Must they?


I am enjoying Clerks II. It's not a movie I'd seek out, but here it is (as Sinatra would say) in the wee small hours of the morning, and it's on cable and I'm into it. Yes, it's unremittingly vulgar, but its heart is pure.

But every commercial that Comedy Central runs is for Girls Gone Wild. Clearly I'm not a prude, or wouldn't be watching this movie. But unlike the Kevin Smith movie, Girls Gone Wild has no heart. It's exploitation and it creeps me out.

I realize that 50-something women are not demographic Comedy Central expected when scheduling Clerks II, but still. Like the movie, I may be unremittingly vulgar, but my heart is pure, too, and Girls Gone Wild is just ugly.

  1. That's why I can't stand watching Comedy Central late at night.

  2. I loved Clerks 2. Anything that makes me laugh until my stomach hurts, no matter how crude, is a good thing. And it DID have heart.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
