That’s Depressing Dedication 

When I read about the possibility of a Family Circus movie, I cracked a joke:

A live-action Family Circus movie? Who would go see that?

Not Me.

Of course, the trouble with that joke is that it betrays a too-deep knowledge of Bil Keane’s awful, awful comic. Self-immolation is obviously the only option, but before I go, I ned to point out the saddest fact revealed by the article. It’s not that a movie is going to be made, but that producer-to-be John Baldecchi spent two years wearing down the resistant Keanes.
