I sometimes wonder if movie execs subscribe to a policy of wake and bake. Seriously. I refuse to believe that there are so few good movie ideas left that studios have to resort to some of the crap they put out (i.e. anything Lindsay Lohan has been involved with since Mean Girls.)
Take, for example, the latest “live action video game movie” that’s apparently based on The Sims. I’ll admit I’m a Sims addict. Reason? I can get stupid people to do what I want. If I think one of my Sims is too stupid to live, I can simply build them into a house with no doors, windows, bathroom, or phone and give them a stove. In no time flat, I have the Grim Reaper waiting for pick-up. Unless you are going to give me a mouse to control the stupid little computer people, why on EARTH would I want to see it as a movie?
Wait. Never mind. I just had a brainstorm! This is live action, right? You sign up the entire Snatch Pack. Put Paris, Britney, Lindsay in the house. Take away the door. Buy them a stove. WHEE!
