One of the worst movies in a long time

This may have spoilers for you so go away if you were planning to go see The Happening sometime soon. Actually, if you are planning to go see The Happening, don't. Its bad. Real bad. Like its so bad that Scott and I were laughing at inappropriate parts and if I didn;t have to be somewhere later we would have left and gone to see the Zohan movie. At least then you go in knowing its gonna be crappy but hilarious.

Seriously, if given the option to watch The Happening again or I Know Who Killed, I might go for the Lindsay Lohan flick. The Happening did have some good points:

- you could always rely on that Zoey chick to make her super sad digitally blue eyes look really huge and super sad

- Marky Mark is always cute even if 75% of the time he is a horrible actor

- Everyone loves death by lawnmover

- lots of bodies but not enough to up the stars to 3 out 5. I am still torn between giving it 1 or 2 stars so I think 1.65 stars out of 5 is my score.

There were no gratuitous sex scenes and in fact it was rated PG-14 or something like that for sensuality. Um, if the wind blowing is sensuality then maybe it was in there but I only saw some hand holding. Not even one brief flash of panties was present.

To sum it up, if you pay 10 bucks to go see this movie you are a dumbass. I like almost every movie I have ever seen but this one sucked. In fact, if you pay to see this at the movies you should just throw your wallet in the trash because you are obviously not good with money and financial decisions.

From Rotten Tomatoes

"The Happening begins with promise, but unfortunately descends into an incoherent and unconvincing trifle."
