Direct to DVD Michelle Pfeiffer Flick Features Bush Bashing
Christian Toto, Washington Times entertainment reporter, dropped us a note about the upcoming release of a direct to DVD movie called, "I Could Never Be Your Woman." This flick that wasn't ranked high enough by the studio to get a theatrical release stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Paul Rudd, and Saoirse Ronan. It's supposed to be a love triangle comedy flick, but close to the end of the thing is included a slam on President Bush that has nothing at all to do with the rest of the movie and is blatant for its gratuitous nature.
As Mr. Toto has it this "nasty bit of Bush bashing" is at about 98 percent through the film and occurs during a scene where young Miss Ronan is playing the part of a teenaged talent show contestant.
Ronan's character takes the stage for a student talent show and starts strumming a song to the tune of Alanis Morissette's "Ironic."
Then Mr. Toto gives us the faux lyrics of this Bush bashing tune...
"While the North Pole is turning to slush, on my TV there's President Bush," she sneers. "He's a pay-ay-ain in the whole world's ass. How can it be we voted him in? I just don't see how it figures."
The crowd laughs and cheers the song, while Pfeiffer's character beams like a proud mama.
So, out of the blue everyone starts attacking President Bush for no reason. The movie has nothing whatever to do with politics or current events, yet they go after President Bush without provocation or any conformity with the continuity of the plot. It is so typical of Hollyweird to go off on a hate rant like that, isn't it?
I'd also like to say one thing about the Alanis Morissette song, "Ironic." She doesn't get ironic right. The song is a complete failure at showcasing any irony. Morissette only ends up proving that she hasn't a clue what the definition of irony is. Is it "ironic" that she is trying to talk about irony without even knowing what it is? Well, if it isn't "ironic," it is certainly ridiculous. Just like this direct-to-DVD "comedy."
