"A Maverick Cop..."

Max Payne opens this weekend. I'm not a video game guy...

...unless we're talking Asteroids, Ms. Pac-Man and the Atari 2600 version of Pitfall, which was my favorite game to play as a kid because Pitfall Harry ran and swam in PERFECT time to the music of Toni Basil's Mickey...

...so I didn't know anything about this new vehicle for Mark "Just Drop Your Pants and Be a Calvin Klein Underwear Model Again" Wahlberg.

This is the synopsis I found on Fandango...

"A maverick cop faces a supernatural battle when he descends into a dark underworld to find those who killed his family and his partner."

Maverick?!? Dear sweet Jesus. That word is popping up everywhere. Playing the Maverick Drinking Game is kicking my ass.

I honest-to-God think they picked the word because he reminds them of a Maverick--he's old, ugly, breaks down a lot, doesn't run properly, and even a pretty lady can't get him going.
