Tom Hanks, Movie STAR! made$13 mil at the BO this weekend in a movie he and Julia Roberts starred in proving once again that Simba's logic and parameters are infallible.

KSK is bored without Peter King to pick on, so they have turned their sites on this particular Simmons column:

Drew's great at ripping Simmons.

Sidenote: Timberlake? Really? He's a movie star but Reynolds isn't? Alright, Billy.

Well of course! He was like the #3 or 4 guy in The Social Network which made lots of money. Of course the lead for that movie is on Bill's list of not quite movie stars... It's best not to try to think about it.

Drew is generally great at ripping Simmons, but I didn't find this particularly impressive. And yes, Bill's analysis is wildly inconsistent, but to try to use Old School as an example of why Luke Wilson is actually a movie star...if there is a singular case of a lead actor being blown the fuck out of the water by his supporting cast it's that.

O HO HO!!!! Burrrrrned ya, Luke Wilson! Way to completely ruin movies like “Old School” and “Bottle Rocket,” which were actually good movies that you were perfectly fine in.


He wasn't saying Luke Wilson was a movie star, just that not every Luke Wilson movie failed AND failed specifically because of him. His examples: Old School which was/is hilarious, didn't fail/suck, and Luke Wilson was good in; Bottle Rocket which I've never seen but presume that again, it didn't suck/fail and he was ok to good in it.

Here's where we disagree. I didn't think Luke Wilson was good in Old School. He didn't submarine the movie, but didn't really make anything out of it either. I agree with his basic point, and I love Bottle Rocket, but no one is coming out of Old School quoting or imitating Luke Wilson.

if im cooking frozen pizza in the oven, how long should i preheat it. box says preheat to 375F but for how long?

Apr 25
the opportunity cost of knowing how to preheat an oven is pretty puny compared to anything else

True love is hard to find, sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show ready to double team your girlfriend...

Preferably straight men less annoying than Luke Wilson. I think he's better off playing a guy who's slightly unhinged (like in all the Wes Anderson movies). IMO, his value over replacement actor in Old School or Idiocracy is not very high, despite how much I enjoyed those movies.

I seem to be in the minority but I actually thought this was one of his better columns. I thought he voiced some interesting ideas that I had never thought of, but for the most part, agree with.

Boooooooo!!!



I liked the Drew breakdown. He should rip every Simmons column. That would bring me great joy.

I think DtF is Simmons. NBA expert and Simba apologist.

DtF knows too much about the NBA to be Phil "OMZergs! Blake Griffin! Kevin Love! Rondo! The Secret! Dennis Johnson! Basketball Jesus" Simpson.

He does? disagree. He gets together every Thursday night with friends to make fun of Cheryl Miller and Craig Sager. Also, he (I think) didnt pick the Heat to do much in the East Playoffs(I DID).
