I had to pass this one along because it made me laugh. You've heard that you can't please everyone. Well someone demonstrates this by rounding up the 1-star reviews on Amazon for classic movies and books. (Actually, they are not all classics.)
Samples of ACTUAL reviews:
This is the worst book I have ever read!!! I started it with an interest toward the Holocaust. Anne Frank never talked about anything even relating to this major historical event in her short life.
Re: The Odyssey
This book sucks. I dont care if Homer was blind or not this book is like 900 pages too long. I could tell this story in about 10 pages. Homer taking all long to say stupid stuff. Teens if you are reading this all I have to say is CLIFF NOTES CLIFF NOTES you will pass the test, unless you are in AP classes. The teachers expect kids to read cliff notes trust me my moms a teacher. P.S this book SUCKS.
Re: The Sound of Music
This movie should be called the Sound of Mucus. The only redeeming quality is that the family has to run from nazis.
This movie was made in the sixties, we live in the 21st century, GET OVER IT!
Warning: I would like for this site to do only that - keep it focused. However,
it seems they have to use it to push political stuff as well. Too bad.
