Bad Teacher (Cam's back!)

I'm generally in the camp that comedians should be playing the lead female roles in comedies because you know, they're actually funny, but my whole theory got blown up by the movie Bad Teacher.  If you haven't seen it, you need to, because it's probably my favorite movie of the year.  The only reason I'm just getting around to it now is because my friends don't like to see anything that's not an ultra serious documentary about making bicycles for women in a small village in Africa.  No. fucking. thanks.

In Blank Stare news Billy Crystal is hosting the Oscars.  again. o_O  After Eddie peaced, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to watch anyway, but now I'm definitely not going to watch.  One because black people having been getting shut out.  Was anyone black even there last year?  So instead of funny this year, the show is going for safe.  Think superbowl halftime shows in the post nipplegate era.  Unfortunately, Billy Crystal is now the dump off pass of Oscar hosts.  I'd much rather give James Franco another shot with a script written to his comedic strengths.  I mean the guy is funny if you give him something to work with.


p.s. following up on my bad teacher train of thought.  Can't wait for "Young Adult"

Diablo Cody + Charlize Theron = gold
