Movie Spoiler - Men Who Stare at Goats

George Clooney takes time out from vilifying George Bush in George W. Bush Battles Jesus Christ and lobbying the Bush Administration for aid to Darfur to portray Lyn Cassady in Men Who Stare at Goats. Cassady uses his telekinetic powers to advance the plot for 94 minutes. The world doesn't get saved, but Clooney finds yet another vehicle for his dreamy mien.

It's generally a bad thing when your wife abandons you for your boss, but few of us find ourselves in a war zone attempting to compensate. Ewan McGregor plays Bob Wilton in just such a predicament. Somehow Wilton hooks up with super trooper Cassady. The two embark on a series of road adventures worthy of Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin.

A desert is a lonely empty place. Imagine a huge sandbox as big as New Jersey but with more redeeming social value. Random wandering in a desert usually results in death, or at least really bad sunburn. Our heroes manage to run into a seemingly endless stream of old friends, old foes, and mysterious transdimensional epic mirages. Imagine what they could have accomplished with an actual plan in mind. These guys should look for Jimmy Hoffa next time.

No goats were harmed in the making of this film. Unfortunately, one emu was emotionally scarred.

Men Who Share their Coats: Highly trained undercover agent Lyn Cassady uses his telekinetic powers to increase federal funding for homeless shelters.

Men Who Sow Wild Oats: Secret Agent Lyn Cassady sets sail on a singles-only cruise.

Men Who Don't Take Notes: 007 Lyn Cassady moonlights as an adjunct instructor at a community college.

Hi, Nicomp - I can't top Men Who Glare at Stoats - that was a stroke of genius. But how about:

Men Who Bare Their Throats - a treatise on laryngectomies

Men Who Jeer at Croats - a study of ethnic hatred

Men Who Steer the Boats - the lowdown on ship captains.

Thanks for the laughs. You're as funny as me with my Crazy Law hubs.

I won't give one dime to a George Clooney movie so he can spread his leftest agenda - he's quite outspoken as you noted - about the Bush administration. But I'll try to catch this when it comes on HBO. Your review was - I'm sure - far more entertaining than the movie will be! LOL! Thanks for the good laugh!
