The Rock As Johnny Bravo!?!

Whoa, mama.

In the history of bad ideas, this ranks right up there with New Coke, Crystal Pepsi, that Pepsi tastes like Lemon Pledge, and...umm....other beverages I don't particularly care for. Yeah, I know that he's getting kudos for doing comedy in The Rundown, yadda yadda yadda, but taking on a live-action Johnny Bravo is whole different ballgame. It simply cannot be done.

On the other hand, I don't really see who could play the role. I'm still scarred by the image of Patrick Warburton as The Tick. The whole thing comes down to this: Don't make live action movies out of cartoons.

I think every studio head who is considering greenlighting a project like this should be forced to watch a back to back loop of cinematic dreck like The Flintstones, Scooby Doo, George Of The Jungle, and Rocky And Bullwinkle.

Can I smell what The Rock is cooking? Yes, and it's eerily similar to what I'd imagine a whiff of the bathroom in Trainspotting would smell like.

Obviously, I'm not trying to re-invent the movie blog wheel here. I'm just never lacking in opinions about movies, pop culture, news, and other assorted hoohah. And my mailman has put a restraining order on me, so here's my place to vent.
