Funniest review ever in the Willamette Week. I haven't seen this movie yet and may not even see it when it comes out on DVD or whatever. And the reviewer for the W.W. newspaper hadn't seen it either when he wrote his review. So he did the next best thing: He asked a geophysicist about it.
Here are the first few lines from the review:
Read on. I promise you'll love it. Then let me know if you decide to see the movie and, if so, what you think of it.San Andreas didn’t screen by our press deadline, despite my repeated letters to the president of Hollywood insisting that an alternative Portland newsweekly is the true center of the cinematic universe, so I made a geophysicist watch the trailer and tell me what he thought. Robert F. Butler is a professor of geophysics at the University of Portland, and he definitely had better things to do.WW: What did you think?Robert F. Butler: It’s the typical Hollywood fabrication with only a kernel of truth.What’s the kernel of truth?There is a San Andreas fault.
