Today on CC2K we're looking back at some of our favorite articles from the Crapfest section. Our featured article is Lance Carmichael's legendary advance review of Ed Burns' immortal classic, The Groomsmen.
Edward Burns directs and stars in this wedding comedy, which finds a groom and his groomsmen pondering some big issues prior to the big day.”
No doubt all human language skulks away ashamed, tail between legs, as it throws itself on the rocks of The Groosmen and attempts to somehow describe the awesome, sublime experience of watching this movie, knowing that no combination of words – no matter how ingenious the writer – can possibly sum up even one minute of its screen time. Intellects far greater than my own would grow pale and silent when presented with the unenviable task of synopsization, and a string of totally sensible suicides–the only rational course for those attempting to follow in The Groomsmen’s seismic artistic wake – amongst our most sparkling literati would (and probably will) inevitably result. Rather than attempting to sum up the movie – which, again, is a duty even the Gods of Olympus would find a laughable impossibility – let me just describe the inevitable aftereffects the theatrical release of The Groomsmen will unleash on our world.
