For a long time I’ve been attacking Matt Damon and saying how much I think he sucks and has changed. I don’t often give any reasons, though, and friends get frustrated and disagree with me saying things like “that’s ridiculous, it’s Affleck who sucks” or “What about The Bourne series, you have to admit those movies are awesome!”
I have to admit… those movies suck. It’s time to talk about why.
2011. 103 Minutes. Rated PG.
“If I’m a Muppet, then I’m a very manly Muppet.”
I don’t know about you, but I grew up watching The Muppet Show on Sunday nights. Pretty much everyone who was anyone guest-starred on the program, from Bob Hope and Carol Burnett to Debbie Harry and Steve Martin (side note: no guest star was ever on the show twice, although John Denver made it into more than one “special”). Everyone had a favorite character, be it Kermit or Rowlf or Janice or Scooter or Miss Piggy or Animal or the Swedish Chef. There was always music and silly comedy sketches, like the infamous “Mahna Mahna” song, and the unforgettable commentary from Statler and Waldorf.
I will talk a lot about Adaptation the film, and the idea of film adaptations. I will try to capitalize the movie title every time to keep this stuff straight though.

Adaptation wows me on so many different levels. This is one you need to watch every minute of, or you will just lose it. I’m going to try and do you all a solid and make it nice and simple. My mother (who is a fairly smart woman) handed me back this DVD last week after I let her borrow it and she said “I had to shut this off Peter, I couldn’t even keep it a little straight.” She is a large supporter of The Big Brown Chair so this post is inspired by her.
