The Happening: You Almost Can’t Believe It Happened

We’re reviewing The Happening for this episode. You know The Happening gets a bad rap? It’s got a cool premise, it’s got comedy. You like The Happening, right? By the way, I think I know what’s going on, and I want to let you know before it’s too late. I was at the thrift store a while ago. There was a really good-looking DVD on the shelf. Really good-looking. I went up to it and grabbed it from the shelf. I didn’t even have cash, and I almost bought it. I’m talking a completely superfluous DVD on the shelf. Cost like six bucks.

The Happening is Rated R for violent and disturbing images. It features Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel, John Leguizamo, and Betty Buckley. Directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
