George Clooney's new movie "The American."
*****
First off I'd like to say that I've seen better acting and dialogue from Christy McNichol in an after school special. Unfortunately though, I 'm not able to reiterate what "The American" movie was about because honestly I have no idea. There seemed to have been no plot, quality control, or continuity. One minute George is in Sweden with a naked woman and then he kills her for some reason which I still don't understand, then in the next scene he's in Rome with another naked woman and - well you get the idea. I would say that if a script calls for a naked woman to enhance a scene then the scene was without any substance or merit to begin with, similarly like those children's movies which use flatulence jokes because the story lacks intelligence, imagination, and substance.

 Even though George's performance was poorly executed my blog administrator/activity director thought the naked women with no speaking parts were worthy of academy awards.  As I've said before my administrator isn't funny and beside he wouldn't even know because I covered his eyes.
*****
The knock off Mcgyver scene where George's character fabricates a Rugar mini 14 from scrap metal found in a shop garage  drawer was pretty lame since we could plainly see that in real life the only way George might have been able to make a gun like that work properly was if he would have willed it with his mind like the amazing Kreskin.


George's  performance consisted of two distinct facial expressions with the main one being a lifeless unvaried dead pan look as if he was actually "Pained" to have been a part of  this movie, but then in the last scene his other expression was most entertaining.  (Spoiler alert!)  Thankfully, in the end when his character was shot and dying  from massive gun shot wounds, his sweaty, nauseated and  contorted facial expression had the look of a  man on a three day  GoLYTELY® binge with an expiration chug -which I found humorous indeed.

My activity director said," Why do you think George's tattoo was of a butterfly and not of,.....let's say a rainbow?" I replied, "Because if George would've had a rainbow tattoo this would have been an entirely different kind of movie.

*****
Mr. George, I would like for you to send  a reimbursement check to me for $10.00 and include a replacement  box of peanut M&M'S. I gladly accept certified checks and or pay pal.



Here's a great little movie that featured breasts which were used in a more contextual way to the story line and I found the movie to be delightful.

George should be ashamed of himself! I'm not kidding.

I trust your judgment. I'm never watching this.

I had a feeling that the last good Clooney film was that "OH Brother!".

Now, he's just the star of "Why Bother?".



(I suspected it was a film that was going to make "Americans" look bad. Bad stuff America has done or does to less fortunate nations. Blah Blah Blah. Oh, and how much American $ is sent to humanitarian causes, Never a topic of a Big Hollywood Production.)

The Amazing Kreskin looks like Austin Powers.
