I mean seriously, I hear some good things and I likes the horror so what gives? No DVD release date? Sure hope the stuff I've read about this film being released next year isn't true since we all know it has had some limited screenings!
Dec. 22, 2008, 12:40 a.m. CST
but if it gives Micheal Dourghty exposure enough to release Trick r treat so be it

Can you imagine the amount of foot ware THESE bitches are going to go through? Or do they remove their strappy numbers before transmogrifying? ARE WE NOT WOMEN?? OR ARE WE LICHE...oh, hey, check out those...wow...OPEN-toed...PERFECT!! Do you guys know any rich, single, male wolves? Yeah...me neither...sigh...grrrrr...
Dec. 22, 2008, 12:51 a.m. CST
Seriously. Use some verbs.
Dec. 22, 2008, 1:05 a.m. CST
In this movie they turn into bitches once in a while. In sex and the city they are bitches on screen all the time.
Dec. 22, 2008, 1:32 a.m. CST
why do they call her Lassie?...AROOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Dec. 22, 2008, 2:25 a.m. CST
this is why i could never been a screen writer...i cant think like an idiot
Dec. 22, 2008, 3:06 a.m. CST
Poor guy. If I were Mike Dougherty I'd try to make an extended pilot that works really well as a standalone TV movie, or even go Mulholland Drive and make it good enough to convert into a real movie.

Dec. 22, 2008, 3:26 a.m. CST
anyone else think they'll have trouble getting the show to air with that title?
Dec. 22, 2008, 3:32 a.m. CST
Dougherty said he was already thinking of alternative titles, just in case.
Dec. 22, 2008, 3:44 a.m. CST
... then Sex and the City + Wolf. Copycat.
Dec. 22, 2008, 3:46 a.m. CST
Let's do another: Friends + Dracula, The Simpsons + The Omen, MASH + Friday the 13th, Sesame Street + A Nightmare on Elm Street - Lol, we have a title, even "A Nightmare on Sesame Street". I copyright that right now.

I've been waiting for them to mix the Sex and the City formula with other shit! So one or more will fall in love with a wolf hunter. Also, expect some sort of joke, like, "I'm not a cougar, I'm a wolf!" or "You're right, I am a bitch. A bitch is a female dog."
Dec. 22, 2008, 5:42 a.m. CST
I just remember Pepper Ann and that was way better than expected!

I can't wait for those round-table discussions about how chocolate is better than wolf sex. This show is going to be a hit with the ladies. You know, because all girls are fucking brain dead.

before they start making shitty "time of the month" jokes about being fucking werewolves! This already sucks so much it makes me weep. After the defilement of vampires by Twilight, and now this garbage, I'm sure they're gonna keep doing this and soon and we'll have such touching, monster-filled dreck like "Haunted Curves" and "Grey's Anatomy(More Visible Thanks To Decaying Zombie Flesh!)"

<p>Do they think anyone is going to watch the show because they named it Bitches? The best thing would be if they had a crossover with Supernatural where they were all killed in the first five minutes then the Winchester boys investigate how this series ever made it to air.</p>

... and it still makes no sense. At least when Variety makes no sense, it rhymes or something.

sides of a pair of dice, then tossed into a new idea. Shake 'em up in your hand, toss 'em on the board, let 'em settle . . . Sex and the City meets Wolf! These dice were used by that kid who wrote Eragon. "Star Wars and . . . Dragonslayer."
Dec. 22, 2008, 7:41 a.m. CST
so they'll already have the faint mustache, pre-transformation. Save some money.
Dec. 22, 2008, 7:49 a.m. CST
And now, I realize there's nothing interesting here at all. So, Herc, I tip my cap to you for making me click on a story I would normally ignore. Well played, but this does not end here!

Really brilliant. A show based on a fucking pun.

"Bitches"? I don't see Fox letting this hit their primetime sked with that title. The PTC will be all over Fox for them to change it to something even MORE lame...and Fox will bend. <p> "X2" was okay...Supes Returns was average...and Pepper Dennis was UNWATCHABLE, even with Rebecca Romijn and Brooke Burns (the blonde one from Dog Eat Dog...Not the brunette from Wild On E!/DWTS) in it. <p> How does COMBINING all these influences make this concept sound any better? <p> Start casting the "Bitches" and we can talk.
Dec. 22, 2008, 9:21 a.m. CST
Sounds like an Interesting concept But if it is going to be on Fox? Chances are that it is going to be cancelled wither after a few episodes or after just one season...which is typical of that Network (Rarely does it EVER give a series a proper chance..it's history is rife with many examples of shows that could have been great if given the chance to grow). To bad it isn't on HBO or Showtime...then the show could not only have incredible Hotties...but also gratuitous AND much appreciated female nudity and sex scenes to enjoy and oogle over :)

Screw Dougherty. He's a scumbag.

i'm sure it will be top notch. maybe as awesome as that old show Werewolf!
Dec. 22, 2008, 12:21 p.m. CST
Or maybe it was "Cunts" I keep getting them confused.

'Twould be a shame if it was changed. <br><br> I gotta say that I like the premise...and we really ought to trust the judgment of the guy behind TRICK 'R TREAT, don't you think? <br><br> Also...PAUL BLART: MALL COP looks far less stupid than BRIDE WARS. That is all.

How long before we have a show about some well hung bitches? Not that there's anything wrong with that...I don't judge, I don't judge! Is it me or is there something twisted yet funny about the title of this talkback?
Dec. 22, 2008, 11:58 p.m. CST
BITCHES sounds like something Fox would run between BEANS BAXTER and MR. PRESIDENT.

I've been waiting years for that one...
Dec. 23, 2008, 1:09 p.m. CST
"Are they going to turn based upon menstrual cycle?" <p>AHA! Instead of turning based on the lunar cycle! HAHA! So clever! <p>Except wait... oh, yeah... lunar cycles and menstrual cycles... are the same cycle. *rolls eyes* <p><p>$50 says this is all a joke. I mean the show, not jmyoung666's comment.
Dec. 23, 2008, 11:41 p.m. CST
That is all.
