In this wickedly funny book, Joe Queenan is back in the movie theater, heckling the stars, directors, producers -- and audiences -- that define today's film industry. With his "keen eye for hokum and bunk, fraud and pomposity" (Jonathan Yardley), Queenan takes on such lofty subjects as "The Remains of the Dazed" (an informed discussion of the Merchant Ivory duo's oeuvre) and "Hair Force" (a treatise on movie stars with "hideous, hilarious, or otherwise highly disruptive hairstyles"). Setting out to torment innocent moviegoers, America's "cynic laureate" (The Cleveland Free Times) is in top form -- and loving it -- in this fun-filled, hilarious new collection of tirades and escapades in the absurd world of celluloid.
