Movie vs. Moving

Well, no movie review this week, faithful readers (if we have any). Our weekend was spent moving my sister and brother-in-law from the northwest suburbs of Chicago to good ole Lafayette, IN. An exhausting experience from Friday morning until Sunday afternoon, it left me too pooped to sit in a theater. I did watch School for Scoundrels on DVD from the couch, however I cannot recommend that movie in any possible way. The ending was a total dud, so I was excited to see that the DVD special features contained an alternate ending. Hoping for a little more entertainment and much better writing, I began to watch ending #2 and wanted to drill into my brain by the end because it was so horrible. It also didn't help this weekend that there wasn't any movie of any real worth opening near us. I don't expect that to be the case in two weeks with 3:10 to Yuma (hopefully they don't butcher Elmore Leonard like the last few movies based on his novels), however this weekend is limited to Balls of Fury, which, I'm guessing since it was supposed to originally released much earlier in the summer, isn't as good as it could be. Then again, who needs movies when Purdue football kicks off this Saturday?!

I admit, i stumbled on to your blog and have been a 'faithful reader' as you put it for the past month or so. I 'wave hand' recommend Superbad. Its like American Pie, but crossed with 40 yr old virgin and much more nerdy and weird.

Per your recommendation, we will be seeing Superbad this weekend :) I love the clip on the trailer where the kid "tells the girl what time it is." Hilarious!Thanks Ash!
