I See Dumb People

Janet Maslin reviews a new book by Michael Bamberger - he of infamous drop fame - in which he followed M. Night Shyamalan - he of crappy movie fame - during the making of "Lady in the Water". A hack following a hack for a few months should lead to a little humor, but apparently the UIC quotient is sky-high.

Still, while reading a story of noise and futility as told by an idiot might be good for a few laughs, I just can't imagine suffering through the descriptions of hubris and the tone unwarranted adulation. My only real interest in this is for the Paul Giamatti stories (though they'd probably be few), and hoping that idjit writer might ask him about his father. You know, 'cause he's a sportswriter.
