The Next Ben-Hur? Or Maybe Citizen Kane?

Allow me to directly quote from the LA Times Blog:

"Variety is reporting that the Jonas Brothers -- Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas, and the "Bonus Jonas" Frankie, 8 -- will star in -– are you ready? "Walter the Farting Dog."

The family-friendly film is based on a best-selling children's book series of the same name. The main character, Walter, is a grossly fat dog with really, really bad gas.

The Jonas Brothers will play musicians who help their parents care for their aunt's dog just before she passes away.

"By the time they’ve driven the dog home, everybody’s head is out the window of the family station wagon but Frankie, and only because he has a serious sinus problem and doesn’t notice the stench coming from Walter," director Peter Farrelly (“There’s Something About Mary”) told Variety.

Filming starts next spring.

Actually, it could be pretty funny. And pretty successful. Lord knows there are a lot of 6-year-olds, 16-year-olds, even 46-year-olds who just love canine flatulence humor. A comedy for all ages!

Let's just hope it's not released in smell-o-vision."

I beg to differ. There's no way this movie can be in any way amusing, unless of course the Jonas Brothers die in the end from inhalation poisoning. I'd pay to see that.
