The New York Times Reviews 'Next' - Unkindly
Today's New York Times has a review of 'Next.' They don't make it sound great, but the word is we're not to worry:
"Mr. Dick’s story and “Next” have so little to do with each other that the writer’s die-hard fans can relax: the great man’s reputation has not been tainted by yet another knuckleheaded adaptation. Mr. Cage and Ms. Moore have it worse, since the spectacle of these two grimacing through so much risible dialogue and noisy action seems as wearing to them as to us."
I'm not exactly sure how we have been spared another "knuckleheaded adaptation" as a result of this knuckleheaded adaptation. Perhaps pre-cogs on this time track will recognize how bad 'Next' is and will go back in time to make sure the movie is never made. God, then I'll have to grade all those papers again!
