When a movie is slated for release that I really want to see, secretly, deep inside, I recite a mantra: "please don't suck.....please don't suck.....please don't suck...."

It would kill me to have a bomb of a movie from Christopher Guest.

I'm one of the few who saw his debut - the Big Picture (a fair to middling film) - starring that six degrees guy, Kevin Bacon.  (and that is two Bacon references in two is it two degree of separation?)

Guest really has done well with his oeuvre, not a bad one in the bunch.

So in a way, that says a lot for the new Mascots - which is on Netflix in a month. But on the other hand - in the back of my head - I think 'law of averages'.

A movie about mascots....because I suppose one about Plushies is a no-no.

As it is, most of the Guest regulars are there, save maybe Michael McKean, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara and Larry Miller.

And yay....Parker Posey is.

Please don't suck.

I hadn't heard about this one. Being another C. Guest fan, I'd be most interested in viewing it sometime.

I saw this preview yesterday. I can't wait!

I'm a big Guest fan too and am seriously considering signing up for a month's membership of Netflix just to see this film!
