    Why is this happening? (The Happening - SPOILERS)

    Don't see it

    Saw this movie over the weekend, this movie was absolutely horrible

    It was like the movie didn't know what to be, was it serious? was it a comedy?

    The "Cheese and Crackers" bit didn't help

    I found the main characters behavior to be weird, he sounded like a little kid the whole time, he was acting like a kid, his voice was weird

    The inside jokes "This is happening" , "Why is this happening?" didn't help either

    I was asking myself through the whole movie, why indeed is this happening

    The audience was laughing at all the stuff that was SUPPOSED to be serious in the movie, I was laughing right along with em

    This was a trainwreck of epic proportions, a waste of money (which apparently on the weekends is even higher than during the week at the theater we went to, ugh, so lots of wasted money)

    We are used to being fed sequel after sequel after remake after remake.

    Don't get me wrong, those are fun movies to watch but the ART of film is being lost. The stereotypic perfect leading man who is smooth, witty, handsome and quick thinking who always saves the day will not be found in this film.
    Nor will the overuse of incredible special effects, slashing and squirting blood and gore, erotic sex scenes, fast paced chases, or crude language.

    It is a "B" movie on the surface because of it's amazing simplicity, but by the end of the film you realize what it's actually all about. It's sad to see that so many people have completely missed it.
