Ha ha! (I mean, eww!)
I saw A History of Violence
with Emma-Jean on the weekend. It was laugh out loud violent, with cuts to 'here's one the special effects department prepared earlier' shots. "Funniest movie I have seen in a long time" said one patron on his way out. (If you're squeamish, close your eyes when you hear a gunshot and open them again when you hear the audience laugh.)Backstage.
I suspect the intergalactic juggling act will not be seen in the autumn season. The issue of what the Koozbanians and the Martians want to throw and catch has not been resolved, but the audience wouldn't know the difference anyway. The big problem is the barker who describes everything being juggled as "poor little tom kittens". However, the powers that be are currently distracted by the fuzzy aliens and may give the act a green light; or the barker may learn his lines by tomorrow.
