Angry Birds movies? Wow. Too far... keep it to Apps... and toys.... and whatever they are selling now.

I wonder when the craze will die? It's lasted longer than I thought it would.

Or Jim Carrey?

Three years is a long time in mobile app years. I wonder if the Angry Bird franchise will have lost its popularity by then?
Yeah lol it may be jim too either one would get the part. Or maybe Eddie murphy.

I wish someone would tell them how to use the iCloud API (even between the iPhone, iPad and Mac apps)

Honestly, I feel like the toys and other merchandise are too much. It's an app, for a phone. Do we really need plush toys in the checkout line at Target?

I wonder who will play angry bird. Adam Sandler maybe?

Kevin Bacon. The guys in everything!

I just can't imagine a movie about Angry Birds though. I mean, they don't really talk, and there's no real plot other then get the eggs back from the pigs.

Games with equal or less plots have been made into movies. They were all complete crap, as most video game adaptations in general are, but still... :rolleyes:
