You’ve probably been anticipating the news of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival‘s first all-around bad movie, with reports of mass walkouts and ritual suicide. Well, all that waiting has finally paid off: The Hollywood Reporter is, um, reporting that the Al Pacino/Tracy Morgan cop thriller The Son of No One is, you know, awful. There were a lot of industry reps and the like from various studios in attendance, and the article says:
Some of them, however, were gone well before the end credits. In addition, enough regular audience members left early for one observer to describe it as an “exodus.”
The negative response went beyond the walkouts. One viewer’s attempt to begin applause after the lights came up drew almost no takers.
God, I’d love to see an interview with that one guy who started clapping. Maybe it was Tracy Morgan. Maybe he was shirtless.
