Courts have ruled that third-party companies cannot edit movies for content, as such editing violates the copyright on the films. In an interview with Salt Lake City's Desert Morning News, Daniel Thompson, owner of four Cleanflix outlets, said, "I think it's ridiculous that you can't watch a movie without seeing sex, nudity or extreme violence. I don't understand why they're trying to keep that in there." Or, in an edited version of that statement: "I think it's ridiculous that you can watch a movie without seeing sex, nudity or extreme violence. I understand why they're trying to keep that in there." Or in a reworked version of that statement: "Fuckity fuckity fuck fuck fuck, kill babies, fuckity fuck fuck."
Opening this week is new film by oh dear god no not the Wayans brothers. Also opening is Owen Wilson's latest attempt to pay off whoever it is blackmailing him with photos of him and a goat doing the barnyard boogie. In the new inevitable hit comedy "You, Me and Dupree," Wilson plays a somewhat overbearing wise-ass who could probably be doing better things with his life.
At the Box Office
In the box office this week, a movie about goofy pirates beat out a movie about a flying man in a skintight uniform, which was followed by a film about an overbearing boss, an film in which Adam Sandler can control reality, a film about talking cars, a comedy about Mexican wrestling and a romantic drama in which Sandra Bullock travels through time.
