Oh, Dave Foley. So great in “Kids in the Hall.” So spectacular in “News Radio.” So should’ve gone on my list of the decade’s biggest flame-outs. Dude’s got 64 screen credits during the Aughts, and not a damn one of them worth a damn. What the hell, man? It’s cool to take risks and all with indie flicks, but brother, you gotta read the script before you sign on. You guys remember Suck from earlier this year? No. Of course you don’t. No one saw it. How about Uwe Boll’s Postal? Maybe you remember the trailer, but I’m sure less than three of you actually saw the film, and all three of you belong in the crazy-pants hospital.
This here trailer is for The Strip, a movie that’s actually in theaters now, if you can believe it (if you don’t want to believe it, please be my guest). It’s a workplace comedy set in a low-end electronics store, where folks try to find ways to amuse themselves and stave off adulthood.
I should also mention it looks horrific.
What happened, Dave? Did the United States revoke your Visa? Have you nothing better to do? Is this why it’s taken so long to get the “Kids in the Hall” series rolling again? Well, it’s a pathetic goddamn excuse. For the love of Sarah Palin, do something worthy with your talents. Not this, sir. Not this.
