Movie Not Nearly As Awful As Hoped

LOS ANGELES—Saying it was a waste of $11, Los Angeles resident Dan Bevver expressed disappointment Sunday that The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3 was not nearly as bad as he had been anticipating. After going in with expectations of hammy acting and clichéd dialogue, Bevver was irritated to find an adequate retelling of the 1974 film, with performances that ranged from acceptable to decent. "I really thought this was going to be Battlefield Earth bad," Bevver said. "It had all the makings of a total shit-show: an unnecessarily reworked script, lots of explosions, Travolta with a mustache. But it was kind of watchable. What a shame." In order to salvage his night, Bevver went home and fell asleep midway through Leonard Part 6.
