How to fix Watchmen

Saw Watchmen last night. The audience I watched it with (in a 2/3-empty theater) lasted about 90 minutes before it started laughing at the film, rather than taking it seriously. A little comic relief would have helped diffuse all the splattering blood.

Actually, I’m not sure how to have fixed this movie. Rewrite the Columbo-esque dialogue at the ending? Come up with a soundtrack that doesn’t sound like it was sourced from the MP3 collection on the LAN in my college dorm? Make Dr. Manhattan wear pants?

Here’s one person’s hilarious idea: Make it a Saturday Morning cartoon! (Video below.)
