I guess it's his career going full circle: great movie about Indian culture and way of life to insultingly bad mocking of Indian culture and their way of life. He needs to stick to the former.

What happened to Ben Kingsley? It's like he'll star in anything these days. Maybe he is in trouble with a bookie and is now always in need of money and getting it as soon as possible.

The film itself was kind of a all over the place, but it was still entertaining. And all of the performances were good (With the exception of Ben Kingsley, who was too over-the-top). This was definitley Hilary Duff's breakout role, and I am pretty excited to see where her career goes from here.

 

P.S. I always believed that she didn't deserve her first two Razzie nominations, and I thought you guys kind of were picking on her (just my opinion of course).

He didn't say she was a problem at all. He said that she was good in the movie, which she really was.

Yeah well I didn't really mean to delete it. I just meant it shouldn't have started. That's all.

I just saw this now and I have to disagree. This movie was actually very good and very funny. I really think this should be taken off the forum because it isn't bad. And Hilary Duff is also very good. It was a little awkward to watch the things they had her doing because of who she is and what her reputation is but this is her best performance to date and neither she, nor this movie, deserve consideration for a Razzie this year.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: It is our policy on The Official RAZZIE® Forum to never "remove" any discussion or thread. Individual postings (like the jerk who keeps trying to use our Forum as free advertising to sell sports shoes) we reserve the right to delete -- But complete discussion threads, no.

Your disagreement with this particular film's inclusion has been duly noted, and it does not look likely to get much consideration come year-end...

War Inc. has raised its tomatometer, while "Postal" has shrined.

War Inc. = 31% fresh
Postal = 9% fresh

I actually saw this today and found it was really funny. Hilary Duff played again type, and actually delivered a great performance. Everybody else did a great job. *** 1/2 stars for this movie!

BTW, the movie's a satire of the Middle East, so a little over-the-top casting is,, I feel, necessary for this kind of genre.

Nice bellybutton on Miss Duff. Wait a second, if she's an Arab pop singer, shouldn't she be covered from head to toe?

I'm dumbstruck about this movie.  I agree with HeadRAZZBerry--even when John Cusack is in what (for him) would be a lousy movie, it's at least been an interesting lousy movie.  It's incredible to me that the Razzies are even talking about him...but here he is!

I still haven't seen the movie but (even thought he gave it a bad review) at least Richard Roeper said Hilary Duff is actually good in this!
