This sounds retarded.

And queer.

There's something delightfully farked up about a comedy starring a retard.
 
2013-09-09 01:34:26 PM  
I'm ok with this.

From the minute the dame stepped into my office I could tell she was trouble- the kind of trouble that ends with a potato. I should have sent her packing. But what can I say? I'm a sucker for a dame

I was hoping it would be Alice's brother from Workaholics

"And just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, she had to potato into my life."

"nominated for potato academy awards!"

Has anyone made a potato joke yet?  Because that would be original and hilarious

Hence the appeal of Adam Sandler movies.

Wasn't this a Robot Chicken skit?

Well, it's no Fat Guy Goes Nutzoid, but I'm sure it'll still be a bold stride towards pudding for the community.

From the description, it doesn't sound horrible, but it also doesn't sound like a comedy either.

A talented screenwriter and director could make this work, but this will probably end up being a sub-Uwe Boll production.

Of all the potato joints in the world, she had to walk into mine.

/yes, it's not a mystery
//it works, though.

It was a dark and stormy potato.

Didn't Crispin Glover already do this anyway?

abhorrent1: Meh, it's been done


Wow there's some hits and misses on that one. I feel bad for laughing at some of them.

I was prepared to really hate this film.

But you know what? If you read the description of the film, it seems like it will treat the Downs part seriously. Since the guy with Downs is only hired to placate a senile old mother so she doesn't go to the police (which implies some serious wrong-doing somewhere else), then while it may be a comedy about a Down's Syndrome PI, it looks more like a film that will have jokes at the expense of the more "normal" people who are scumbags.

It's a comedy formula that could work while it doesn't treat the Down's guy like he's a walking punchline.

But I've been lied to before about movie descriptions, so....

Blankman did it first.

I can't wait for the climax where he goes sex nuts and retard strong.

Never go full Jerk.

This would only work if the Farrelly brothers are involved.  They are the only ones I trust with a somewhat touchy/PC subject mater.

Now in Potato-vision!

Rocking back and forth thinking about the case, whacking off in public while on stake out to make people think you are not a cop, super retard strength in case of attack by perp, licking the window and seeing crime go down and your short bus can park anywhere. This might work for a cop.

Are you a 'tard? Because you linked to the wrong thing.

It already does for an unsettling number of them.

That would put a serious damper on my sex life.

And they always have lots of slobber to use for lube too.

Is the love interest going to be that Down Syndrome actress who utterly pwned Sarah Palin a few years back?  And if not can we start a lobby for it?
