    Okay, you can’t blame The Road for being poor. It’s an impossible novel to film.
    Gervais is right, but I think he won’t be able to resist the temptation in the end.

    your comment about The Road smells like bullshit to me. if there’s actually any kind of word on the film then give us names and quotes, otherwise dont jump on the “it’s gonna suck” bandwagon just because the release was delayed.

    Tony relax, it’s part of what we do here. Unsubstantiated rumours. If you want a genuine and proven opinion read the review in print when it’s released.
