Overreact much?

crying-baby2.jpgLast week, Dustin complained about parents who bring their screaming babies to the movies. Well a fella from my hometown feels your pain, Dustin, as Philadelphian (EAGLES!) James Joseph Ciaelell is now facing six charges, including aggravated assault and attempted murder:

A man enraged by a noisy family sitting near him in a movie theater on Christmas night shot the father of the family in the arm, police said.
Police said Cialella told the man’s family to be quiet, then threw popcorn at the man’s son. The victim, whom television reports identified as Woffard Lomax, told police that Cialella was walking toward his family when he stood up and was shot.

That’s a bit over the top, yes, but I think we all understand where his rage was coming from.

For the curious among you, the movie was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

(Hat tip to readers Sharon and Katherin. Sharon thinks the dude needs a chill pill, while Katherin takes some hometown pride in a real-to-life rolling out of the MurderTank.)

Has nobody commented on how gay for Brad Pitt this guy must be? Cinephile my ass.

My son in law told me that's is not the movie theater to go to if you want quiet in the audience. Maybe it'll be better now.
