GOLDEN Globe-winning musical La La Land is fast becoming the film you will go to any lengths not to watch in 2017.
The film, which has also received 11 Bafta nominations and is tipped for Oscars, has been named by moviegoers as the one film they will desperately avoid but end up seeing regardless.
Martin Bishop of Stafford says: “Great, another award-winning film where Hollywood sucks its own dick about how fantastic it is.
“Big musical numbers about the life of an actor? Heartbreaking ballads about the struggle to make it in Tinseltown? Boy, as a self-employed mechanic in the East Midlands I sure can identify with those universal themes.
“But you just know it’ll win everything and the wife’ll want to see it and even if I dodge it at the cinema it’ll be on streaming or DVD and even if I avoid those it’ll be shown on a plane.
“Fuck. This is The Artist all over again.”
An industry spokesman said: “And don’t forget interminable arthouse films this awards season, like grief drama Manchester-by-the-Sea. It really is as awful as it sounds.”
