Heralded by the most disliked trailer in YouTube history, and an embargo on reviews until pretty much the day of release by a panicked Sony Studios, the "Heaven's Gate" of supernatural horror comedies is finally here, and what a terrible, unfunny, man-hating mess it is. Like Paul Feig's previous movie, 'The Heat', this appears to be nothing more than a 'comedy' with all the comedy taken out: No jokes. No discernible plot to speak of. No memorable or likable characters. Terrible CGI. Possibly the worst theme song ever penned. Then on top of that the only black woman in the thing is a 'HEELLLL NO" racial stereotype 40 years out of date, and ALL the men, without a single exception, are exclusively depicted as either stupid or evil. I honestly hope this abomination is such a flop it sinks the studio, and so ever after acts as a warning to future film-makers not to cynically exploit beloved movies from the past for short term gain or presently fashionable political brownie points, but maybe instead try to make memorable movies of lasting magic and worth themselves.
