Don't Read This If You Hate Billy

Postby Tuesday » Fri Oct 25, 2002 7:06 pm

Ok, I warned you ahead of time this time, if you hate Billy you didn't have to click on this and don't write some whiny ass crap at the bottom about this being an Angie board - there's no frickin Angie news right now, this guy's still her legal husband so it kind of IS Angie news ok???

Thornton Leads Classy Cast to Ruin in 'Reno'
Fri Oct 25, 4:12 AM ET
By Todd McCarthy, Variety Chief Film Critic

HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - If you can buy a scene in which a character played by Natasha Richardson (news) goes all warm and gooey at the prospect of seeing Tony Orlando perform live, then you might like "Waking Up in Reno," a hillbilly romantic comedy in which the hillbillies show up but the romance and comedy never do.

A real what-were-they-thinking effort, this forlorn Miramax trifle with an unaccountably classy cast has long been in a holding pattern awaiting an opening date, and while it could play for months in Branson, Mo., it will slip right in and out of theatrical release everywhere else.

Star Billy Bob Thornton (news) reportedly came up with the idea for this redneck "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" years ago and later hired his "Hearts Afire" TV writers Brett Briscoe and Mark Fauser to flesh it out. Lowbrow odyssey about a foursome whose destination is a Nevada monster-truck jam has an inescapably tube-like sensibility, one reflected when one of the characters remarks at the end that, "I saw these two couples on 'The Jerry (news - web sites) Springer Show' that screwed up a helluva lot worse than we did."

Lonnie Earl Dodd .......... Billy Bob Thornton

Candy Kirkendall .......... Charlize Theron

Darlene Dodd .............. Natasha Richardson

Roy Kirkendall ............ Patrick Swayze

Doc Tuley ................. Holmes Osborne

Fred Bush ................. Chelcie Ross

Brenda (Spanish Woman) .... Penelope Cruz

As Himself ................ Tony Orlando

I agree Dylemma - although you're probably one of the few that would have caught that.
Even though - Billy Bob news of any kind pisses some people off on the boards.
I'd love some Angie news, but I have a feeling there won't be any until there's a movie to promote, and like you I don't think it's going to have the same punch it used to.

thats one movie I aint gonna see, not because I don't like billy bob, just the fact that it looks kinda lame and boring, sorta like that new katie holmes flick abandon that came out last week. Can we say crap?
Katie Holmes can't act if her life depended on it.
