The Jonas Brother is a trio of douche bags that think they are really cool and talented kids. They are also unfortunately getting their bigscreen debut, 20th Century Fox actually signed these guys onto a movie based on the book ‘Walter the Farting Dog’. I guess its right up their ally. I think the movie title will end up being ‘Jonas the Farting Brothers’.
The most shocking news about this whole thing though is that it is being directed by The Farrelly Brothers! Maybe it’s not so shocking if you look at the movies they have made recently. The best movies they did was ‘Dumb and Dumber’ and ‘What About Mary’. The rest have pretty much sucked. But to do a movie like this with the Jonas Brothers? They must have hit rock bottom. Hopefully if they have any dignity left they wont go through with this.
The Jonas Brothers have become wildly popular through the boy band’s appearances playing music and acting in such Disney Channel programming as the telepic "Camp Rock." Frankie — known as the bonus Jonas — has also gained a profile appearing with his brothers.
The title character in the "Walter" books is a fat dog with severe flatulence. The brothers play musicians whose parents are asked to care for the dog by an aunt just before she passes away.
"By the time they’ve driven the dog home, everybody’s head is out the window of the family station wagon but Frankie, and only because he has a serious sinus problem and doesn’t notice the stench coming from Walter," said Peter Farrelly.
While his brothers play music, Frankie and the gaseous hound get involved in a plot that involves liberating a koi fish and thwarting jewel thieves.
Fox sees this thing a potential franchise. I see it as a potential bomb. It is a given the movie will suck so do the Jonas brothers have the power to fill the audience seats? Lets be honest here, they are no Zac Efron.
