    I advise reading it.

    LINK to PDF

    The problem with both movies is the same: FSF was making fun of the vapid, lavish lifestyle that the movie stars live everyday. They don't really get it.

    It depends; are you familiar with the story?

    If not, I would skip it. Have you seen "Pain and Gain"? Holy shit, that was really good; I can't believe that Michael Bay directed it.
