Poor Bastards of Cinema: The Adventures of Ford Fairlane

Animal cruelty is not funny.  Coincidentally, neither is The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.

As part of the 'everything goes wrong' part that comes in the Second Act of a film screenplay, Ford loses everything he owns.  That includes his pet Koala, a gift from INXS...
This act of violence is so despicable that even the idiot character of the film- no, not Clay- finds this disturbing.
As if that wasn't bad enough, it's revealed that the Koala didn't die.  That may sound good, but it ends up on a cruise with Clay.  Oh, the humanity!
This poor, puppet animal can't catch a break!  Why can't you leave dead, puppet animals alone?!?

Next up, a group of reporters push too hard for a story and pay the price.  They bring their inexplicable girlfriends along for the ride, just to raise the body count.  Stay tuned...
