Carnage is the story of two couples who decide to have a nice sit down after their kids are involved in a schoolyard brawl. Then, based on the trailer, they yell and swear at each other and their marriages implode.
So, overall it’s a good time for all!
I think the two couples are really different from one another, with one set being tough jerks (these being the parents of the bully), and the other parents being touchy-feely. All I know is that the trailer looks like the worst film I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen other John C. Reilly films.
Yeah. I said it. And that INCLUDES Step Brothers.
Surprisingly, there’s very little child rape in this.
I say ‘surprisingly’ because Roman Polanski directed the film. The film is based on a play by Yasmina Reza.

What’s Good About It?
Great cast, and it’s about people fighting.
What’s Bad About It?
It’s very obviously based on a play. Watch the trailer, it’s four people sitting in a room talking. Plus, it’s about parents being weinies. Yawn.
Wake me up when Roman Polanski pays for his crimes. Hell, even Canadians know he’s a dirtbag.
Yeah. I said something nice about Canadians. They can recognize the evil of raping a child.
Our Clever Prediction
I hope it bombs. I expect it will, but there is a chance that any of the main actors could get award love for the film, and Hollywood falls all over themselves to put Polanski on a pedestal. Even though he raped a little girl.
And don’t comment on that. I’m right.
