Movie Review (?) - "Of Mice and Men" (1939)
It's Mick from "Rocky" and the Wolf Man paired up in the wackiest roadtrip movie you've ever seen! From the zany writer who brought you "Grapes of Wrath" and "East of Eden," John Steinbeck spins a yarn that'll leave you in stitches, as two rough-and-tough loners try to make in sunny California. But, uh oh! Looks like they cannot help but get into trouble, those crazy guys! Can they make it big while moving some hearts? Will George make his dreams come true? Will Lenny finally get his rabbits? Find out that and more in Lewis Milestone's most hilarious tale yet "Of Mice and Men," coming to a theater near you. *
*Disclaimer: "Of Mice and Men" is not actually coming to any theater close to you, unless you developed a time machine and went back to 1939. In which case, why are you going back in time to see a movie when you can kill Hitler? Like, seriously? Time and space are bendable and mean nothing, and you go back to watch a Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney Jr. flick? Not stopping the assassination of Lincoln or go roam with dinosaurs? You literally have the power of "Back to the Future" and "Doctor Who" and this is what you choose to do? Not that we are judging you or anything, it's just that there are certain things one must do when discovering time travel. In fact, why are you keeping time travel to yourself? We think that's the worst thing you can do. Come on man, give us some of that! You're lucky we don't come after you and steal that "magic" time machine from you for not using it properly. **
**Disclaimer: On behalf of the staff, we would like to apologize for that outburst. We don't condone that kind of behavior here. We got a bit anxious at the excitement of your time machine and only wished to see the creation of the firework. I mean, who doesn't love fireworks? It's like watching God cry explosions of fire and awesomeness. Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, "Of Mice and Men." You should go check it out if you like classic American tales about hard work and overcoming your personal flaws, with good performances from Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney Jr. Boy, this promo got weird, didn't it? Time machines and fireworks will do that to us. So, where you going with your time machine? Can we come? We promise not to bug you about going to see "Of Mice and Men" even though you should. ***
***Disclaimer: Give us your time machine!
Final Grade: B-
