There's pretty much no denying that David Mamet is a brilliant writer, at least not as far as I'm concerned, but I do find his over-reliance on profanity a little distracting at times. Colorful and amusing, sure, but also a little ... much. And after chuckling through this faux trailer for a movie called Glen & Garry & Glen & Ross, I see that I'm not the only one who finds the X-rated Mamet-speak a little ... much.

From the exceedingly clever knuckleheads who brought you the fake trailers to Must Love Jaws and 10 Things I Hate About Commandments comes this preview about four Tourette's-afflicted businessmen (Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin and Jack Lemmon) who find an unlikely hero in a demanding new therapist (Alec Baldwin). Suffice to say that I found this clip a) very clever, b) very funny and c) most definitely not safe for workplaces, nurseries, churches or playgrounds. To say there's a lot of F-bombs in this mock trailer is kind of like saying there's lots of syllables in a David Mamet screenplay -- but if, like me, you've seen Glengarry Glen Ross at least six times, I bet you'll find this mini-spoof quite appealing. And before you dismiss this clip as just minor movie geekery, take a second to contemplate how easy it is to alter a film's story, tone and presentation -- using only some new music cues and some very clever editing.
