Longtime friends of mine know the loathing I have for Kansas City’s own Shawn Edwards, a ‘film critic’ – and I use that term very loosely – for our local Fox television affiliate who is either a soulless corporate shill or holds the record for the world’s largest case of ADHD. He will give a good quote for anything – the latest Rob Schneider film, an Arby’s commercial, public access shows about psychic dogs – anything. People like him aid and abet the mindless crap that comes out of Hollywood, and there is a special cozy section of hell for quote whores like him.
But today we celebrate his career, as he’s finally made the coveted #1 spot on the 2007 edition of eFilmCritic’s list of Whores of the Year. Congratulations, Shawn, you deserved it.
