In most movies about dumbasses, the dumbass has an epiphany that makes them stop being such a dumbass. Not in “The Wrestler” (2008), which is about a dumbass wrestler. It’s more like real life: dumbasses pretty much stay dumbasses forever, doing the same dumbass stuff over and over, with occasional forays into virgin dumbass territory. I liked it. Speaking of virgins, Marisa Tomei is very naked in this movie, belatedly answering prayers of now-middle-aged men who wanted to see her naked when she was doing chick flicks like “Untamed Heart.” Not mentioning anyone in particular. He’s probably just a dumbass.

“Point Blank” (1998) is a terrible movie (shit… still have 93 words to go). Uh, well, OK, I planned to watch “Point Break,” a bad surfing/crime drama with Val Kilmer, but I mixed up the titles. Instead, I get Mickey Rourke, all roided and botoxed, and a prison break gone wrong. Mickey’s a second-rate Rambo trying to rescue his brother, one of the breakees (“Point Break” might have actually been a good title for this one, too.). Anyway, I got bored and started writing this review. I’ll let you know how it ends if I have any words left (oops).
