About About Schmidt

It actually offends me when people laugh at things that aren't funny. Especially when they're laughing like they're watching a freakin' Chris Farley movie when I am finding the whole thing deeply depressing. A comparison to Welcome to the Dollhouse is not invalid, except I think that is a much better film. Still, I don't want people to laugh at Wiener Dog. The stuff where she gets picked on -- that's not funny. And it's ultimately an upbeat movie, I think. She's gonna be okay. Not so with Schmidt. I mean, I did like the last scene, but it doesn't make me feel good about life or anything. Much more depressing than The Hours.

And Nicholson is overrated. There. I said it.
