We return from our extended Independence Day break with one of our dumbest movies yet, Sucker Punch, which combines the attention span of a toddler with the sophisticated sexuality of a 13-year-old. Meanwhile, Dan reveals some disturbing personal cartoon magazine-related habits, Elliott discovers a new love for felines, and Stuart inspires our readers to raise their voices about his voice.

This was my favorite performance from Dan–solid McCoy material from wire to wire. Dynamite stuff from Stuart and Elliott as well, just wanted to give Dan a sucker-punch of kudos. That movie sounds like a real pile.
Too bad about Dan’s pizza.
Oh, and you know the plot is bad when Elliott says “ANYWHOOOOO” that many times.
I was sort of hoping that the Cobra Commander costume would be of the bag-over-head design. Oh well. It’s cool regardless.
