Hopefully you don't have any warrants out for your arrest. LOL


Come to think of it....... I might not have checked the book out

Er, don't most video stores just keep your deposit and charge you if you lose the tape?


This is 15 years ago, so maybe some stores aren't technologically advanced. But I remembered when there were still video stores, I had to store my bank card details...

Funnier than the movie in question.



They should make a movie around this. By the way, the late Roger Ebert's zero star review of "Freddy Got Fingered" was one of his funniest reviews. I also recalled that Tom Green even showed up at the Razzie Awards.

It's possible, but I don't think it is up to a police officer to make that judgment call. If they see an arrest warrant, they have to act on it, even if the case eventually gets dismissed in court. I hope that the final "sentencing" will be fairly light for the guy, if it amounts to anything more than returning the tape and a $100 fine.

Makes sense. The police are meant to arrest and detain, not judge. I only looked into it a little earlier, but I had come up with the conclusion that it would likely be something to be resolved in court shortly after posting my comment. Thanks for the reply, though!

"This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels."

Ah, the days of the classic Ebert pan. Too bad he didn't live long enough to see Batman vs. Superman.

I always wondered if he was tempted to give "Freddy Got Fingered" something even lower than no stars when he wrote that review. Other classic Ebert bashing was "North" where he said "I hated, hated, hated this movie".

Ebert and Siskel were both lucky enough to be granted early access to high definition television when it was being developed in secret decades before hd tv became the norm. They were huge fans of it, and they did not fail to mention it in several articles in print, and also on their show when talking about home theater technology.

I really wished he had a chance to watch The Hobbit in 48fps. He was a huge advocate for faster frame rates in movies after witnessing an early demo of it. I would have thought that had he seen the first Hobbit film, he'd easily give it a 4 star review and said that faster frame rate is a must see.

But unfortunately for Ebert, and also for us as movie goers, he broke his hip the week before and couldn't watch any movies at his usual movie theater, and only later it was found it was cancer spreading through his bones.

Er, noooo, meant "I'd love to have seen him tear that wrist-slitting giggle-fest a new one for its pompous audience-assaulting pretentiousness."

But he usually came off more annoyed at action movies than wisecracking.
