Is it just me or am I the only one who thinks Brokeback Mountain is a cliche'? Besides what's two hunky cowboys doing each other for when they have all those nice warm sheep they're supposed to be a-herding and tending?

I think the "Sheep" film is next, a serious claymation offering from Aardman... It's going to be called "Wooly Trousers" or something.

I guess you can't call it a cliche if Larry McMurtry wrote it... it's gotta be a "classic"...

My friend in england a huge aardman fan really, really liked Hamano's comment which is, english or not, quite funny.

I'd rather see Brokeback Rabbit.

1) Any reason for not seeing a film is valid. However, having not seen the film, the reason itself should not be confused with valid criticism.

2) Can't most movies be reduced to a cliche?
An unscrupulous writer will do anything to get the story--Capote.
A private detective discovers more than what he's bargained for--Chinatown.
A young woman sacrifices all to save her home--Gone with the Wind.

3) Wouldn't making it with sheep be even more of a cliche?

resist.... resist... resist...

Depends on how willing you and the sheep are to keep your relationship fresh, I suppose...

*damn* I didn't resist...

I enjoyed The Boondocks new slang usage for "Brokeback" in yesterday's comics.

I'm not sure, but there should probably be an adult film titled "Bareback Mountain".
