Today's Penny Arcade is poignantly true, I can attest:
About the only thing I am certain of is that Epic knows how to make my son spend his allowance money on them.
The only real consolation is that Dad in this case is me, and I happen to love the terribad realm that most Nick Cage movies fall into (I'm still thinking about the sheer awesome-crazy of Mandy). So I am okay with my kid watching Ghost Rider (as long as I don't have to do it a second time!)
I do draw the line at Con Air, though. Hated that one!
