No, I am not talking about Kerry Wood, or Woody from Toy Story. I am referring to Woody Harrelson. The other day I recorded the movie Kingpin. I have to say it was one of the dumbest movies I had seen in a long time. For those of you who have not seen it, the basic plot goes something like this. Woody Harrelson plays an all-state bowling champion who wants to go pro. He meets Billy Murray and they try to hustle so people. The people get pissed and put Harrelson in the ball return, which cuts off his hand. Needless to say, 17 years down the road he has turned into a lowly drunk with one hand who can no longer bowl but is still obsessed with it. He comes across an Amish prospect who he then wants to ride to fame in a Million dollar tournament. Really, the only bright spot to this movie was seeing Vanessa Angel in it. She’s a hottie. For those who don’t know who she is, feast your eyes on her.

After I watched this movie I started to think about other movies that I had seen with Wood Harrelson in them. Here is the list: Doc Hollywood, White Men Can’t Jump, Natural Born Killers, The People Vs. Larry Flint, The Thin Red Line.

Doc Hollywood: Sucked

White Men Can’t Jump: Sucked

Natural Born Killers: Way too messed up psychologically

The People vs. Larry Flint: Interesting just because of the information. If the story was made up, it would have sucked.

The Thin Red Line: Boring and Long

So basically, any Woody Harrelson movie I have ever seen, which are the ones he is famous for sucked. Boy Woody, that’s a career to be proud of.
