Bad Film Prediction

All traces of the evil space virus have vanished, but I have to admit, my trip into town the other day didn't aid it's departure.

Anyway, I've been watching a lot of Comedy Central on TV to pass the time, and the fact that the prime time slots are sponsored by the film "The Men Who Stare At Goats", is rather forcefully shoved down you throat. The sponsorship consists of someone telling you of the fact with a random clip from the film.

Now, I may be going out on a limb here, but I'm going to predict that this film is going to be bad in that way that makes you want to rip your arm off just so you can throw something at the screen.

I've read the book and the clips seem to make up the sum of all that can be funny in the film, so I'm wondering what the other 90 minutes of screen time will consist of.

The problem is that I'm so convinced of this fact, that I'm going to have to go and see it to make sure, which I know is going to be painful.

I feel like I'm in a catch 22 situation (well, not quite but I'm sure you know what I'm getting at).

I shall report back soon either in pain from the experience, or eating humble pie.
