Movie News Follow-Up

Remember the Best Movie News Ever? With some assistance from the shadowy and mysterious Codename V, I have managed to obtain an advance copy of the poster:

Annie Dice Clay?

LGM may have inadvertently hit upon something:

Project Runway is mildly upset today that no one else appreciates the deconstructive, feminist comic genius of Andrew “Dice” Clay. Having taken my past critics somewhat to heart on the ethics of driving up Althouse’s site traffic, I’m not going to link to her — but here she is, quoting herself on what she evidently wrote about the Diceman last year:

The first time I saw Andrew Dice Clay, I took him to be a brilliant critic of masculinity. Then everybody just got mad at him and made him go away.

And ever since, the world has been punished immensely for this senseless cultural assault. Had Clay not been wrongly dismissed as a talentless, monotonous hack — instead of the billiant satirist of manly foibles, cleverly disguised as cheap jokes about analingus and yeast infections — his career might not have been unfustly cut short by Ford Fairlane. Now he’s trying to make a comeback, Althouse tells us, but it appears the world is still unprepared for [his] comic stylings.

So, let’s see… Ann Althouse, a “nonpartisan,” “feminist” law professor who writes like an epically obtuse sixth-grade Republican shill, laments that no-one appreciates how funny it is when someone dons the persona of an unevolved right-wing moron.

Is she trying to tell us something?

Well, if the media are going to dredge up dirt on candidates’ personal lives, it’s nice to see Republicans getting equal time:

Rudy Giuliani’s shaky family life is being hit with new tremors, as his son Andrew hit the interview circuit confirming that he is estranged from his father – and that the root of the tension is Giuliani’s current wife, Judith.”There’s obviously a little problem that exists between me and his wife,” Andrew Giuliani, 21, told The New York Times. “And we’re trying to figure that out. But as of right now it’s not working as well as we would like.”


[T]he relationship is icy enough that Andrew told The News he would not be campaigning for his father and would instead chase his goal of becoming a pro golfer.

“No, my summer schedule is filled with golf, so I would not have the time to do that,” he said in an interview with The News last week….

Coming at the outset of an increasingly combative presidential race, Andrew Giuliani’s comments are sure to refocus the spotlight on the ex-mayor’s already messy family history.

The thrice-married Giuliani divorced his first wife, Regina Peruggi, after 14 years. Later, infamously, he chose a live TV interview to tell Andrew’s mother, TV personality Donna Hanover, that he was divorcing her.


Those with knowledge of the situation said the children don’t like to be around her and that Giuliani, rather than spend time separately with his kids, has chosen to stick by his new wife’s side.

As a result, the former mayor rarely spends time with his children and has missed major events in their lives, including many of Andrew’s major golf tournaments and more recent school theatrical productions in which Caroline has starred, sources said.

Indeed, one person said Giuliani learned of his daughter’s Harvard admission by reading about it in The News.

Now all we need is some speculation on how often Rudy ‘n’ Judi have sex. Come on, Media, let’s bring it on home.
