The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Wow, it seems that a real live actress played the title character in the new major motion picture "Simone". My comment?

No shit.

It was a pretty pathetic stab by the Hollywood hype machine to pass this crap off. Not that several people walking out of the theaters won't get suckered in anyway. But how dumb is it to try to pass something as questionable as this off, when there are so many sources that will jump all over an item like this to check whether it's true or not?

What's more, even the director couldn't keep his big fat mouth shut about the supposed "secret", more than a week before the film opened in theaters.
