Mel Gibson's next movie will be called The Beaver. It will be about a man who is depressed and as a means of attempting to lift his spirits, wears a beaver puppet on his hand. My first thought was, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Then I read that Steve Carrel and Jim Carrey had also reportedly been checking the script out and realized that's it only the stupidest thing I've heard of Mel Gibson doing. If anybody else was doing it, say someone who is actually cool, and it was handled correctly, say as a black comedy as opposed to a drama-dy, I would be all about it. Jodie Foster is directing so I'm sensing drama-dy. So for now I'm going to stick with my gut reaction, which is to say, stupid. Not to mention how many immature jokes about a dude with a beaver on his hand it will produce.
