Philadelphia Weekly Trashes ‘Lady’
Some early reviews are out on M. Night Shyamalan’s new flick ‘Lady In The Water’ and it’s not looking good (I’m not going to lower my predictions on the box office take though). Currently ‘Lady in the Water’ is holding up a terrible 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, for crying out loud even ‘Little Man’ is pulling in a 16%. The one local review, written by Sean Burns over at Philadelphia Weekly, says it all in the first couple lines: “Has M. Night Shyamalan lost his goddamn mind? That’s the only logical excuse for Lady in the Water, the Philly-based writer/director/egomaniac’s convulsive seizure of narcissism that’s so nakedly personal–and also so unintentionally, hilariously revealing–watching the movie feels a bit like walking in on your roommate while he’s masturbating … to a picture of himself. ” Wow this is sounding great, glad I am going to see Clerks II on Friday instead (OK I’ll stop with the Clerks II promotion now at least until tomorrow).
