It looks like The Beaver, Mel Gibson's latest movie (probably the first real acting role he's had in 6 years following his burst of ghastly slurs
) and also Jodie Foster's latest, has tanked big time with just a paltry number of screens to run on
. Ah well. I won't feel one bit sorry to see their careers go down with the tree trunk that crashed into the pond after the beaver chewed it up.
But I do want to say how amazing it is that some of the most notable people associated with Lethal Weapon 1-4 are some of the shadiest and now unendurable. Danny Glover, for example, took part in a Turkish anti-American movie
. I'll never be able to watch those films again without wincing.
