Hamlet 2

"My life is a parody of a tragedy" -- Dana Marschz, Hamlet 2


Yesterday, the Pineapple Family went to see Hamlet 2. We all laughed our asses off. Frankly, I am baffled as to why the reviews are so tepid and why our presence doubled the number of people in the theater. Why wouldn't people want to see a movie that features fantastic songs like "Rock Me Sexy Jesus", "Raped In The Face", and "You're As Gay As The Day Is Long"? Maybe the masses just don't get the funny. We all laughed from start to finish and still had the giggles after we left the theater. Steve Coogan was hilarious and Elisabeth Shue did a fantastic job of playing herself. I've already downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes so I can learn all of the songs. I plan to sing along next time I go see this movie. If you are looking for a good laugh, I highly recommend Hamlet 2.

Watching the GOP convention with the sound turned off is yucks enough for me.

Hamlet 2?? I must have missed that one... Every once in a while when I have nothing else to read I drag out my Shakespeare books. Gotta get to the book store soon.

it was awesome, but you can only catch it in the so-called art house movie theaters. In other words, ain't nobody gonna go see it...
