WHO WATCHES THE WATCHIES?

The Watchmen is the longest episode of Scooby Doo I have ever seen--so much bad guys explaining their motives. The best part was when Dr. Manhattan appeared full frontal for the first time and the lady behind us goes "his penis is blue!" I also laughed hardest when the mom yells "I should of had an abortion!" in slow-mo. The puns and jokes about The Comedian having the last laugh/"jokes over" got repeated so many times, as Matt said, it was like The Aristrocrats, but except in The Aristocrats there is no soft porn scene in a spaceship with unceasing minutes of visual metaphors. The hackneyed and convoluted meta-text about the world united patriotically (but stupidly) around a fake terrorist evil was a little too 9/11 was an inside job for me and an insultingly slow ball to pitch. I would not watch that movie again for less than $85 dollars.
