How naive I was two weeks ago to think that Paula would be the most offensive thing Robin Thicke ever did. Little did I know he made his acting debut in a movie opposite Jaime Pressly called Abby in the Summer in 2012 that wasn't released until this year. And of course by released I mean it was dumped into the depths of on-demand obscurity.
A clip of Thicke's "work" in Abby in the Summer (now running under the title, Making the Rules) have hit the internet thanks to Vulture, and oh boy, this is special.
In one word, Thicke is horrible in this movie, which looks like a 73-minute course on so-bad-it's-amazing filmmaking. But I can't figure out how he's so bad, considering he's playing himself, a sleezy, theoretically good-looking dude who's down with infidelity and stalks an ex-girlfriend incessantly until she agrees to sleep with him.
In this clip you will see: Robin Thicke staring, Robin Thicke whispering at times that don't call for whispering, Robin Thicke laughing in the middle of his lines, and Jaime Pressly shooting concerned/uncomfortable looks to someone off-camera as if to say, "Someone's going to walk me to my car after this, right?"
THICKE — WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST PRETEND THIS WAS REAL LIFE!?
