Micro-Review: In the Company of Men

I watched In the Company of Men last night, on Netflix's recommendation. Note to self: rearrange queue and stop watching films that Netflix suggests.

A team of writers, actors, directors, and publicists plan a cruel hoax in which they trick people into watching a weakly written and poorly acted film, thinking that there might be something worthwhile in it. At the end of 97 minutes they reveal that the film was a complete waste of time and totally pointless, leaving the audience to wish that they'd put season 2 of Veronica Mars at the top of their Netflix queues.
