Me: What DVD are putting on?
Him: 2001 a space oddity.
Me: Don't you mean 'Space Odyssey'?
Him: No, no, it's a parody version.
Him: Its really good, it has Dick Van Dyke.
At this point I left the room.
Here are three reasons why. I'm sure you can think of more.
- I haven't seen the original 2001: a space odyssey, and don't want to taint my possible enjoyment of it.
- The parody version is probably rubbish by comparison. Or just rubbish anyway.
- The Van Dyke name has tarnished by Dicks son Shane Van Dyke, who last year wrote, directed and stared in Titanic II. And it isn't as if he was Marlon Brando to begin with.
I have it on good authority (from someone that actually watched it) that it is shit.
I instead watched 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace'. A much better use of my time, I'm sure you'll agree.
