After Gary announced changes had been made so that Benjy will, in fact, be allowed to speak during tomorrow's festivities, Howard played Richard Roeper's review of "Supertwink: The Movie."
In his critique, Richard pointed out that High Pitch Eric gave the worst performance in movie history and that he thought the film was made merely as an excuse for Sal and Richard Christy to finally admit to their homosexuality.
In fact, the only kind thing he had to say about the movie was that Artie's portrayal of a disgruntled plumber was a scene-stealer.
Richard's remarks reminded Artie of a review he read about his acting abilities in "Dirty Work."
Artie recalled that he wasn't only referred to as "beefy and funny" in the write up, but that the reviewer also wrote he had "all the charm of a date rapist." Artie went on to say that his mom was upset by the date rapist line, but that his costar Norm MacDonald helped calm her down.
Artie reported that Norm explained to his mother that being referred to as a date rapist was actually a compliment, because, according to his logic, a date rapist is more charming than a regular rapist since he was able to get a date.
Doug Goodstein from iNDEMAND came into the studio and told Howard he didn't think Richard was hard enough in his review of "Supertwink," but added that fans will love the movie. Doug also mentioned that the owners of a 100-seat theatre have offered to premiere the film, so, if he wanted, Howard could host his viewing party there instead of at his apartment.
