Movies to miss in February

The DVD selection looks decent this month, but there are still a few crapfests hitting theaters in February.

Confessions of a Shopaholic: I keep having that drug abuse support group scene from Half Baked run through my mind every time I hear this movie’s title. I doubt anyone with a real “aholic” problem would be amused by valley girls who can’t seem to stop shopping, but hey, who am I to judge?

I would also assume most folk would not want to watch a movie about a girl who is used to getting everything she wants learn a few “hard lessons” about life simply by putting away her credit card only to get everything she wants once again by the time the credits roll, but somehow I think this will nab the number one spot for at least a couple weeks. I weep for our future.

Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail: This dude is the Danielle Steel of crappy movies. He just keeps churning them out. At least he’s kind enough to put his name at the beginning of every damn thing he touches so we know to stay far, far away.

Street Fighter- Legend of Chun Li: When I heard there was going to be a SF sequel, I cringed. Given the original (delightfully terrible) film, I was baffled anyone would ever greenlight a followup. Then I did my homework and found out what the movie is really about. I now wish they were doing a direct sequel instead.

Haha! Dusty and I were just talking about the Shopaholic movie. He was really hoping that you'd take him on a date to see it...and pay.

I'd rather go see the new street fighter. And I reeeeally don't want to see the new Street Fighter. So that should tell you how much I want to see Shopaholic.
