New Movie The Vice.

Recommended Posts

May be this should have went to Silly town? It could get silly? 🙄

 

Ok the preview on TV shows Cheney sitting in a SUV when he lets off the shot to Harry Whittington but all accounts of it was they were in the field Quail hunting. Which was it?

 

I would think if the writer went off on a falsehood they could be held for Liable.

I'm just really interested to know if they are going to portray him as just shooting the guy in the face while sitting in the SUV. I'm not sure how that wouldn't start a big pile of craap flying since they all said it was an accident in the field.

I'm guessing there is a lot more to the movie than just that one scene........

 

Me? I'd rather go see Clint Eastwood's The Mule.

The Lawyer Dick Cheney Shot in the Face Says He’s Definitely Going to See ‘Vice’

Harry Whittington told the Daily Mail that he doesn't expect the scene showing his shooting to be accurate.

With Christian Bale and Amy Adams front and center, plus six Golden Globe nominations, “Vice” is expected to bring in quite the crowd when it opens in theaters Christmas Day, and one person who will definitely be buying a movie ticket is Harry Whittington. The 91-year-old former lawyer was 78 when he got shot in the face by Vice President Dick Cheney during a 2006 quail hunt in Riviera, Texas.

 

“I’m planning to watch it and some of my daughters have talked about going to see it after watching the trailer,” Whittington told the Daily Mail. “I told them I would go with them. We don’t know much about the film and have not been contacted by the producers. The trailer is not exactly what happened and there was no automobile involved.”

The official “Vice” trailer includes a brief scene of Bale’s Cheney sitting in a car and accidentally firing his weapon. The actual incident, dubbed “Quailgate” by the media, occurred on February 11, 2006. Cheney allegedly fired at what he thought was a bird in the sky but ended up shooting 150 birdshot pellets at Whittington.

 

“We were behind some bird dogs and were walking along, the Vice President was off to my left side,” Whittington recalled of the accident. “I saw him swing his gun toward a bird which flew up. I remember that motion and then smelling the gunpowder. I woke up and I was in an ambulance on the way to hospital.”

 

Whittington had to have surgery to remove the pellets from his face and body. The lawyer also suffered a heart attack because of the lead that found its way into his blood vessels.

 

“I still have a few pellets in my body but they are not causing any problems,” Whittington added. “I have no hard feelings toward the Vice President. It was 12 years ago but it’s one of those stories that doesn’t go away. I had been hunting for 50 years before this happened and it was an accident, I can see how it can happen.”

 

“Vice,” directed by Adam McKay, opens in theaters December 25 via Annapurna Pictures.

I saw the movie. Honestly I think it was terribly written and came off as being a total smear on Cheney. It also seemed to be a sequel to the Dubya movie. They portrayed Cheney as somewhat of a bumbling fool with little to nothing to say throughout the majority of the movie.

 

If this is the best the left can come up with, just wait until the 3rd rendition comes out about Trump.

Thanks for the review.

How did they portray the shooting?  Was he sitting in a SUV or out in the field as was reported at the time?

Leech,

 

He was sitting in an SUV with the door open. It was only short blurb of the incident. They then cut to Whittington apologizing for the incident.

I guess that is my point of this thread, that the writer-producer of the movie should be sued for slander if the shooting was an accident in the field hunting and all there reported it as such. Or Cheney needed to go to jail for attempted manslaughter if he indeed did just pull on the guy while sitting in the SUV.  Not sure why he's not making a big stink and suing this producer, or he just wants it to go away? It will be interesting to see if anything comes out of this movie?

    • I’d say it depends on how fast we want results and what the public will tolerate.  I do think a closure during their most vulnerable time is worth serious consideration.  We close the season for other fish for the same reason.  Now we’re realizing the never ending supply of quality panfish does really have an end.   It’s really going to be up to us to understand and accept the facts about how we affect the fisheries.  Getting this information out there and talking with each other is a big help.  I personally know several people who have changed their view on filling the live well or bucket with the most and biggest panfish they can to self imposed limits.  But I also know several people who are still proud as can be to bring home that pile of upper end fish, and worse yet making several repeat trips and bringing others with to do the same.  It’s hard to tell friends what their doing isn’t helpful.   One group of people can substantially fish down smaller lakes in 1-3 years and they’re fine with that.  On to the next lake.  I literally heard that just yesterday.  The limit was dropped on that particular lake to 5 this spring and that has curbed the number of trips they’ve been taking out there.  To me, it doesn’t get to be any clearer than that.   Minky, your practice sounds like what we need to get that 10% group of takers to adopt.
    • Wanderer, any ideas? Would the reduced limit and one over 9 or 10 inches be enough? Should there be a short season closure in the late winter / early spring?  Only catch and release in May and June. I love catching them, eating a few and releasing the rest.
    • here is a new idea to try:  
    • I would have to say that Wanderer is the biggest turkey so he gets my vote. 😀
    • I was out at a local lake last night and found the gills on beds with a few crappies mixed in.  I was learning the lake and planned on keeping moving and targeting bass but couldn’t resist pulling a few pannies in.  As always it was fun but I didn’t keep any and ran into several beds. They were topping out at a solid 8 inches on the board.   As I moved along I could see someone down the line, I thought maybe he was fishing bass also but he didn’t move until I got within about 75 yards.  When I got to the spot he was fishing there was another set of beds but I couldn’t see a fish on them.  Threw my bait in and didn’t get bit.     I’ve been that guy before but I’ve seen that scenario play out too many times to be OK with it anymore.  I know the panfish get hammered all winter and that’s probably putting the biggest hurt on the population but stripping the beds is something we really need to curb IMO.
    • Yes - absolutely thank you to Borch for running this again!   And thanks to everyone who entered!  Having the contest and getting some encouragement helped me get more back in tune to the spring turkey season than I have been lately.  And learn the lesson (again) to not under estimate what’s available and what can happen for anyone.
    • Yes- a cheap go pro knock off. 
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Thanks once again Borch for doing this. 
    • If I could only keep 5 or 10 sunnies this size (around 7 1/2) for the increased chance to catch & release 10+ inch sunnies it would be worth it!
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Shoot Rick a PM to make arrangements for your prize.     Thanks everyone!  It was a challenging but fun season.
