TCP: It Was a Disappointment

Hello Couchers! Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes. If you want to join us, please click the badge above.

When the DVD of The Happening was out, I was so eager to get ahold of a copy of it because it was a Shymalan's film (the director of Signs) and one of my favorite actors Mark Wahlberg was the lead character.

For the first few minutes of the movie, I was already disappointed but we gave it a chance since as I said I love the director and the main actor... but to my dismay it was the worst movie I have ever seen. It was a waste of two hours of my time!

Here's a summary of the movie from
Elliot Moore is a high school science teacher who quizzes his class one day about an article in the New York Times. It's about the sudden, mysterious disappearance of bees. Yet again Nature is doing something inexplicable, and whatever science has to say about it will be, in the end, only a theory. Scientists will bring out more theories, but no explanations, when a more urgent dilemma hits the planet. It begins in Central Park. Suddenly and inexplicably, the behavior of everyone in the park changes in a most bizarre and horrible way. Soon, the strange behavior spreads throughout the city and beyond. Elliot, his wife, Alma, and Jess, the young daughter of a friend, will only have theories to guide them where to run and where to hide. But theories may not be enough.
