    Angry And you thought Hollywood couldn't sink any lower?

    Think again...they have. Will Farrell is going to star in a "spoof" about Ronald Reagan having Alzheimer's.
    Yes, making fun of people who have lived through the horror of Alzheimer's disease, or died from it, is now hilarious.

    Uproar over report that Will Ferrell will play Reagan - CNN.com

    I hope NO ONE goes to this despicable "movie" and shame, shame, shame on Will Farrell for agreeing to it.

    I saw this on news this afternoon. It's garbage as far as I can tell. You're right about a new low, Jeanlouise!

    Greg Gutfeld made the point this evening that Hollywood would never make a comedy spoofing Ted Kennedy and Mary Jo Kopechne.

    Wouldn't that be a knee slapper? They are missing some great comedy material by not doing that one. /sarcasm

    JL, what might make you think we wouldn't think Hollywood couldn't sink any lower? I have an infinite capacity for believing Hollyweird can continue to find revolting and disturbing garbage to try to sell to world movie audiences. This is just one more example of their depravity and hypocrisy.

    At least Nancy isn't around to suffer these fools.

    Having friends who have lost parents to Alzheimer's I hope it is a bigger flop than the politically stupid (correct) remake of the “Lone Ranger” but it is something like one would expect of will farrell.

    Alzheimer's is not funny; and neither is Will Farrell, so...
    I know little on the subject so I'll speak at length.

    If you have an excuse for failure, you will.

    I actually like some of Will Ferrel's work, but this is sad indeed.
