Not just that. If he just wanted to die, he could have shot himself. Instead, he gives away the rest of the college money his parents gave him, and disappears. He goes for months at a time without contacting his family (even dropping a postcard saying “I’m alive” would have went a long way in my book), leaving them to wonder if he was dead.
There’s a certain amount of sadism in voluntarily forcing your family to agonize as to whether you’re still alive.
Good call. For that matter, Jack really had no redeeming qualities. The entire trip is supposed to be his bachelor party, and he spends the majority of his time in the film sleeping with a very ugly Asian chick[sup]*[/sup]
How could I have forgotten Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight??:smack:
*This is no way is meant as a racial comment. I’m not disparaging Asians in general. I just think that Sandra Oh is not attractive at all. And she can’t act. Her eyes are too close together, and he face is too long. She reminds me of a crosseyed horse.
