Dedicated to the young couple at the video rental store, he with his spiky blonde hair, she with her long straight brown hair.
She: Let's rent this! Jackass 2.5!
He: Nah. It's going to be the same as Jackass 1 and 2.
She: But it will still make me laugh.
He: It's just more of the same.
She: So it will make me laugh.
He: We already saw it.
She: It will make me laugh, though, just like the other ones.
He (picking up another video): Lake Placid 2. It was a mistake to make that movie.
For those of you who occasionally wonder aloud, "Why does Hollywood keep making movies like 'Jackass'?" this is your answer: because they continue to make money off them. Ditto, Lake Placid. Ditto, "Saw: Ad Nauseum."
I took the moral highground and rented "Ocean's 13." The sequel to a sequel. Since they couldn't come up with a compelling plot they settled for providing an emotional experience roughly equivalent to Ocean's Eleven. But it still made me laugh.
