And there is no pleasure in saying this. Because he’s supposed to be a sweet kid…when he’s not flailing his ego about and pissing on the movie version of the tv show that made him.

But it’s true. Michael Cera’s Paper Heart ate it at Sundance. Touted as one of the most highly anticipated films at the film festival, Paper Heart ended up falling flat. As in critics leaving the theatre laughing at its expense. Twee is the word. Twee is not what Michael Cera had in mind.

How ironic too. Because he exited Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s screening similarly dismissively last week. Karmic boomerang, bitch.

But in the end it bodes well for us. Kid, just make the Arrested Development movie. Like what else do you have going for you? Gilligan?
