We tried to watch Ponette this evening, but, finally, about 45 minutes in, we turned it off. We simply couldn’t do it. It was just dreadful. It had nothing to recommend it – not plot, or action, or characters. The plot moves like a volkswagen bug in 18 inches of mud. And that’s being generous.

I mention all of this so that, if you’re the person that recommended it to me, you can pretend it was someone else. ‘Cause otherwise, I’m never taking your movie advice again. Ever. Mmkay?
