You may have thought it already happened, but I think we may have just reached the pinnacle of stupid movie ideas. Many of you have likely seen the relatively clever 1985 film, Clue (cram it, Sarina), based on the board game of the same name. It was a solid effort, though I maintain that it borrowed heavily from the far superior Neil Simon classic Murder By Death. Regardless, Clue isn’t the greatest movie (I said CRAM IT, Sarina), but it’s a painlessly amusing way to spend 90 minutes.


That’s right kiddies. What’s dumber than making a movie out of a board game? Remaking a movie based on a board game. Hollywood seems determined to come up with concepts so staggeringly asinine that one can’t help but wonder if it’s not some sort of plot. There’s a small part of me that thinks that they do this on purpose, churn out the goofiest, half-assiest ideas possible in an effort to actually make us stupider. Then, they shall force their way into our homes and their reign of terror will begin, and it’ll be death from above and human sacrifice and cannibalism and poison monkeys and vampire chicken wings.

Wait… what? I feel weird.

Anyway, Gore Verbinski is set to direct. Good news: He directed the first Pirates of the Caribbean. Bad news: He also directed the sequels.
