"Doctors cost a lot more money than books earn and she could be totally wiped out" without the aid of these two government programs. Ayn took the bail out even though Ayn "despised government interference and felt that people should and could live independently… She didn’t feel that an individual should take help."
Quasi-related, but there’s no more Ask button on your Tumblr =( What are your thoughts on Observe and Report?
Hm, there isn’t? Weird. THERE SHOULD BE. I just checked and it should be functional. TRY AGAIN.
Anyway, Observe and Report was terrible when Seth Rogen was onscreen and wonderfully twisted when he wasn’t. I’m still shocked that Hill’s screenplay was allowed to be filmed as it was. Rogen’s name and momentum after Knocked Up and Superbad obviously had a lot to do with its production, but unfortunately his presence is what makes it so unbearable. He doesn’t act so much as he does voices, and he has exactly two: “Seth Rogen” and “Seth Rogen showing restraint while yelling.” In O&R, he turned a complicated, three-dimensional, regularly despicable anti-hero into, well, “Seth Rogen showing restraint while yelling.”
Which sucks. It totally sucks. Every other element of Observe and Report suggests the potential for wonderfully bizarre (and difficult?) black comedy.
As for who should have taken the lead role? I don’t know. Maybe a schlubbed-up Ben Foster?
