Worked for me

The power of opportunistically clicking links: yesterday, I hit the link for the Daily Wire’s new comedy movie Lady Ballers and it inexplicably let me watch the whole movie without being a subscriber.

It was surprisingly good. It wasn’t one long cross-dressing joke, either; it had lots of side gags and easter eggs. I mean, sure, if you catch most of the references, we probably follow the same people on Xwitter, but it didn’t feel like pandering or forced messaging. It felt like they genuinely set out to make a funny film.

Nearly the whole cast is amateurs – in fact, many of them are pundits with the Daily Wire – and I’m afraid it felt like it in places. I hate being forced to admit that professional actors have an actual skill. But it wasn’t enough to ruin it. I’d watch it again.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like I can do it for free for a while. If you hit the link above, it’ll ask you to sign in to your account. For the next twelve hours, they’re going half price on an annual membership – $6.50 a month – but I don’t want to see it seventy eight bucks worth. Come to think of it, they might not even let me sign up from outside the US.

Worth considering if you had kids, though. I understand their children’s programming is genuinely good. And not just Disney+ for MAGA, but genuinely thoughtful.

“let me watch the whole movie without being a subscriber.”

That was caused by a translation error.

Thanks, Stoaty! I was aware of this movie but I generally don’t watch many movies. You’ve made it sound more than interesting and entertaining enough to give it a try.

…but I’ll try to see it on the cheap!

I can’t access Daily Wire. For some reason, my internet address is blocked. Not anything I did – probably because “Philippines”.

I did see “Lady Ballers” anyway – I sailed the high seas with Jack Sparrow – and it was . . . okay. They need to polish up their act a bit, and it could use a trim of about 30 minutes. Two hours is waaaay too long.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
