While reading the Washington Post’s review of the Left Behind movie that starts today, I couldn’t help thinking that this was a superb opportunity for a wave of Dopefests across the nation. The Post’s Desson Howe describes the movie as “a blundering cringefest, due to unintentionally laughable dialogue, hackneyed writing, and uninspired direction.” My warped mind had a vision groups of Dopers all across our great land, going in to see this movie, and laughing in all the wrong places.
Oh sure, they’d probably throw a whole lot of us out of a whole bunch of movie theatres, but it would be worth it.
Of course, we may have to move fast; this turkey may be gone by next weekend. (It will then have a long second life of being shown on VHS at fundie church retreats, but I think most of us want to miss that.)
So, does anyone else think this idea has something to it, other than as a depraved fantasy?
