So, I was a little surprised to see that The Hottest State, the movie written and directed by Ethan Hawke, featuring Ethan Hawke, and adapted from the novel of the same name penned by none other than Ethan Hawke (who even went so far as to “review” the flick for Esquire), was one of “Today’s Top Searches” on Yahoo!
Are there that many people interested in a limited-release movie written by the actor who embodied 90’s slackerdom? (I still love Reality Bites, btw.) Though, tellingly, it did rank below pot roast…mmm, pot roast!
Ethan, though I’m sure you’re intent on driving traffic towards your labor of love, step away from the computer! Leave the search engines be!
Also: the film has a Rotten Tomatoes ranking of 42 %. Eek.
