Movie Reviews and Radio

I had a disagreement with my former boss Jay today. He insists that I see the movie "Radio" starring Cuba Gooding Jr. as a retarded man. When he first mentioned it in conversation I laughed heartily, thinking that surely Jay was jesting. He was not. I refused to see the manipulative piece of tripe. Jay says he will refund the purchase price of my ticket should I see the movie and not like it. I then shared with him my friend Eric D. Snider's review of "Radio." The review made Jay angry. And with good reason, it completely lampoons a movie that he enjoyed. However, Jay took his kids to see Kangaroo Jack. This constitutes a major judgment error and makes it difficult for me to accept movie recommendations from him.
