I go out of my way to be nice to anyone with an accent working the phones. It’s a terrible job and if India or Malaysia want to help with the heavy lifting, well, that’s fine by me. But lately, I’ve noticed a lot of people who are working the phones and who are getting tired of people giving them crap. It’s like… wow… this is some angry backlash.
Anyway, my hats off to anyone who has to work the phones and deal with frustrated people calling in all day long.
#9 – So I Married an Axe Murderer
Yes, Mike Meyers wore out his welcome with his shameless mugging and his inability not to smile/laugh/yuck-yuck-yuck at his own jokes. And if I could do anything, I would recast him and Nancy Travis in this film in a heartbeat.
All that being said, if Silence of the Lambs is just a little too intense for your preteen, you should consider giving this overlooked movie a try. The supporting cast is great especially Anthony LaPaglia as Mike Meyer’s police detective friend.
Thanks to Dexter and Hannibal and CSI Special Victim Unit, it’s clear that serial killers are here to stay. And So I Married an Axe Murderer is a nice introduction to that genre without going all torture porn R.
