Eric’s Bad Movies & What’s the Big Deal? – May 13

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Last weekend I was on the phone with my friend and sidekick Jeff Bayer, of “Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider,” trying to get him to help me watch “The Apple” for Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com.

“What’s it about?” he asked.

I read from the Netflix sleeve the DVD had come in: “Two Canadians, Alphie and Bibi, travel to America in the future–”

“Stop. I’m sold.”

As it turns out, the Netflix sleeve was misleading. We thought it meant the Canadians travel through time to the America of the future. But no, they’re already in the future; they just travel to America. What’s interesting is that this movie is so bizarre, adding a time-travel element to it wouldn’t make it any weirder.

My other Film.com feature, What’s the Big Deal?, this week focuses on “Annie Hall.” It won the Best Picture Academy Award, you know — instead of “Star Wars,” if you can imagine such blasphemy.

Saw a woman at the store who looked like Kathy Geiss and talked like SNL’s Target Lady. I want her to be my best friend.

Not counting shows w/political guests, Betty White had the best ratings of any SNL in 16 years. http://nyti.ms/cM4JFR
