Lost In Translation

Last weekend we picked up a pirated copy of the Steve Carell - Tina Fey romantic comedy "Date Night." Though we generally hate both romance and laughter, we were drawn in by the boxcover synopsis:

"A spaceship crash lands on a planet. The only survior is Kainan (Jim Caviezel), a warrior who carries with him Moorwen, a monstrous creature sworn to avenge the death of his species. When Kainan leave his ship to try and kill the beast, he realizes he has landed on Earth during the Age of the Vikings."

We assumed that explained the stunned look on Steve Carell's face. Also, according to the box cover, "Date Night" was directed by Roland Emmerich. Alas, we slogged through an hour and 45 minutes without a single vengeful Moorwen to be found, and are heading back to that intersection to get our 20 pesos refunded.
