Better Living Through Bad Movies Presents: The Island (2005)

[NOTE: If you’re cast in a movie where you play a 4-year old clone who knows nothing and needs everything explained, then 85% of your performance is going to consist of this expression.]

"We should probably address the controversy up front. Some denounce this film as a shameless rip-off of  Parts: The Clonus Horror, an obscure 1979 horror movie which featured Peter Graves and the relief Darren from Bewitched, and starred that guy who played the Gene Shalit-looking fireman on Emergency! And sure, The Island does seem to recycle the premise and every major plot point of the earlier film, but that’s okay, because it’s a copy of a movie about cloning! Which is a brilliant metatextual critique of its own thematic gestalt! Or, you know, plagiarism. Whatever."
