Hot Tub Time Machine

Not Kevin Smith bad, but pretty bad anyway. So bad that during the movie I actually thought, "This is topic for Mike and his ilk."

You know, I like good things, too.

But speaking of bad, has anyone seen the documentary, Boy Interrupted, on HBO? It's about a 15-year-old boy who committed suicide. It was made by his filmmaking parents. While watching it, I kept getting the creeping feeling that as bad as it was for the parents to have lost their son, at least they got a movie out of it.
See God, Kai

I didn't see this doc, but I love that Mike has already steered a Hot Tub Time Machine thread in this direction.  

I have to say the title alone, "Boy Interrupted," rubs me the wrong way.

I DID see that one evening while staying at a hotel (I don't have HBO at home). It was riveting and insanely depressing at the same time. The parents are filmmakers anyway, so I guess it was natural for them to put together this documentary about their son, but as a parent there is no way that I could have done it.

I saw Boy Interrupted.  Among the various feelings it evoked was sadness that the parents/filmmakers chose to play off the title Girl Interrupted (a movie I confess I watched with some fascination because it is based on a book by someone I used to know quite well.  [Here's an insider's note for you:  the heroine's signature in the movie is the actual signature of the author, one I recognized instantly because I saw it affixed to many a freelancer's contract back in my olden days.])
