Wisdom from the Digital Cable Guide

Occasionally in my down time, I scroll through the channels on the little Digital Cable Guide to see what is on television. And occasionally, the descriptions of the shows and movies are pretty informative. Other times, not so much. Sometimes, I don't know. I often wonder who writes these things and how much they are paid for what they do.

Once, it listed the movie "Friday the 13th, Part VI". The description was something to the effect of:
Teen raises mass murderer from the dead. Slaughter ensues.
Uh, yeah. Straight, to the point.

The listing for "Deliverance" was even more interesting. The description said:
Four Atlanta businessmen encounter unexpected terrors while making their way down an Appalachian river.
Hehe unexpected terrors. If that isn't the understatement of the century. I guess it's true that just as Jaws made you not want to ever go into the water, Deliverance made you not want to ever vacation in Appalachia.
