RGECA 2010: RIDING ON THE BUS WITH MY SISTER (2005)

Watched: 2/26/2011

The Reel Grit Endurance Challenge started in LA and we Austin folks finally got permission to hold our own. The basic premise is a film marathon where all the movies are generally considered awful, participants may not talk through the films, if one must use the restroom one must do so in less than a minute or be forced to stand for the remainder of the film, etc. It is exactly what its name implies. The problem is, it seems we Austinites have more tolerance for crap…

Tweet review:

::RIDING ON THE BUS WITH MY SISTER was tender, touching and hilarious. Exquisite direction by Huston. O’Donnell shines. #RGECA #fb::

Okay, so that’s a lie. This was an epic misfire by everyone involved. MacDowell’s character is a complete bitch and has a character change out of left field, O’Donnell overplays the mentally challenged thing and the whole production is completely flat. And balls out hilarious. I’ll let a video speak for this movie:
