Terribly Mistaken Description, Time Warner


After seeing the movie, would you agree on this one sentence description in TW cable's guide: "A rape victim is saved from suicide in Manhattan by a simpleminded mechanic who gives her love."???!!!

reply

The Dish Network on-screen guide reads the same way. It bothers me too.

reply

I have Comcast (Xfinity) and their onscreen guide is notoriously inaccurate and unreliable.

A particular pet peeve of mine is when they rate a film one star and then include a description stating how good the movie is. Why even bother to provide ratings? Their synopsis are frequently incorrect as well.

reply

If by "gives her love", they mean "kidnap and attempt to drunkenly rape", then yes, it's an accurate description.

reply

Exactly! Maybe the tyke who wrote this and other erroneous movie descriptions does so by fast forwarding the DVD and gleaning a "good enough" summary. They should simply use IMDb's!!
