The Wackness

The Wackness By the title, you'd think The Wackness was a stupid spoof flick, or some sort of terrible Martin Lawrence movie, but no, this is that movie where Mary-Kate Olsen makes out with Sir Ben Kingsley. You might have heard a little something about that. You know, because she is 21 and he's 63. Which is more than a little disturbing, but it's not the worst thing anyone's ever been asked to do as an actor, right? I mean, Rosie O'Donnell did this for a TV movie. So, yeah, as long as it's not gratuitous and it's done for art, and it adds something to the movie, what's the big deal? Okay, I'm totally kidding. It is weird and odd and it hasn't stopped creeping me out. I don't know who it's weirder for either, honestly. I mean, Sir Ben used to be sort of amazing (before he was in The Love Guru), and Mary-Kate has been annoying pretty much since she's been an adult. He's old and it's creepy for him to make out with someone so young, but she's gross. So what's worse, I ask you?

I'm sorry, were you expecting me to actually review the trailer? Well, Mary-Kate and Ben Kingsley are both mysteriously absent from it. Instead, it seems to focus on a dopey-looking kid looking for love (and sex) for the first time with a girl who changes his whole world. Oh, and it's set in the Nineties. That is pretty much all you're getting, but who cares? Mary-Kate Olsen totally makes out with Ben Kingsley in this movie.
