A Trailer to A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

August 31, 2006


Even Stevens and Robert Downey Jr. in the same movie? I must be in God's mouth! Gosh, no, I just watched the trailer for A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, which also stars Rosario Dawson. It looks like a pretty standard story. After watching the trailer, we can all see where this one's going: man flees from home and family as child, man's father is dying, man returns home for father, man reconnects with childhood girl who's now "all grown up" (i.e. fully developed breasts, reproductive system), girl accuses man of giving her syphilis, man denies knowledge of syphilis, dying father admits to giving both syphilis, all die of syphilis. Maybe I made some assumptions in the end there, but really, we've all seen this movie before--why such an ostentacious title? It's like calling a Steven Seagal movie anything over three words.*

*Preferably, Seagal movie title will vaguely describe his character and/or situation in these two to three words. For example, Above the Law, Hard to Kill, Marked for Death, Under Siege, On Deadly Ground, Out for Justice, Out for a Kill**, Out of Reach, or Prince of Pistols.

**"a" doesn't count as a word, all right, nitpicker?
