Well, for a long time I thought I Heart Huckabees
topped my list as the decade's most pretentious, false, and pointless film. But then I saw Elizabethtown
and realized I needed a new list. If there was one honest second in Elizabethtown, it must have come when I was sleeping. It was a masterpiece of failed emotional manipulation. Okay, so that went on top. But then last week I saw The Last Kiss.
It could also have been titled The Last Zach Braff Movie I Will Ever See.
Zach's sad-Zach face and overwhelming level of Braffness reaches near-unbearable levels about 12 minutes in. And then there's another hour and a half of him staring at the lens with big doe-y Braff-eyes. So, yeah, Last Kiss is now on top. It's hard to imagine it being displaced, but I still haven't seen that Leo The Cap movie where he talks in a Boer accent and saves all of Africa from evil diamond smugglers.
