Wide World of Sports



A sextathalon featuring such competitions as the egg roll, leap frog, and beer guzzling. Sounds like comedy gold, right? Eh, not so much.

Most enjoyable for me is all the nostalgia hiding in the margins: that horrible tan van we used to own, how shockingly lush our backyard was, the omnipresent buzz of lawn mowers. In fact, I'd really enjoy this video if those two geeky teens weren't in it.

More like Wide World of Dorks...what happened to the creative gusto of Francis Ford Iowa? It was so promising. In parallel to FFC, you've started out with some real winners, and by WWS, you're like Coppola doing "Jack" with Robin Williams. The question is, when will we see your Tetro?

I will note that the video is briefly redeemed by the amusing faux-slo-mo end credits. But point off for mispelling "copyright."

Look, this one sucks. I know it. But "The Blob" is coming. And when it arrives you shall fall to your knees and howl for forgiveness.
