What's warm, wet, soft, smelly and weighs seven pounds...?

I'm surprised and, obviously, grateful that the bright sparks behind all those sub- Scary Movie spin-offs, those Date Movies and Disaster Movies,  never got it together to concoct an  Oscar Movie. The material is all there: a mentally-challenged, severely handicapped single mother overcomes unbelievable odds, fights the prejudice of the times, escapes from a concentration camp and wins the hearts of the nation with her skill as a country singing children's author and painter.

And now they'll never get the chance. Will Smith has ruined it for them.  Seven Pounds is the funniest, most desperately self-sacrificing, false-Messiah-ing, death-by-jellyfish-ing attempt at an Oscar grab EVER!!!
