"Clerks II" too smutty for Siegel

Pun-hungry movie critic, Joel Siegel, stormed out of a press screening of Kevin Smith's "Clerks II" earlier this week reports the New York Post.

"Time to go!" roared Siegel to his fellow critics. "First movie I've walked out of in 30 [bleeping] years!"

The scene that sent the "Good Morning America" wordsmith running to the exit involves the allusion of a woman having sex with a donkey.

Smith fires back on his MySpace blog. The tirade is titled "A dick in a mustache is still a dick":

Getting a bad review from Siegel is like a badge of honor. This is the guy who stole his mustachioed-critic shtick from Gene Shalit years ago, and still refuses to give it back. This is a guy who seemingly prides himself on his own nyuk-nyuk wordplay. For 'Pirates 2,' he made us all titter with 'Yo, Ho, Ho and a Bottle of Fun' . . . He made us squeal with delight when he wrote, 'Wheelie Good Time for "Cars." ' I mean, Fozzy [bleeping] Bear laughs at this guy."

Sometimes enough smutty humor is enough. What makes a good comedy is not potty humor. Perhaps this critic has a standard of what is good in a movie and what is not. I don't like watching smut either. Does that mean that I'm out of touch? Personally, I wouldn't even give that movie the time of day merely for the innuendos. Whatever happened to good story lines and good writers. They almost seem nonexistent in todays movies. (there are still a few but not as prominent as poor ones.)

Sex with a mule? Come on. That's sick.
