New Dane Cook Comedy Could Be Worst Reviewed Movie Ever

Tomato Meter Dane Cook, the coked up Fraggle who took the comedy world by storm last year, has his first star vehicle coming out today. Since I'm a fan of comedy, seeing it ranks somewhere around taking a jog while holding in an immense dump on the list of things I want to do this weekend. But I've been closely monitoring its reviews on Rotten Tomatoes because I'm utterly convinced that this movie will end Dane Cook's career.

When a charismatic actor won't take no for an answer in his pursuit of a woman, it's chivalrous. When someone with the cold dead eyes of a video game character won't take no for an answer, he's going to remind you of a serial rapist. The Tomatometer is hovering at 3% right now, which would make it the worst reviewed movie of the year. I'm setting the over-under for the weekend Box Office at $10 Million and taking the under. Good luck indeed.
