So Random: Katherine Heigl's Romantic Comedies of Doom

Even as a fan of Katherine Heigl, I have to admit that she's grown incredibly tiresome. I miss the days when she was that spunky, but gorgeous, actress in shows like Roswell and Grey's Anatomy (before it went to shit). While I enjoy 27 Dresses, the standard of her mismatched-pair-that-are-obviously-made-for-each-other rom-coms in which she is increasingly shrill and he (generic "he") is a bit of a douche have become dire.

While it may be sad to have to witness this worsening crisis, at least somebody out there is using it to their advantage. Enter The Onion with this hilarious news video entitled "In Freak Accident, 34 Katherine Heigl Films Released At Once". The hilarity, however, is tinged with sadness at the fact that all the films they invent - not 34, but a fair chunk - look like legitimate Heigl romantic comedies. Especially "Peeping Polly" and "Venus & Mars". The poster for the latter is not only a stinging jab to Heigl (and Bradley Cooper), but to key art designers around the world. Yikes.

Watch and laugh, folks. Watch and laugh.
