What an insult to the actual leads in this film to call it “Reese Witherspoon’s Mud.” She has a very small part.

This just more PR spin and damage control. This is going to go on for awhile.

# 3

Reese’s new name is Mud. “Do you know my naaaaaaaame?”

# 4

It’s Matthew M. movie! He is the one getting possible Oscar buzz! Not Mrs. Prissy Pants Drunkspoon!

I saw Mud this past weekend and really liked it. Matthew McConaughey was good of course but the young boys really blew me away. They were excellent. Well acted by really all including Reese’s small part. I hope the film does well because it was a gem.
