Your Movie Title Is Dumb

What does that even mean? Is that, like, a saying or something? As in, "when you're staring out a broken window with a black guy standing behind you, well you're just spinning into butter." Even if that's the case, it doesn't make any sense. Although I guess if the butter was spinning hard enough, it could work up enough force to shatter a pane of glass. Maybe THAT'S why Sarah Jessica Parker looks so upset... She's mad at the other guy because he spun the butter too hard and it broke the window and now everyone can see her possibly-cancerous mole.
Hm... well, whatever the reason, it's a dumb title and the movie is probably also dumb. Although it IS good to see Beau Bridges get some work. It's hard being the ugly brother, so it's nice of Hollywood to cut him some slack.
NOTE: I just looked this movie up and, apparently, it was shot over two years ago and is JUST NOW being given a "limited release." That means, if you read between the lines, that watching this movie will be a lot like getting your nuts caught in a revolving door. Or, for the ladies, getting a boob thwacked by the mighty hand of Zeus. He thwacks hard, for reals.

"spinning into butter" is an allusion to the old kid's story "little black sambo"- and the cover and tag line make me think this is about race relations- of course it's easier to just call it stupid though. because truly it is.

It probably is a wretched movie if Sarah Jessica Parker is in it, but I saw the stage production a few years ago and it was AMAZING!!! I still wouldn't see the movie, but the play is about racism at a small college and it is incredible.

Beau Bridges was fantastic in The Wizard, the hour and twenty minute Nintendo commercial from the late 80's. I caught this on HBO the other day and sat through the entire thing. It was just as wonderful as I remembered as a kid. Although Lucas can shove his Power Glove straight up his ass.

Uh... it's a fairly well known play...

Also, I went to college with the black dude in the picture.

It's the 'Butterface' of Cinema. Everything's hot But Her Title. Wait.

I excited to see the sequel "I Can't Believe It's Not Spinning Into Butterâ„¢"
