Lee Daniels' overheated The Paperboy, starring Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron, for MSN Movies. The picture is also a feature at this year's New York Film Festival, how snooty.

In the final analysis this is a movie about Lee Daniels wanting to film Zac Ephron in his underpants.
Had he honestly set out to make a softcore gay porn movie I could have some degree of respect for him (at an Andy Milligan level). But what we have here is pure sensationalism of the sort that makes "Cannibal Holocaust" look like a work of moral integrity.
Why does Zac Ephron suddenly rush into the ocean?
So he can get stung by jellyfish.
And what are those jellyfish doing there all of a sudden?
Stinging him so Nicole Kidman can pee on him.
This film has nothing seriously to do with racism or anything else.
A close friend of mine is quasi-friend of Lee Daniels. His reaction to the film? "Well it's just Lee being Lee."
