And i've been on this tangent before. And i'm not going to go on it again but i mean i am just so hard pressed to find a really good comedy and i'm not talking about episodic shows those seem to be fine right. You have shits creek. You have a bunch of other things those work. But i'm talking about a movie. I think last comedic movie. I gave a chance to was bad trip with Andrei and i just to me. Comedy isn't let's be zany in his crazy as we can. And let's piece a movie together because that's what the jackass guys. Did i mean supposedly bad trip was supposed to have a storyline in a plot. It was a tough ride through Literally through that movie. It was very difficult to watch it. I think if you watch eric. Andre talk show. It's one of the best things i've ever seen on television. So it's like. How do you go from the genius of the eric. Andre talk show too bad trip. It really was a bad trip. I mean it was tough to finish. And i usually don't have very much difficulty finishing movies but i will say that. What makes the pulling dynamite. Really really special is has a wonderful story. it's it touches your heart. You can't stop laughing every freaking character in the movie so likable you walk away feeling really good. I mean when was last time you really felt like that about comedy. Okay you know. Take away the last year because you know. The movie theaters were weren't up to capacity but in a normal movie going year. When was the last time you were at a theaters.
