Before the Film Threat staff pigs out, we’d like to show our appreciation and give thanks to the following in Hollywood.
[ CHRIS COLUMBUS ] ^ We’re thankful that he wasn’t allowed to direct Spider-Man.
[ ANGELINA JOLIE ] ^ We’re thankful that she’s comfortable enough with her body to appear nude in nearly ever movie.
[ RENNY HARLIN & GEENA DAVIS ] ^ We’re thankful that they are no longer making action movies
[ NUDITY ] ^ We’re thankful for actresses who will do nudity even when it’s not essential to the plot.
[ MUSICALS ] ^ We’re thankful for Almost Famous and High Fidelity — perhaps the two best movies ever about what it means to be a music fan.
[ JONATHAN LIPNICKI ] ^ We’re thankful for every movie this year that didn’t have him flying around as an annoying grinning vampire.
[ BAD MOVIES ] ^ We’re thankful that the worst movies of the new millennium are already behind us.
[ JOHN TRAVOLTA ] ^ We’re thankful that the only person who still thinks there will be a “Battlefield: Earth II” is John Travolta.
[ NAKED RICH ] ^ We’re thankful that “Cast Away” doesn’t feature a fat, scheming naked guy.
[ BLAIR WITCH BURN OUT ] ^ We’re thankful that nobody involved in “Blair Witch 2” will ever work in Hollywood again.
[ BOXOFFICE RECOUNT ] ^ We’re thankful that, unlike election returns, box office figures are always reported fairly and accurately by the studios, with no bias towards their own product.
[ LOVELY ANGELS ] ^ We’re thankful to the wardrobe department of “Charlie’s Angels” for Drew Barrymore’s busty jumpsuit and Cameron Diaz’s little white undies.
[ MIKE MYERS ] ^ We’re thankful that Mike Myers came to his senses and spared us yet another padded and painfully unfunny SNL movie (“Dieter”).
[ STEVEN SODERBERGH ] ^ We’re thankful for two Steven Soderbergh movies in one year — and none by Oliver Stone.
[ HOWARD STERN ] ^ We’re thankful that he’s busy giving strippers breast exams, and not making “Private Parts 2”.
[ PAMELA ANDERSON LEE ] ^ We’re thankful that her show “V.I.P.” is a whomping success, so she doesn’t have time to star in any more cheesy action flicks.
[ CARMEN ELECTRA ] ^ We’re thankful that she got naked in “Playboy, and that when you look at the pictures you don’t have to hear her talk.
