Sleeper Cell(uloid)


"The story is almost Shakespearean in the warring of the families and the great love story between the (couple)," producer Marvin Minoff told Variety. His partners in this one are Lawrence Bender, Mike Farrell and Kevin Brown. "It starts off so beautifully and then ends so chaotically."

Ugh. Coming soon: Terry Schiavo - the Movie.

There isn't much to say about this that isn't simply bemoaning the ongoing vulture-culture that is the media. This is sick; movie-of-the-week, tabloid-style exploitation. And Michael Schiavo should be ashamed of himself. I understand his desire to write a book - profit aside, it's a chance to vent after years of intense scrutiny, criticism and questioning. But selling the movie-rights? That's just horrible.

The only good to come of this whole mess has been the ability for Ms. Schiavo to rest in peace. Everything else is a circus - a creepy midnight circus where the lions look starved, the clowns touch you inappropriately, and the bearded lady offers sucky-sucky behind the ferris wheel.

I don't like the regular circus, you can imagine how I feel about your creepy (hopefully) made-up circus.

This is just sad, sad, sad ... Bender used to be a true artist, not a maudlin hack
