Movie so bad it skips going straight to DVD and goes straight to HBO

Why did Liberace play the piano?

Because he sucked on the organ*.

HBO has picked up director Steven Soderbergh's Liberace film "Behind the Candelabra."

Starring Michael Douglas as the performer, the HBO film will also star Matt Damon as Liberace's lover, Scott Thorson. Completed script is by Richard LaGravenese, who has penned several bigscreen films including "The Fisher King" and, more recently, "Water for Elephants."

Beware tho, they're still going to try to scam the unwary...

After debuting on HBO, "Candelabra" will get a theatrical release outside the U.S. and Canada. Plan is for HBO Enterprises to sell the pic to independent distributors. Production is set to begin next summer.
