When we last checked in with America’s acting moral compass George Clooney, he was telling the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (he must be in the Sciences division) that Hollywood is best when it makes socially responsible movies, defined on his terms.
Clearly it’s time for a Clooney update. As luck would have it, we saw mentioned in this article that Mr. Message Film has just signed on to tackle more morally and ethically provocative material in a movie called, um, er, well, it’s called “Ocean’s 13.”
Ah yes, Hollywood leads the country by example when it milks a concept a third time. Like “Policy Academy 3,” “Escape from the Planet of the Apes,” and “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.” In this case, it’s more like “George Clooney Beyond Plunderdome.”
Godspeed Mr. Clooney. Teach the children well.
