“Ted Kennedy. Good senator, but a bad date. You know what I’m saying, folks? One of those guys who gets home at four o’clock in the morning and goes, “What did I forget? Oh! The f***ing girl! What’s the matter with me? Jesus, where are my pants!?” – Denis Leary
A Hollywood movie about Ted Kennedy that makes him look like a douche? At best?
I can’t be the only one who heard Hollywood was making a Chappaquiddick movie. And who thought they were going to treat the truth like JFK and RFK treated Marilyn Monroe. You youngbloods may need to Google that reference, but it’s solid.
Leftists have spent decades lionizing Ted Kennedy. By the time this movie was over, Mary Jo Kopechne would have asked Kennedy to drown her at the bottom of a river. And thanked him for doing so. Because Ted Kennedy had all the right political opinions.
Instead, take a look at this:
“Moses had a temper. Peter betrayed Jesus. I have Chappaquidick.”
“Moses had a temper but he never left a girl at the bottom of the Red Sea.”
I don’t know, the movie shows promise? Maybe they just cut together the two minutes of negative stuff to trick us. But for two and a half minutes, I was at least surprised. Maybe Camelot is over.
Side note. If you’re looking for a good movie trailer…
