Teen watches 30% of ‘Yes Man’ between text messages

‘2bh idgi’ he texts buddies

Niles North High School senior Ted Landmeyer watched nearly a third of the Jim Carrey pic ‘Yes Man’ last night, between text messages, naps and talking with friends on his cell.

“It was kinda hard to follow,” said Landmeyer. “I mean, why is he all of the sudden saying yes to everything? Whatever, did you hear Scott Pender totally banged Lisa Steltz under the bleachers? She’s such a slut.”

According to various text messages sent by Landmeyer during the film, ‘Yes Man’ was “nf at all” and “not kewl.” Adults who went to the same viewing as Landmeyer had a different take on the experience.

“Why do these kids even bother going to movies if all they want to do is text their friends?” asked 45-year-old Ron Ellard. “It’s a complete waste of money, and it ruins the viewing experience for everyone around them.”

When asked what he thought of the movie, Ellard agreed with the teen’s general assessment.

“Not funny,” he said. “I’ll probably blog about it later on Facebook.”
