Later today, I’ll post my reviews of this weekend’s new motion picture releases. One movie, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” is written by and stars Jason Segel. It’s absolutely disgusting (and stupid), and features very graphic/explicit dialogue straight from a bad porn movie. There are multiple gratuitous, up-close shots of Segel in full frontal nudity. I almost thought I was watching the “Deep Throat” sequel.
This morning, I heard an unduly gushing interview with Segel on the Detroit-based morning radio show, Drew & Mike. While the hosts verbally drooled over him, Segel told them the graphic details about how he had to worry about keeping his penis flaccid, because otherwise the movie would have gotten an NC-17 rating (which it well deserved).
While, now, guess what? This schleppy full-frontal “model,” writer of very graphic and disgusting dialogue, and graphic discusser flaccidity versus the erect is . . .
WRITING “THE MUPPET MOVIE”!
What the heck was Disney thinking? Keep your kids away. Having this pervert write the next Muppet movie is absurd.
Just because you have a muppet named “Miss Piggy,” doesn’t mean you need an actual pig writing the script. Somebody tell the Disney execs that Kermit is a frog character for kids, not a horny toad.
Oh, and by the way, there are Muppets in this awful, perverted movie, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Forget the next Muppet movie.
