The Happening

is so far the worst movie I’ve seen this year, and quite possibly a contender for top ten worst films ever.

I’ve never seen a movie so completely mis-cast.  No one in this film belonged there.  First scene with Markie Mark, he’s wearing a sweater vest teaching school in Philadelphia, call bullshit, and try to sneak to another theater.  Or else you’ll be wasting another few hours of your time.  There are “tense” moments that are absolutely laughable.

I predict more than a few screen cap “.avis” going viral once this piece of shit hits DVD.  There’s a very annoying quality to Mark Wahlberg when he’s not playing a bad ass or speaking in his native Boston dialect.  The “ever so calm soothing ‘Everywhere’ Accent that he’s cultivated to cover his Bahston-ness is ever so irritating.

Watch this film at your own risk.  Personally, I think people should stop letting M. Night Shyamalan make movies.  He caught lightning in a bottle with his first one, but let’s face it, he’s kind of a hack.  Three turds in a row.  Go back to Bucks County, Asshole.
