Yeah well you're right to wince, Paul Rudd! Don't know if you guys have been paying attention but Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters: Afterlife is out this weekend -- it purports to be a follow-up to the first two movies (forget them Lady Ghostbusters, eww girls) and drags a bunch of the original stars back (no doubt upon stacks and stacks of delicious cash). Anyway lo behold my thoughts on all of that have just gone up over at Pajiba today. These thoughts... they are not good. Not good at all. Indeed I felt as if I needed to take a Silkwood shower after writing them down, so vehement was my vitriol. Thankfully for Paul he's not to blame -- he does what he can with the garbage material. This one's totally on the script. Anyway even if the Sexiest Man Alive 2021 Edition isn't to blame I still needed to perk myself up Rudd-wise, and tweeting this earlier helped me, as I'm sure it will you:
Today's random sadness is that I didn't get to see Paul Rudd do Twelfth Night at Lincoln Center in 1998 pic.twitter.com/SSQBwXzsDJ— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) November 17, 2021
Those undies look kind of full
The reviews are horrible for this movie but don’t expect it to be dragged like that all women version. What a surprise.
I remember watching this. PBS might have aired it, not sure. I thought Paul Rudd was great in it. I was pleasantly surprised by his facility with Shakespeare. I'd have to watch again, but I recall that Pauls performance seem to play up the Dukes possible sexual confusion at being attracted to what he thought was a young man. Though ostensively the Duke is in love with Olivia, there are moments when you think he might be more in love with Cesario/Viola.
I remember the production (there was a video of it available at the time). Followed a trend in theatre back then of getting actors wet on stage, really wet. In tubs, or pools of water, or rain showers from the flies above. Naturalism. The moments were memorable and provided an excuse to get their clothes off, before, during, or after, so good enough. Sold tickets.
Paul Rudd is probably the king of adorkables. I'd always thought he was cute and definite marriage material in a fantasy world. But that purple thong catapulted him instantly into my permanent top ten (or at least top 20--a lot of hot guys out there...Ewan, Timmy, Josh O). And finally the world, or at least People magazine, got the memo.
