Shout Out: Eric Grandy of The Stranger

“Goddamn, it’s hard to watch Paul Rudd pay the bills.”

That’s the opening sentence to Eric Grandy’s review of the Eva Longoria-Parker/Paul Rudd film Over Her Dead Body.

If you write movie reviews for a living, occasionally you’ll have to review films you know are going to be nothing more than trite Hollywood “product.” And if you write movie reviews for a publication like the Stranger, it’s likely that your audience has little to no interest in such cinema. Many of us, given a shitty assignment like Over Her Dead Body would phone it in and move on to something more worth our effort. Not Mr. Grandy, apparently.

Kudos, Eric, for rewarding your readers.

Full review here.
