Ben Brantley craps on Rocky
Ben Brantley praises Appropriate

David Cote gives 4 of 5 stars to Rocky
David Cote gives 2 of 5 stars to Appropriate

I have no use for Brantley. Cote has the natural Wildhorn bias and most of his raves are for those sort of off the wall things. Sure he likes mainstream stuff but his raves tend to go not mainstream stuff.

Rocky was ripped by Ben and once party on this board called it a turd. How than can be? Cote raves about the same show? Either it blows or it doesn't

Appropriate is loved by Ben and yet Appropriate is the type of show Cote normally likes. One person on this board said it was not Broadway material. Again same show but diametrically opposed opinions.

Mull and discuss

In an hour or so off with the Mrs to a local Irish Gastropub for a night of good food and live music.

Anyone who refers to their wife as 'their Mrs' has some serious possessive 'master of the house' issues.

So, by your logic... when you go out tonight, and you order one dish and "the Mrs." orders another, and both insist it is the best thing ever, one of you has to be wrong?

Roxy you loved Rocky as evidenced by your 57 comments in the Rocky review thread. Brantley didn't like it. You think he's a really, really baaaaad man. We freakin' get it. Give it a freakin' rest already.

He can't give it a rest, Bob. I don't think he's physically able.

And that's why we love him.

Brantley didn't actually say not to attend Rocky, he just said to show up two hours and 10 minutes late...

But you're missing the finer points FishermanBob. What seems to be troubling Roxy is that two different people have two different opinions. He seems to be disturbed because using his logic one of them has to be right and one of them has to be wrong.
Can anyone tell me how the line has been?

Good point Namo. I think the key for Roxy will be getting his own opinion to the critics earlier to ensure they have time to write their reviews expressing the same opinion and these situations aren't encountered in the future.

Rocky's average ticket price last week: $62.83.

To Sweet Lips

You are 100% wrong. I was not reading any psycho mumbo jumbo into "The Mrs". She is my wife and I love her. Next time and in the future going forward I will refer to her as "my wife and I or we"> This should clear up any misconceptions people may have.

I think "my wife and I or we" is even more confusing.

"Next time and in the future going forward"

Oh, Roxy, please don't used canned phrases like the dreaded "going forward."
