- I am a him, not a her. I thought Mister Wompler would be a good hint, but all is forgiven.
- I know you were joking, but I would love to be a guest and can be reached on twitter in the .000001% chance you weren't kidding.

I knew getting that college education would pay off one day.

Just looked at his IMDB. Among large roles, that's about right. Off the top of my head, I would have said he's been really inactive during that time, but he's actually been steadily churning out a mix of flops, small roles, and completely forgettable movies. I guess he's always got that Sex and the City money to fall back on.

Deck the Halls trailer...my god. It just ran the entire gambit of obnoxious trailer soundtracks. Any one of them should be a huge red flag:
-Calm music--->record scratch (my monocle has popped out!)
-The Nutcracker Suite (zany antics!)
-Generic "badass" electric guitar (this means war!)
-"Hip" beats (we know how to get down with the kids)
-Music get unplugged (alternate version of record scratch)
-Characters screaming drowning out everything else
-"Hip" remix of classic song
Pitch meeting for this movie:
INT. CIGAR SHOP - DAY
A grizzled bear of a man chomps down on a bitchin Cuban stogie.
Ok, so it's National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but it's only the parts
about the lights and yuppie neighbors! Oh yeah, and none of the jokes
either. Fuckin' A!

Fuuuuuck. I can only do it in 5 minute chunks. Right off the bat the scene with him walking down the street greeting everyone with lame gag after lame gag. Only two and a half minutes in and I'm already saying, "Fuck this movie." The way he greets everyone reminded me of HDTGM's 88 Minutes episode with Pacino greeting everyone he sees by name.
Then Broderick gets home and his wife is the only attractive woman from Sex & the City. At exactly the 5 minute mark, he lays out a ton of flat exposition to her that's just summary of the previous 5 minutes (the entire movie up until now).
And that's the first 5 minute chunk check out. Fuck this movie. Merry Christmas.

Super ultra flat exposition, I dont think it could be any less expositiony. Its almost written like it was supposed to be a rousing speech, to get deep insight into his emotional commitment to the whole stupid christmas thing...but the person who wrote it never heard of emotions, and Broderick didn't care enough to add any (or was stopped from doing so, troll 2 style). So far my vibe from how this movie is going (also just in the first 5 minutes or so) is that the writer never heard anybody have a conversation with another living person before making this movie.
