I went with the fam to see this movie today. It is a perfectly fine lightweight comedy. Kevin James does a great job as Blart. If you get a chance, it might be worth seeing. So why am I annoyed? Here’s why:
Now, for the rest of this weekend, I will have this ridiculous song rolling around in my head. There were a ton of other songs in the movie but this is the one that will haunt me. I was really kind of hoping that once the 70’s were over, I would never have to here another Barry Manilow song in my life. Don’t get me wrong…he is a fine musician and, if that is your cup of tea, then knock yourself out.
However, for those of us that had to endure these type of AM sappy songs as a youngster, even hearing them one more time is painful. So, please, play the video and share my pain.
One more thing. Whenever I see Kevin James I immediately think of Leah Remini. So I Wiki to see what she is up to these days and I am disturbed by what I read. When did Leah go all “Scientology”? She used to be so awesome on the King of Queens…well, until she got all blowed up being pregnant. Still, if you watch the older episodes, you can’t help but envy Doug. Fat dude with smoking hot wife. (Just like all shows that have the fat husband and the smoking wife. Pure comic genius and a gift to all of the husky men in America).
Whenever you shake off that Tom Cruise voodoo, Ms. Remini, you will be welcomed back onto my back up list.
Crap. I feel bad for punishing you with Barry. Here is a real mans song from the 70’s to clear your head out.
Isn’t he just dreamy?
