It’s rare for a movie to be so bad that I’ll turn it off in digust or boredom. One of the more recent such movies is “Igby Goes Down” which was just horrible. I mean, c’mon, I managed to sit through the entire “Charlie’s Angel: Full Throttle” even though it was completely asinine. So it takes a lot to make me get up off the couch and stop a movie halfway through.
There’s always a but.
Denis and I decided to give “Starsky & Hutch” a try, even though all reviews (and even Mr. “I loved Scooby Doo” Ace) hated it. But, about 28 minutes in (yes, we made it that far) I turned to him and said, “You ready to turn this off?” Denis laughed and said, “Sure.” We both sat there, neither reaching for the remote.
“Let’s give it ten more minutes,” I finally said.
Nine minutes later we turned off the movie.
I think that sums up how we feel about that one.
Zero bad wigs out of five.
