A new film is coming out and I predict that I will love it and place it among my all time favorites!!! Itâ€™s by the same folks the brought us â€œThere is Something About Mary,â€ so you know the film will leap over many social boundaries and rape several taboos.
When I saw the movieâ€™s trailer last night I thought this is bullshit, its just MTV doing a movie trailer spoof. Then I got the call at 8:30am this morning, it was my old supervisor from my prior job (about 5 years ago). He was laughing and I think, crying – while he proceeded to tell me about this new movie Trailer he saw a minute ago. I laughed with him and told him I had seen the same trailer the night before but I though it was a fake. He didnâ€™t think so and stated he could not wait to see the movie and he concluded his call by wishing me a happy holiday.
I decided to use my ever-ready friend, Google, to do a search for this new movie. Sure enough it came up as a Fox Searchlight Picture. Although it is easy to make a fake website, I finally realized this movie was in fact, very real.
What is the movieâ€™s name, you ask? THE RINGER. The Ringer stars Johnny Knoxville who gets in to debt and creatively develops a plan to fill his bank account. I digress, Johnny Knoxville is NOT my favorite actor, I wish it were some one else. However, I donâ€™t care cos I love the story and I think I may actually live with the real-life guy that the story is based. Getting back to the plot, Johnny Knoxvilleâ€™s character decides to pretend he is Mentally Retarded (intellectually impaired is the correct PC term) and join the Special Olympics track team. Ideally he plans to bet against the long standing World champion in the Special World Olympics and win the event himself while collecting his winnings.
I am sure I will enjoy this film and I only regret that Dr. Loki and I didnâ€™t have the script copyrighted seven years ago when we talked about a similar type production. Damn It.
