When is too much Harry Potter too much (never I scream)? It would seem that for one film criticopens in new window that time would be now. This particular critic is tired of all the commotion, marketing and magazine covers. He complains of adult’s dressing-up and going on and on about the books, yet these same people fail to read any other books and finally he meets someone who feels the same way he does.

Harry Potter, is not simply a character in a kid's book anymore. Harry Potter is a multinational corporation and he's spying on you in order to market himself to you more effectively. You will have the Diet Coke with his face on the can and you will think about his magic. You'll feel that magic with every sip and you'll come back to that Diet Coke for more magical Harry feelings later, kind of like how actual Diet Coke makes you hungry and then thirsty for more Diet Coke. Soon you're like a really dumb dog chasing its own tail until you pass out.
