Becky and I went to see Running with Scissors at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO on opening night and what a huge mistake that was. The Fandango website at Running with Scissors describes the movie as follows:
“A man looks back on his unusual childhood, his mentally ill mother and her unorthodox therapist. Based on the book by Augusten Burroughs.”
Running with Scissors is officially the worst movie we have seen this year! It stars Annette Bening and she is completely whacked in this movie. She’s married to Alec Baldwin and decides that her life stinks and that she wants to be a poet, but it’s her husbands fault that she isn’t happy, so she starts seeing a shrink to solve her problems.
The next thing you know she’s giving her son up for adoption to her shrink, divorcing her husband, becoming a lesbian and falling out of relationship with her son. Eventually, she goes into the looney bin (which is where this film belongs), and her son becomes a homosexual who starts having sex with the shrink’s dysfunctional son.
This movie was so bad that people were walking out left and right and we should have joined them. We sure wanted to, but we decided to stay and see if it would end as bad as it started. It did! Running with Scissors was not even worth the film it was printed on and there wasn’t anything good about this movie.
There were a few laughs, but the joke was really on the audience since everyone should have been compensated for having to endure the agony of this movie. If you see Running with Scissors on the rental rack, run the other way or just leave it there.
