You Know It's Going To Be Ugly

So I was on the money with the destruction tours. Now I, Slimbolala, oracle of all things predictable and crappy, look into my dingy crystal ball and see a new shadow looming on the horizon, Katrina: the Movie.*

Just think, a harrowing tale of disaster overcome by the triumphant human spirit: strong-jawed actors wading through chest deep waters, itsy starlets with bogus Southern accents, the traumatic scene where Grandma is washed away, the lead and the lady finding love on a rooftop. [shudder]

What do we give it? Six months? A year? Maybe it's already in the works (I'm not up on such things). You know it's going to happen, and you know it's going to be ugly.

* Or maybe just a lame, made-for-cable mini-series? Slimbolala can only predict the schlock, not the format of distribution.

  2. About the only thing I can hope for is that the heroine (played by Keisha Knight-Pulliam) ends the movie in an invented/wishful thinking epilogue by leading the entire population (all kinds of chocolate--from baking to white) of the City of New Orleans up to DC to camp out on the Mall until the George and Dick Show is drummed out of town.

    I mean, it wouldn't be any less "true" than any of the other stuff they'll put in.
