I was about to get all serious on you guys, and talk about how similar (although the writers “claim” they barely remember the true incident) 30 Minutes or Less is to the Brian Douglas Wells case. Both involve a pizza driver getting a bomb strapped to them, and there’s a plot of collecting an inheritance, yada yada… I’ll let you look into the horrible story. (Oh, and don’t bother with the movie either… it’s as pointless as Oreo Cakesters.)
The only thing worse I could write about would be how Up Close & Personal was originally based on the sad life of reporter Jessica Savitch, but then it suddenly wasn’t. (Yes, I’m bringing up the crappy Michelle Pfeiffer/Robert Redford vehicle as an example.)
So instead I will do this:
- It’s weird that the last two movies I saw (30 Minutes or Less and Rise of the Planet of the Apes) had unexpected things in common…
1) Apes (played by people) in the poster.
3) Our hero is probably a pothead in real life.
4) Our probable real life pothead hero has a hot Indian girlfriend.
