In imitating a clown, do we not become a clown?

This might just be the best non-review review I've ever seen!

I was just looking at this movie on the Netflix instant watch selections yesterday and thinking, hmmmm, this could be interesting!

I'm glad I now know better!

Thanks for enduring this in order to enlighten the world about its crappiness!

Haven't seen Ghost Game, but based on your fine pictorial primer, I'm electing the First Jerk on the Left as my favorite jerk in the world. Maybe it's the overbite; maybe it's the single lick of hair sticking out of his jerk-head...

And the entire next bit had me in stitches. I'm going to go pet a cat in honor of this review even if I have to break into my neighbour's house to do it.

Sounds like a ghost version of Jumanji. Kinda like Boo-manji, amirite?

Matango, I think your question requires thought...and since thought requires time, I believe we can add "ponder this question" to the list of things to do INSTEAD of watching Ghost Game.

What makes a clown? Is it just the wig and nose? Or is it deeper than that?

"Get out of here, Enigma!"

Awesome.

It would appear that stick figure Stacie is marrying a fake clown, the one from the preceding picture. So, my question is; if you marry a clown, and find out they're an impostor, is this grounds for divorce?

Gotta say; Pee'd a little. I can own it.

However, your substitute offerings didn't really drive home just how bad the movie was because they're all AWESOME!

Geez, witches, people would be less afraid of you if you didn't do things like inventing ghost games.
I feel a real fondness for the jerk with the hat.

The essence of a clown is in its appearance and demeanor. A clown must either be happy or pretend to be so, but the clown is only the surface. A clown can only exist in the performance. The clown must be observed and know that he is being observed. Certain persons for whom a clown might feel particularly intense passions may render a clown unable to perform and thus destroy the clown qua clown. The person behind the clown will continue to exist, but the clown will never be a clown again to those who have seen the mask fall.

A troubling takeaway from the this analysis is that it indicates that there is no such thing as a "sad" clown. The term "sad clown" is oxymoronic. These performers should be known as "Clowns of Lies."

I thought this was a review of Black Waters of Echo's Pond ... which I tried to wipe from my mind about 90 minutes before I left the theater.

Can we dance a jig while petting a cat? Preferably in a clown costume. :)
