Reviewed: Relentless Man of the Year DVD previews on TV

It was already too much this summer when the stupid movie came out in theaters and they advertised it mercilessly. But now it’s time for the DVD release, and yet again the commercials are inescapable. (“It’s like they are trying to convince themselves it isn’t bad,” Joe said.) I don’t know what exactly it is about them that makes me visibly cringe when they come on, especially when I’m actually trying to watch something good on TV like The Office, but I think it might have something to do with that one joke showcased in the preview—Robin Williams, standing at a podium, says, “I did not have sex with that woman. I wanted to…”—in surely what is an attempt to entertain every old lady in the country. Give it up, Williams. This is almost as bad as the previews for Wild Hogs with those other two aging comedians who haven’t done a good movie in years (William H. Macy, what were you thinking?)

0 Stars.
