#90: Idio(cra)cy

September 3, 2006

Notes from the Manager

Another single-panel this time, because I need a Labor Day weekend, just like you guys. I’ll make up for it later this week, promise. I just didn’t have time to finish the longer update I’d started.

Jason’s “poster” and Quint’s “Open Letter to FOX” at Ain’t It Cool News pretty much sum up my opinion of how FOX has handled the release of this film. Even if FOX honestly thought the movie sucked and/or would deeply offend all the morons in the US (62,040,610 of them, last time our country counted), when was the last time that stopped a Hollywood studio from promoting a movie?! Practically everybody I know has seen Office Space five or six times — of course some of them would check out Idiocracy… if they knew it existed!

UPDATE (from the future): A trailer made its way to the internet (long, long after the film hit video), and I thought I’d include it for people who aren’t familiar with the film:

Trailer Watch: Jenny Slate in Obvious Child

Thursday, April 17, 2014

This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this.

Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr.
