    Palin Documentary Flops With Both Audiences and Critics

    I love it. Righties attacking the source as the "lamestream media" using "gotcha" journalism in 3 2 1....

    The Undefeated, a documentary about Sarah Palin, opened on Friday to virtually empty theaters and dismissive reviews from even the more objective film critics.

    The Atlantic describes the film as "framing its subject as a Christ-like savior of an America thatís lost its fiscal and spiritual way," and The Village Voice calls it "less a documentary than a glowing two-hour infomercial for Sarah Palin, Presidential Candidate To-Be." The Undefeated currently carries a 34 approval rating on movie review aggregator MetaCritic.com.

    The film opened on 10 screens across the United States and The Atlantic's Conor Friedersdorf reports that during the showing he attended in Orange County, Calif., the audience consisted of just him, two women who left after 20 minutes, and a couple who came to make out in the back of the theater, but departed before the film was over.

    Still, Palin may make it to a podium come awards season. In an interview with Los Angeles Times, John Wilson, founder of the Razzie awards, which honor the worst in film, thinks Palin could emerge victorious. "She's the political equivalent of what the Razzies are all about," Wilson says. "And she's hysterically funny if you don't stop and think, Oh, my God, she could've been vice president!"

    Her delusion is embarrassing enough without documenting it...what is she thinking?

    I thought the entire concept was dumb. If you are going to do a documentary on the Tea Party movement, document the movement.

    Whatever studio exec came up with the name 'The Undefeated' for this movie and deciding to release it the same weekend as Harry Potter should be rewarded for his excellent timing and sense of irony. The only thing that could have possibly saved this piece of crap is if she had a nude cameo in the Deathly Hallows Part II making out with Voldemort, and he turned it into a horcrux out of pity.

    Not to mention a few sequels, a spin off television show, and re-released IMAX 3D version. And the beauty of it is that even if liberal Hollywood gets a braindead chimpanzee to faceroll a keyboard and uses that garbage as a script, it won't be anywhere near as bad as this piece of crap Palin released, i'm sure. In fact, I don't know why the people behind 'The Undefeated' didn't secure a braindead chimp to produce a script for her film. There were plenty of them that supported her during the last election.

    /Ultrapartisanship off

    Seriously, though, who thought it would be a good idea to make a stupid movie like this? She had her bus tour, she scored points with the anti-intellectuals by not knowing a thing about the history of Paul Revere, and gosh darnit, the far right really like her ideology. With those folks secured, she could start pushing for the moderate vote next year. And by "pushing for the moderate vote", I mean releasing a few semi-nude pics. Not revealing enough to rile up the base, of course, but showing just enough flesh to ignite the fire of patriotism in every red-blooded, heterosexual, American male who can punch a button in the voting machine.
