To take a five minute Saturday Night Live Skit and Turn it in to a full length film 89-minute film is a challenge. At times it works like in Wayne’s World. This is one of those times it did not work however. The entire film was filled with tired old clichés and overly drawn out poorly written comedy gags and clichés. The plot if any was not made apparent other than it is the exploits of a woman named “Sister Mary Gallagher” put into a Catholic School and forced to reap the consequences. The deplorable acting and aggravating situation were enough to make this former Christian college film reviewer want to throw himself in traffic on RT 202! If you are desperate for entertainment then see this film. If you want to see a movie with an ounce of intelligence or a sparkle of light then add another film to your Netflix Queue. Grade F

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
