Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a satisfying Tuesday. If not then pucker up, it's Wednesday and that means that the week is at the halfway mark.
Alright so I saw the movie Horrible Bosses last night and I have one thing to say about it, IT WAS HILARIOUS! Honestly it ranks up there as one of the best comedies that I have seen in a long time. This movie exceeded my expectations by far. I was anticipating the movie to be filled with laughs, but it was funnier than I originally thought it would be.
It was a pleasant surprise to see Jason Bateman as the lead for this movie. I watched him on "Arrested Development" and absolutely enjoy his dry comedy then and still do. I think he was perfect for the character of Nick Hendricks. Hopefully for him this will lead to more lead roles.
I think the difference maker in the movie was Charlie Day who plays Dale Arbus. His character had me laughing every time he opened his mouth. His quirkiness and off-the-wall antics made this movie really shine. His character probably added the most explosiveness and punch to the movie. Without him the movie probably wouldn't have been nearly as good.
I don't want to give away any of the movie for those of you who have yet to see it. But I do recommend that you see it immediately! If you don't then you're missing out on one of the best comedies of the summer.
Alright here's a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Tuesday.
- The Bengals scored the third worst fan difficulty index. At least we aren't the worst team is all I have to say.
- Boise State safety Jeron Johnson could be a potential undrafted free agent signing for the Bengals. Personally it couldn't hurt to sign him. It's not as if he posted poor numbers in college.
- The Layman's list of priorities for the Bengals once the new league year starts was revealed. Most of those issues I agree with.
- Former Bengals wide receiver Maurice Purify signed with the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks. Well at least some team wanted him. I'm sure he'll do just fine in the UFL.
- Our question of the day was presented: Who is the least valuable Bengals player for 2011? Be creative people! Someone pick someone other than Carson Palmer or Chad Ochocinco!
- The Wall Street Journal commented on the Bengals "sweet" stadium deal, deeming it as "one of the worst professional sports deals." Well it's hard to argue with that one really.
- The topic as to why a straight-up trade of Carson Palmer for Donovan McNabb wouldn't be beneficial for the Bengals was discussed. I don't envision McNabb suiting up for the Bengals. End of story. It won't happen.
- A solution for left guard is an easy one, bring back Evan Mathis and start him. Even though it is highly unlikely that that will happen, it is a reasonable solution for the Bengals. What's the worst that could happen?
