A Sure Way to an Oscar Nomination

leave a comment »

A while back, I saw the new Sarah Silverman movie, I Smile Back. You can find my terse review of it over at Basically, the movie wastes a great performance by Sarah Silverman with a structureless script that has Silverman’s character make baffling choices for no apparent reason.

Anyway, perusing Google News, a review of I Smile Back came up and I took a gander to see what other people are saying about this foray into misery porn.  That’s when I found this:


The role has Oscar nomination written all over it: See the actress grind on a teddy bear, sleep with strangers, snort cocaine off a bathroom floor, lie to her saintly husband, and ache with excruciating, visceral love for her still-perfect children.


Listen up lady! Masturbating with teddy bears does not get you an Oscar nomination. It didn’t work for Liam Neeson, it aint going to work for Silverman!

"I only masturbated with a female teddy bear. I mean really -- what am I? A pervert?"

“I only masturbated with a female teddy bear. I mean really — what am I? A pervert?”
