Sublimely dunderheaded

I love when the New York Times reviews really, really bad movies. The way they archly skewer the film is always entertaining. Today's victim is 10,000 B.C. I love this passage:

Yet even as the story begins, the old ways seem to be dying out, as the Yagahl, a tribe of snuffleupagus hunters who favor extensions in their hair and eschew contractions in their speech, prepare for their last hunt.

Snuffleupagus - awesome! It's like seeing a horrible movie with a really smart & funny friend, whispering comments to you under their breath. Sublime, indeed.

The snuffleupagus rampage towards the end was the best part; that's when I woke up. The shooting locations were good too: Namibia, South Africa and New Zealand.
