Boycott "Southland Tales": unfair to Janeane Garofalo!

I am hereby urging everyone to boycott the movie "Southland Tales", to be released in November. Since I've been boycotting movies since I saw "A Stranger Among Us" around 1992 or so, this will be easy for me. However, if you're one of those people who inexplicably watches movies, I urge you not to attend.

The film is from writer-director Richard Kelly, and it's the sequel to something called "Donnie Darko", which appeared in 2001. It features a cast of D- and E-movie actors like "The Rock", Justin Timberlake and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The reason for my boycott is that one E-movie actress it won't feature is this one:

The major casualty [of a re-editing to make it less worse], lopped off at the studio's urging, was a subplot with Janeane Garofalo as a general.

Anyone who'd cast JFo as a general (except perhaps in the Iraqi Army) belongs in a mental institution.
