Movie theater gives refund for Sarah Palin movie, The Undefeated

Undefeated-thumb-180x230.jpg
It was after sitting through about 90 percent of the movie that I decided Sarah Palin's The Undefeated was 49 percent PBS-style documentary on how great Alaska is, 50 percent "Palin pal posse" circle jerk, and 1 percent Ronald Reagan references. Or perhaps a more accurate summation of this one-hour, 53-minute combo plate: an Alaskan-porno-Palin-sainthood-veneration sandwich with a bit of Ronald Reagan on the side, something like a wrinkly pickle. Shortly after the opening credits rolled, I wanted my money back.*

I am loathe to call this a movie, although it can be argued that it was quite theatrical. I trekked to the AMC Highlands Ranch 24, smuggled snacks in my bag and settled in. The opening montage of celebrities like Bill Maher, Louis C.K., Madonna and Matt Damon shoveling verbal manure on her was entertaining, but this was a few minutes followed immediately by a creepy, dark snow scene and a creepy, dark Bible quote from Matthew 7: 17-20 -- something about diseased trees, good fruit, bad fruit and a fire. I wanted my money back.

Next up was home videos of Palin and the fam, with children singing a hymn about swords in the background. Palin's audio-diary dialogue accompanied the scenes for the rest of the movie, interspersed with her pal posse's personal editorials about her awesome awesomeness, and her lead-off issue was how the Exxon Valdez incident made her want to get into politics. I wanted my money back.

The "God-Bless-Alaska" infomercial scenes took up a goodly portion of the flick, leading up to Palin's stint as mayor of Wasilla and her divine achievements with infrastructure and fiscal responsibility, and this is about the time where the thin veil gets torn asunder and the movie stops appearing to be a movie and transforms into a well-funded and disturbingly lengthy campaign advertisement. Don't misunderstand; it was always this, but it began to reek of naked, sweaty political opportunism at this point. I wanted my money back.

The Palin pal posse referred to her run-ins with criticism as a "spiritual battle," compared her to David against the Goliath of the oil companies and touted her resignation from the oil and gas commission after her whistle-blower routine as her way of "maintaining her ethics," and then cut to her inaugural swearing-in as governor amid blatant references and imagery comparing her to James Stewart's character in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. At this point I was so audibly banging my forehead against the back of the chair in front of me that several other moviegoers requested that I cease. I wanted my money back.

There was some more Alaska-suckling, blah blah, mumby-blah, the creepy snow scene reappeared a few more times and Palin blamed all of Alaska's problems on the last governor, did her turn on the government-cleanup catwalk, used the next few minutes to outline her qualifications to get the G.O.P. presidential nomination, she vetoed, she privatized a dairy, more about her triumphant battle against big oil and references to her being the solution to the "cigar-smoking good old boys" network. At this point I noticed that she had a nice rack and she wears an exorbitant amount of eyeliner, but I still wanted my money back.

I went to see Transformers 3 to write about it knowing it would be what it was - terrible

I regret not asking for my money back as well.

I saw this film and one of her lap dag cronies said she was like a Marine.As far as I'm concerned this is a slap in the face to all Marines past, present and future.Marines have a lot more integrity and honor than this nitwit ever will.She should apologize for insulting a group of Real Americans.

I think you are a sarcastic genius! Some of us, usually Liberals, have a sense of humor. Sorry if you don't like what she wrote. At least she didn't make up words. *Cough. Cough* "Refudiate."

No, libs in all 57 states are pretty much raving, humorless, psychopaths.

Palin: Media Lies About Her, Liberals Hate Her, RINO's Fear Her...  My kind of candidate!

There isn't much REAL hate for Sarah... most people are simply bored and irritated with her as they'd be with an irrelevant gnat buzzing around their head.  No one fears her - Rove's not even worried about her splitting off nomination votes if she runs - which she won't (and if she doesn't run, her pigeons will sit at home on election day .... banging their high chairs and throwing cookies at the TV).

obviously you are a Sarah hater and obviously you are just one of a million ignorant Obama puke liberals.  You are ignorant.  You are just scared of her.

 You choose to be ignorant (since you can type, I assume you can read)...  I said I don't "hate" Sarah - she bores me.  Read something that has to do with FIXING a major issue and get back to me.  As I've said, she bores me because she criticizes but never offers plans for solutions - she should be tweeting about the following.http://www.politico.com/news/s...

I'm far from a liberal - I'm a solid right-center fiscal conservative who could care less about social issues because they don't cause people to lose jobs and homes.

Is liberal puke different than conservative puke? Color, consistency, amount?

I hope Palin gets the nom and runs against President Obama. Then, on election night, I can eat some caramel corn, brush my teeth, go to bed and sleep like a drunken infant that night, knowing I have nothing to worry about.

Just another hater.  I bet you are a wonderful person to be around.  Are you admired by your colleagues, endeared by your family, or considered poisonous by anyone that knows of you.

Libs were so ecstatic about B.O. being the first "black" President. Surely they'll also be ecstatic with Palin overcoming immense bigotry and sexism (from progressives) and becoming the first woman President.

Wow... can you spell c-h-e-a-p?  Part of that ticket helps pay for those high school students working at the theater - etc...  Typical liberal - you can dish it out but you can't take it...

The only other movie I have ever asked for my money back for was "The Passion of the Christ" back in 2004, and I explained to the theater manager that it was unrealistic snuff film, and I got a refund. I've sat through Ben Stiller movies before, so I think my rep as a game day player is still pretty solid.

You should've asked for your money back from all the Mikey Moore movies, since he loathes capitalism.

How can you not like Mike? He ran a ficus plant for a congressional seat and got Alan Keyes to jump into a mosh pit. He's got street cred.

"Typical liberal" - LOL.... a lot more people than just liberals think Sarah Palin is 10 lbs of BS in a 5 lb bagger.

Before and after all her chanting to "shrink federal spending", Ted Stevens' death did more to reduce fed handouts to Alaska than anything Sarah ever did.

must be a long time since you have been to a theatre. the price of a ticket pays for the rental fee for the movie you are seeing; the outrageous prices at the concessions is the money that pays for the costs of running the theatre.

She has had her 15 min of fame, time for her to head back to Alaska and do some fishing and stay out of politics. I never understood what those that liked her saw in her.

Sarah willnever sell herself short. This film is simply another publicity stunt to makePalin what she really wants…. not the presidency, but cold hard CASH. Palin isfor $ale and is making it rich on your dime with every book, speakingengagement, and movie ticket that markets her image and sells her looks (it’scertainly not her choice of words which got her this far.) Check out this veryscandalous portrait of her erotically rolling in the dough on my artist’s blogat http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-o​f-s...
