The Beaver

Thoughts that went through my head while watching this trailer (in order):

Is this Mel Gibson's biopic? 


Oh man, this is so meta.  

The main character's name should be Lem not Walter. 

A hand puppet?

With a British accent?

Am I watching a Funny or Die sketch? 

Oh my goodness- this is for real. 

Does Mel Gibson ever blink?

I can't believe the line, "this is a joke, right?" made the trailer.

Is this going to have some sort of horrific twist? Is "the beaver" going to start slaying everyone? 

Man, Jodie Foster is such a good friend.

"I fought for you! And I will continue to fight for you because I love you!" Sooo meta

I wonder if The Beaver will be worse than Maverick. 

Not possible.


  1. I'm speechless. and that takes a lot. wow.

  2. I'd also like to point out that that youtube trailer only has 63 viewings... three of which are clearly from your TBET. well done.

  3. Y'all. Y'all! Isn't weird to think that people devoted time to make this. I'm not 100 percent sure what a Best Boy or a Key Grip actually does, but I bet 90 percent of the time they were rolling their eyes. And Jodie Foster! Taxi Driver! The Accused! Silence of the Lambs!

    Oh how the mighty have fallen . . .

    I do think she's an awfully good friend though.

  4. This movie IS the beaver.
    Mel Gibson is so deep.
    Wrist deep.
    In a beaver.
