Cinema Enema

Headline: Hollywood making Milli Vanilli movie

Hollywood trade paper Daily Variety reported in its Thursday issue that Universal Pictures is developing a film about the lip-synching combo, who lost their coveted Grammy for best new artist in 1990 when it emerged that they had never sung on their records.

Funny, I didn't realize Hollywood still made silent movies.

Oh that is good. I just saw on your profile that you like High Plains Drifter. So do I! Where are you on The Good, The Bad and The Ugly?

Enemy - I love all of Clint's westerns. I like the Good, Bad & the Ugly, but my top 3 favs are HPD, Unforgiven, and Two Mules for Sr. Sara. (with Pale Rider coming in at a close 3rd. :)

The movie won't be silent. I hear voice overs will be provided by Charles Shaw and Martha Wash.

X - true! let's just hope they get the sound/timing right and it won't be like an old karate movie.

Weird as it sounds, lip-syncing is probably a highly developed skill in its own right. The problem here is not lack of skill, but rather truth telling.

dudette, you're on a roll with your punchlines! I'm getting nauseous thinking about this project. Lip-synching may be an art form to its own, particularly since I did it straight on through 6th grade chorus and got away with it, but still, it does get a little cheesy.

Seven - yeah. I don't know how they lived with themselves for so long. I couldn't have done it.

Ray - thanks, dude! ;) It sickens as well to think how many times you'd have to listen to Blame it on the Rain during that movie. I hated them even before I knew they were fakes.

the target audience is definitely the biggest question...the minute I see this film on VH-1's rock movie series, I'm calling Comcast and canceling the cable

Holy cow, it's official, Hollywood is out of ideas.. Has Hollywood jumped the shark with movie ideas? Hrm... Maybe Milli Vanilli can jump a shark in the movie. Hrm.

Phoenix. seek help. ;)

Ray. I'm sure it'll play a million times. So get ready to cancel.

Fated. Hilarious. Maybe Henry Winkler will be the director?
