Wow! Chris Rock Found By the Sea's Only Fan!

Until roughly 15 minutes ago, I thought the only people who saw a final cut of By the Sea in its entirety were Angelina Jolie, her assistants, and our very own Rich Juzwiak. And of that handful of viewers, I didn’t think anyone actually enjoyed it.

But thanks to a bit Chris Rock just did during tonight’s Oscars, I know Jolie’s masterpiece of nonverbal acting has at least one fan. During a “person on the street” clip, after he asked a black woman what her “Favorite white movie of the year” was, she says, “By the Sea! With Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!”


Without missing a beat, Chris Rock responds, “Wow. Not even they would say that.”

I imagine Pitt and Jolie saying something more along the lines of, “By the Sea? What’s that?”

What do you mean? I LOVE by the sea. Take it from me.

Down here all the fish is happy
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain’t happy
They sad ‘cause they in their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who’s gon’ be on the plate?

Under the sea...under the....oh....I see now that I was thinking of something else.
