Movie review: ‘The Mule’ is a boring, racist melodrama

The first line uttered in Clint Eastwood's "The Mule" is from Earl Stone (Eastwood), who greets one of the workers on his daylily farm: "Hey Jose, what's with the taco wagon? It's like you were born to be deported." Then Jose and Earl laugh, which is how all of Earl's many wildly racist remarks are treated in "The Mule." It's as if they're completely harmless, because Earl's just a curmudgeonly old timer who just doesn't know better. Or does he? Regardless, hundreds of people are responsible for "The Mule," who very much should have known better than to release this bizarre, offensive debacle.
