (even if it was his legacy's doing). He is smarter than most Americans, not that that means much.
 
2004-07-25 12:20:39 AM
spiffy, indeed.

just noting article was based in canada..... the great white north, take off.....

Have any of you guys even looked up the definition of liberal?
 
2004-07-25 12:21:31 AM
Canada: enjoy your 15 minutes.

Don't say that! The rest of the world already thinks poorly enough of Americans.
 
2004-07-25 12:22:16 AM
Bye - Bye Bushie!

Definition of a liberal? Somebody who would rather not have a definition of patriotism shoved down his throat?
 
2004-07-25 12:22:28 AM
Y'know, sooner or later we're just gonna have to take Canada out.
 
2004-07-25 12:22:30 AM
Is Bush Stupid (pops if you're lucky)

And I agree that Bush is no linguist but that doesn't make him dumb.

Last I heard was that the Fox News Netowrk was denied a licence and Al Jazerra was granted one. I'll stick to that news article. I'll see if I can find it. It wouldn't surprise me if the news article I read is right though, In Canada and liberal America it seems to be Freedom of Religion*

*religion is defined as Islam.

Trying again...

From Canada? 'splains it all. From the country whose Prime Minister's wife flashes her coont about, and whose economy would vanish without the U.S.
 
2004-07-25 12:25:29 AM
C'mon, be honest Bush supporters (heh), Dubya isn't even the smartest in his political family. His father and Jeb Bush are smarter than Dubya by far. To be honest, I think a Jeb Bush presidency would be more interesting than this one.George is just not that bright. All of his business ventures have failed, with the exception of the Texas Rangers.

Wow. That's setting the bar pretty fscking low there.

The reason Dubya got to Yale is that his wealthy and well-connected father went to Yale. Before joining the Skull & Bones he was actually leaning towards a joke frat named "The Gins & Tonics". I kid ye not.

"Why do liberals hate america?"

It can now.

How much smarter than me can he be if A:I can pronounce the word Nuk-Lee-er, not Nuke-U-Ler... and the man who was supposedly elected president... can't?
Fark him.

I believe "liberal" is an old, old wooden ship...

Did the UN get any award for its big "oil for food program" that all ended up in their and Saddam's pockets? Didn't think so. At least they're right on the ball down there in Sudan, preventing yet another genocide. Just kidding.

Does the UN actually have an "offensive" army, or what, because really, what the hell good are all these "resolutions" if they just blow off in the breeze each week?

I don't think Bush Sr. is smarter than Jr. It's just that Junior had the balls to carry out what was needed while his father did not, even though he knew it needed to be done. Bush Jr. does what he thinks is right, Bush Sr. did what he thought he had to do to be reelected, and he screwed it bigtime.
 
2004-07-25 12:29:43 AM
"George is just not that bright", "The reason Dubya got to Yale is that his wealthy and well-connected father went to Yale.". You libs just can't stop the lying. Bush got better grades than Gore, Yale doesn't let in people who won't make the grade, so stop the BS. Your saying it does not make it so.
