Funny, funny stuff.. duff of the cap here

Some of the most hilarious writing these days is found in theater reviews. For instance, try not to snort milk through your nose as you read these reviews of Halle Berry's Catwoman:

"Kitty Litter" - NY Post

"Meow Nix" - Village Voice

"Risible yarn about a mousy underachiever rendered superhuman by arcane pussy power plays like a Lifetime movie on estrogen overdose, barely held together by a script that should have been tossed out with the kitty litter." - Variety

"Catwoman, which opens tomorrow nationwide, achieves something I would not have thought possible. It made me think back fondly on Garfield." - NYT

"Bad kitty! Catwoman is a sad excuse to dress Halle Berry in leather." - NY Daily News

"Catwoman is quite literally an episode of Melrose Place thrown onto the big screen, injected with comic-book cliches and random, choppily edited action set pieces for good measure." - AICN

"Catwoman sometimes feels as if it's been pieced together from a dozen or so Ally McBeal parodies trying to pose as hip-hop videos." - Slant
