Apparently Dave Willis does the same thing with his toys. Heeeee.

Oh, and y'all remember when I went crazy and decided to do a five-part review of "An American Carol". Well, a little while ago, Noel Murray from the Onion AV Club subjected herself to the commentary.

What's the most fascinating to me is that they had a liberal writer.

Friedman, whom Farley describes as "to the left of Castro," apparently signed onto this project because he likes to get paid to riff, and he can't stand Michael Moore. Referring to the public response to the movie, Friedman quips, "I said to my mom, 'I guess I'm the black sheep of the family now.' And she said, 'No, you do a lot of good things too."

One of the more offensive scenes in the movie is the slavery scene, IMO, because it implies that the bad part about slavery is that it's embarrassing to white people and not that it's THE CRUEL SUBJUGATION OF OTHER HUMAN BEINGS. This is not surprising.

And they thank David Alan Grier, whose presence they believe gave them "cover" in the plantation scene. Friedman: "Even Sinbad turned us down." Zucker: "And Frank Caliendo. Again." Friedman: "We were going to put him in blackface."

Shit, you guys. [facepalm!]

Anyway, read the whole thing. It's something.
