The previews for The Judge are so schmaltzy and all-over-the-place. It reminds me of The Butler — sorry, Lee Daniels’ The Butler — when every single ad had Oprah purring the words “that butler,” because there is WAY TOO MUCH of Robert Downey Jr. calling Robert Duvall “Judge.” That sentence is extremely inelegant, also, but it had to be done. For on this, the premiere day of Bad Judge, I couldn’t bear the burden of my judgment of The Judge any longer. If only Judge Reinhold were around.
Ahhh. Much better.
