Who's Da Fool?

I may well get drummed out of the Curmudgeon Club, or indeed hauled up before the Inquisition for heresy, but I've got to confess that this looks like it might be kinda fun after all:

It seems to me from the trailer that the movie doesn't take itself too seriously, which is key. On the other hand, I'm a bit troubled by some of the whiz-bang gadgets. Where's the duct-tape? Where's the aluminum tubing? Where's the converted lawn-mower engine? That's teh stuff of A-Team ingenuity.

Also, it must be said again that Liam Neeson is no George Peppard. Peppard could make Neeson cry like a schoolgirl. Peppard could give Neeson an atomic wedgie and then make Neeson beg for another one. Peppard could....well, you get the idea.

I just hope somebody actually dies in the movie.

What? And break with perhaps the finest tradition of the entire franchise? What a Jacobin idea!

I won't go and see it. They would not give Mr. T. a cameo.

I pity the fool!

As I understand the press reports, they actually wanted him to cameo but he refused.

Shallow plot line, dumb humor, mediocre acting, good special effects, violence...Sounds like my kind of movie....
