When In Rome

          I once heard, there is nothing worse than an unfunny comedy. If that is true there is nothing worse than this movie. While the premise is original in it content, the pieces of this movie are not. It is made up of cliché gags, and tired old formulas. Whist only 91 minutes in lenght it grows tired quickly and wares on your almost immediately. 

The side characters intended to be funny are simply annoying and irritating. They never make the movie funny nor do they pull at your heartstrings. They in reality tend to tear at your groin. This movie is just a worn out excuse for a creative flick. The wonderful supporting cast of Danny DeVito, Angelica Huston and Don Johnson are simply wasted in this worthless film. 

This movie is best left in the Redbox, or on your Netflix queue. I enter each movie I see with an open mind. It was quickly slammed shut this morning. If you want to waste your time and money on a lame comedy then this is the pick for you. If you want some thing creative and funny then chose anther film.

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!
