Remember that PortaPotty Movie? GULLIBLE'S TRAVELS - well got some corrections to give ya!

Hey folks, Harry here... I got contacted by folks associated with the project that were Grade-A pissed off at the lousy sub-standard job that Variety gave the coverage of the logline. In fact, I've been told, "The logline in VARIETY is EXTREMELY WRONG." The key thing that Variety fucked up was in leaving out the word, "believes" - you see the main character "believes" he is traveling through time. And while you read this script you have to keep guessing whether or not he really is traveling through time. Also - apparently the character has NO GIRLFRIEND in the script... which Variety claimed he did. Oh... and the Port-A-Potty scene is about two pages long and is NOT the device being used to transport him - as Variety noted. Bottom line this is about a guy who BELIEVES he is traveling through time, and it's called GULLIBLE'S TRAVELS. The rest of the Variety description is wholly inaccurate. My source wouldn't give much more away about the film, as... well they just wanted to make sure we realized that VARIETY didn't know what they were talking about - and they wanted to make sure we knew this wasn't a port-a-potty adventure. Doesn't that make you feel better?

    So all those movies we talked about...

    by Childe Roland

    ...that weren't about toilets but featured them in memorable scenes were actually apt benchmarks by which to judge this? Because, based even on this updated premise, I'm thinking this movie may fail to live up to most of them.

  • Feb. 1, 2007, 4:45 p.m. CST

    Well, I'm glad we cleared THAT up!

    by RetroActive

    Thanks, Harry...for another major breaking news story hear at AICN. As you were people!

    Honestly, a little.

    by Novaman5000

    Because that variety thing made it sounds fucking awful.

    Thank goodness!

    I thought this was going to be an idiotic big-budget comedy about a moron we're supposed to sympathize with (probably played by Stiller, Sandler, or a Wilson), filled with inane topical pop culture jokes and an overemphasis on port-a-potties. But we can all rest easy now; that port-a-potty part was wrong.

  • Feb. 1, 2007, 5:57 p.m. CST

    Yes, but the question that hasn't been answered...

    by Uncapie

    ...will he be wearing his "Michael Myers Shit Mask(Registered Trademark.)" in the "believeable" time travelling port-a-potty?

    I just got off the phone with Del Toilet

    by RKDN Del Sol

    He and I are like bathers. He and I both agree that this movie will be like scat, and I'm not talkin Ella Fitzgerald, baby.

  • Feb. 1, 2007, 6:32 p.m. CST

    so who's going to make the movie where..

    by Amy Chasing

    a guy really does travel through time in a porta-potty looking for his girlfriend? maybe dreamworks can now that they've lost aardman. anyway, I'm sure it'll get news coverage on the Wii news channel - film at 11.

  • Feb. 1, 2007, 7:44 p.m. CST

    LOL @ RKDN Del Sol

    by Proman1984

    Seriously, I don't care whar the dude believes. A toilet time travel story is a toilet time travel story.

    I'd see a "Port-A-Potty Adventure"

    by Veraxus

    Because I'll sit through anything once... unless it's Chicago. Fuck that abomination of a movie.

  • Feb. 1, 2007, 9:38 p.m. CST

    It was worth the misunderstanding

    by instant_karma

    Just so we could get the 'turdis' and 'Dr Poo' jokes. <p> Good work whoever you were.
