Poor Ben Affleck. When it was announced that the long-awaited “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” was going to star Batfleck, the nerdosphere went bananas with outrage. But I stood with him because literally everyone who’s ever been cast as the Batman has garnered the same reaction. Plus he’s a talented guy and a comics fan whom I had full faith in to deliver the goods.

But in spite of Affleck’s efforts, the film is getting horrible reviews. And you can tell from the look in his eyes he was not expecting to have to answer to them in what’s supposed to be a puff piece publicity interview with some Harry Potter-sounding entertainment reporter. And now, he’s Sadfleck.

It’s going to take a lot of trips on a private jet with his hot nanny and Tom Brady to put a smile back on his face.

I’m still sad about the passing of the great Garry Shandling. I was a fan of his going back to his self-titled sitcom through to his last performances in the “Iron Man” movies. But he was never better than as the funny, smarmy and ego manical title character in his game-changing HBO series “The Larry Sanders Show.” I didn’t want to just post solemn tribute. Instead, I’ll go with funny. And this is one of his best moments ever. Godspeed.

ABC NewsA North Carolina man says he was arrested for not returning a video cassette tape he rented 14 years ago.

James Meyers Jr., a single dad from Concord, said he was driving his 10-year-old daughter to school at around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when police pulled him over for a broken brake light. Meyers gave the police officers his driver’s license and was shocked when they said there was a warrant out for his arrest for not returning a VHS rental, “Freddy Got Fingered,” from 2002, he said.

“They were chitchatting with me and talking about how ridiculous this is,” Meyers told ABC News today. “Then they arrested me.”

Nice try, James Meyers. I don’t judge a man by the length of his hair or his beard or the kind on music he listens to. Rock was never my bag. But you think you should get off scot-free for renting the worst movie ever made 14 years ago and never returning it? Let me tell you something, funny boy. You know that little sticker on the cover? The one that says “Blockbuster”? Well, that may not mean anything to you, but that means a lot to me. One whole helluva lot. Sure, go ahead, laugh if you want to. I’ve seen your type before. Flashy. Making the scene. Flaunting convention.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Why’s this guy making such a big stink about old VHS tapes?” Let me give you a hint, junior. Maybe we can live without video stores, people like you and me. Maybe. Sure, we’re too old to change the world. What about that kid, sitting down, looking to pop “Freddy Got Fingered” into his VCR. Doesn’t he deserve better?

Look, if you think this is about overdue fines and missing books, you’d better think again. This is about that kid’s right to watch the worst movie ever made on obsolete technology. Or maybe that turns you on, Meyers. Maybe that’s how you get your kicks. You and your good time buddies. Well, I’ve got a flash for you, joy boy. Party time is over.
