Obviously, Miami Vice revolves around drug-dealing

Yeah, the reviewer sounds downright shocked. What's the point of this submission?

To give me an opportunity to say that I liked the film?

Did subby get to the part after the author said he expected drugs where he described how no-one in the movie ever uses them?

Smitty should be sent back to school for some reading comprehension.

I've seen the new "BSG" a few times. seems pretty good but I havent seen it in order so that always sucks...

plugged in online is hilarious and scary at the same time, you should read some of the other reviews on it too, craziness

Go to the music section there. Unless the album is called "Jesus is awesome" with one song that just repeats "I love Jesus", they don't think it's appropriate.

And they always end it with some stupid play on words.

The Killers: Hot Fuss - "Unfortunately, dark, perverse moments will leave families wondering what the Fuss was about.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....*sigh* What world are these people living in, and when can we nuke it from orbit, just to be sure?

Miami Vice was just aggressively awful. Colin Farrell spoke in a gravelly "I am being serious and hard-bitten so I am believable" voice the entire time, Jamie Foxx somehow took Ricardo Tubbs from second banana to almost-lead and badass cool guy (which I'm sure has nothing to do with his diva histrionics, causing massive rewrites), the female lead was unintelligble for at least 50% of her lines, and the script...oh, LORD, did that make no discernible sense whatsoever. Worst movie of the summer and probably the year thus far that I've seen.

Oooooh, a pluggedin online link. They're part of James Dobson's Focus on the Family that reviews media to make sure it's appropriate for 'good upstanding Christians'. That means that not only are the review full of hilarious self-rightousness, they also tell you exactly how much of teh boobies are in a movie.

To do their job, Crockett and Tubbs must deceive others. Such actions are perhaps defensible when it comes to dealing with the drug lords; but Crockett's ongoing deception of Isabella in the name of his work is definitely problematic. She's furious and feels deeply betrayed when she learns his true identity. (Of course she is cheating on her husband, so her outrage does ring a tad hollow.)

Classic. As much as I disagree with the whole focus on the family crap, I may have to go to this site for all my movie reviews. And, yeah, this'll save so much time (and heard-earned money) wondering if anyone gets all the way nekkid or not.
