SacriliciousBeerSwiller: What amazes me is how entertained people are by a guy who makes up 95% of the shiat he writes (the stuff only works if you think it's true).

Yeah, that Mark Twain guy was a hack!

Mark Twain wrote stuff that only worked if you thought it was true?

Are you telling me that Huck Finn was MADE UP???

WTF? Next you're going to say that there was no slavery so there was no slave named Jim!

Democratic Secularist Omnivore: Weird, I thought Drew might be a good person. But good people wouldnt associate with Tucker Max.

It has been foretold.

King Wicker: What's this Jon Stewart incident that people keep referencing? I completely missed this.



I think either they are confusing him with Tucker Carlson (the bowtie wearing asshole) by accident or on purpose as an attempt at humor.

I was browsing the rottentomatoes reviews, found this gem.

May be the first film from the perspective of a Van Wilder villain and by the time this vile, amateurish and supposed true story is over, you may feel as if you've just spent 100 minutes looking through Michael Myers' first mask.

and

Here's the thing about Tucker Max: He's a child. A toddler. A three-year-old screaming, "Poopie, poopie, POOPIE!" at the top of his lungs in the middle of the supermarket in the hopes of getting a reaction out of his embarrassed mother. You know how three-year-olds are -- they learn a word is naughty because the first time they use it, the adults gasp, and so now that word is good for getting a reaction out of adults who are otherwise ignoring him.

The best reaction to such behavior is this: Nothing. Ignore him. If you react, you only reinforce the bad behavior, and the child learns that temper tantrums and acting out are good for making himself the center of attention. Ignore him, and he'll quickly learn to behave himself. Someday he may even be a respectable, reasonable grownup.

The other possibility with Max is that he is a sociopath, someone with no conscience and no empathy. But unless and until he starts torturing kittens, the best thing is simply to pay him no heed whatsoever.

It was called ASS. And that was all it was. For 90 minutes. It won 8 Oscars that year.

tallguywithglasseson: Psumek: Diablo Cody has wit? I must be the only person that thought Juno was horrible.

In addition to being all over the regular press junket, she, uh, got her start, I guess, stripping and working the peep-show/jerk-off booths at Sex World in Minneapolis. So she was all over everything local, too - news, radio, print. She was actually witty in interviews, and though, like you, I found her script contrived and cringe-worthy, there was a smattering of wit as well.

The one interview I remember was on MPR/NPR. She sneezed and then said, "sorry, I must be allergic to high-brow radio", which I thought was funny. She actually seemed likeable and, yes, witty. She did say at one point, if people attributed all her success to her having been a stripper it was "illogical and stupid", or something to that effect. And I thought, "yeah... maybe not all, I mean you had to write a book and stuff, but... just how many screenwriters go around being interviewed with the press junket for their movie?"


The only reason anybody was paying any attention to the screenwriter in this case was because 1) she's a moderately attractive female (whereas the vast majority of Hollywood screenwriters are fat, balding dudes who wear sweatpants just about everywhere), and 2) because of all the buzz about her having worked as a goddamn stripper.

I got tired real quick of hearing the whole "oooh, she's a stripper-turned-writer who now has a movie out!" thing like it was some rags-to-riches story. She wasn't a stripper-turned-writer; she was a writer first and foremost who decided to become a stripper for a year (oooh, way to get deep into the life; that's not even long enough to develop a decent coke habit and/or lesbian relationship like all the other strippers), probably thinking the entire time "Wow, this would be a good subject for a book", which is how she got her actual professional debut. Just because she's covered in tattoos doesn't make me think she's seen some dark underbelly of Minneapolis or that she's in any way "indie".

/Anybody interested in some really good writing from within (and about) the sex industry, I'd suggest either Magic Gardens by Viva Las Vegas, or my personal fave, Pornclerk.com, a blog created by Kristine Levine, a "lifer" in the adult store clerk industry and one of the funniest women I've read.

No, it just means she's seen guys jerk off in front of her for money.

Sleeveen: ROFLWAFFLE: JohnBigBootay: VRaptor117: FAIL. In Tucker's production blog on the release of the trailer, he specifically stated that they intentionally left good stuff out of the trailer because they hate when movies spoil all of the good scenes by putting them in a trailer.

How did you fall for that one? That's what known as utter bullshiat. The reason they put the good parts in the trailer is so people will come see the damn movie and give them money. Are you seriously floating the idea that TM would prefer people don't have some jokes spoiled than making money? Jesus, Mary, and Joseph son - that is some powerful spinning.

This!

Again, have any of you seen the entire movie?


I have, got free tickets to the show in Kansas City not to long ago. I went with some guys I know who are big TM fans and even them thought it was an utter steaming pile of crap.


/hates tucker max
//he gives humans a bad name

I hope this works out for him. I mean, after studying for the LSAT, getting into law school, graduating, and then passing the bar just to find out you didn't really want to work that hard must have taken a toll on him.

Hey Max, at least karatekitten will give you $8!

If you have to proclaim yourself as "funny," chances are you are the only one of your friends that think that.

ENOUGH.

Oh god, IE6/7, REALLY?
Please, for my sake, upgrade to IE8.


IE7 is outdated, but it works fine for what I do on this computer. Hell, I don't even mind having banners on the site, provided that not every goddamn one of them is Tucker Max related.

Now that was funny.

I heard Tucker Max is going to make it big like O&A, because they're friends of FARK!

/wtf is a Tucker Max?
//Had to bring up O&A out of pity.

Tucker Max? Is that like Office Max?

Washington Square News gave movie a bad review. Says he is a mysogonist.
 
2009-09-25 10:06:02 PM  
This guy loves negative press/comments. That is the only thing that makes him relevant. See the movie if you want, not a big deal, just let him be a douche. His 15 minutes will pass quickly.

I'm only passionate because I do web development and have to support ninety bazillion different browsers. I'll forgive you since it was IE7 and not IE6.

That's the thing - when all we had was 3 networks, some cable, newspapers and People magazine that was true. But if you haven't been keeping up with the internet, celeb websites, blogs, and 698 reality shows, it now seems that the 15 minutes can last years. We're probably stuck with him forever.
 
2009-09-26 01:55:28 AM  
Well that explains all the shiat ads for the movie on Fark. Not cool at all as the guy is an asshole. Oh well Drew is a media whore as well so it's a marriage made for the internet, with a quickie divorce soon to follow. Embarrassing...
 
2009-09-26 02:09:40 AM  
The only thing you need to know about Tucker Max is that he went to University of Chicago and Duke. Ergo, he's the most socially awkward douche you will ever meet.

I'll maybe watch the torrent, and probably only the first 15 minutes

Add Paris Hilton to the mix, and it would be a slam dunk.
 
2009-09-26 02:58:30 AM  
The only reason I'd remotely be interested in his movie is because the woman that played the Deaf Girl is a friend of mine from UCLA.

That said, I'm not going to see his movie and I hope Tucker Max dies in a fire while I laugh at him.

Holy crap, I just clicked the EW review link and realized that I went to high school and acted with Geoff Stultz, the guy who plays one of his friends. Hes a really nice guy. Too bad he's in this piece of garbage.

Tucker Max sounds like a gay porn name...

Now if someone produced a real life snuff film starring Tucker Max and Paris Hilton actually killing each other I might watch it.

Thought about subscribing to TF, but not a chance now. Too many lemmings...

Just knowing that Fark is in any way associated with this poster child for forced abortion makes me wonder if I can keep frequenting this site.
