Is No One Troubled…

By the fact that this new Wayans’ Bros. movie is basically a total rip-off of the old Bugs Bunny cartoon with Babyface Finster?

Update: A reader adds:

Jonah,

Yeah, I’m plenty irritated that the Wayans’ movie is a direct rip-off, right down to the scene where the baby Wayans is shaving with an electric razor while decked out in baby garb. The really depressing thing is that the cartoon was a few minutes long, whereas the movie will be the same theme stretched out to 90 minutes or so.

On the positive side, once Bugs realized the baby was in fact the notorious criminal Babyface Finster, he proceeded to beat holy hell out of him. So maybe we’ll see some of that. Not that I intend to see it.
