The Lyrics

Gerry is a 2002 film wildly regarded as one of the most boring things ever to bore boringly. Let's riff on it!

I don't know much 'bout the artsy films, man
Lots of weird scenes dense with symbols, 'fraid it's
Not enough bang there for my money
Like this one so crummy, it made me flip out (hey)
It stars Casey Affleck and Matt Damon
On a trail to see "the thing"
And what do they see?
Bland scenes, dread scenes where no-one speaks (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah), yeah (ooh-ooh-ooh)

Hey, my brain leaks
Out my ear, I see too-long shots, help me
These two men named Gerry drag out ev'ry scene
Ev'ry borin' scene (pains to see)
Friggin' tumbleweeds, not a joke, you see
You see them in Gerry, this film plain hates me
Driftin' off to sleep (sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep)

Oh-oh, yeah

Based on real guys? Still hatin' it
Don't care if these assholes fail to live
Well, one does, whoops, just spoiled it
Guess what? Guess what? I don't give a shit (hey)
Wander 'round so much desert, I need a drink
One gets stuck on a rock quite big
But will he make it down alright?
I feel my brain pool in my feet (ah-ah-ooh)

Hey, please tell me
Was the plot conceived on a napkin sheet?
So little to Gerry, approaches obscene
Dialogue? Oh geez (barely speak)
Not enough to read any deep thoughts, please
Know they're both named Gerry but that's all, you see
I'm so close to sleep (sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep)

Each take is dreck, damn, why's the pace slow (slow pace)?
Film, you douche (you blow), you loathe me
Paid for pain, I see (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Soundtrack's absent, movie's a lame joke
Might sound rude (I know), don't care, see
Drained out all of me
Feels like six days (feels to me)
Since I pressed "play", blows (that there's no relief)
Feels like fumes (from these dragged out scenes) (film blows, you know)
Got to me (why did I watch Gerry?)
Hate all that I see (curiosity) (hate it)
Feel too bored to sleep
But I wanna sleep
Film won't let me sleep
Gus Van Sant, curse thee

Think I'll pass out

Seriously, though: google "brows held high gerry" and watch both of his reviews. Funny, informative stuff.
