    Oh, yes! I meant Sleeping Beauty. I'm not sure where the Cinderella thing came from.

However, at the end of the day I have to agree that it sounds like this movie will be awful.
    I've never read the books, never had an interest, but the other night I decided to download the free sample on my Kindle just to see what the hype was about. I couldn't even finish the sample it was so bad, I definitely won't bother seeing the movie.

    The prison's serve a lot of starches. You would be surprised how many come out of jail/prison with a weight gain.

    Not the only woman. I have had absolutely no interest in reading the series.

    I work at a library, I have not read the books, but several librarian's did for Reader's advisory. None got past the first book and all said it was horribly written, yet our patrons read it in droves. We own 6 copies and had more but some never came back or got damaged. I don't have a problem when someone wants a fun read, but for some people this is their ONLY read. Not going to see the movie!

    I struggled through the first chapter, but couldn't get any further. It was unreadable to me.

    I don't believe that they will actually make him serve any time. I'll have to see it to believe it. The prosecutors in DC may take the matter seriously, but I can't see the probation people in CA doing anything to him at all.

    Plus, he's not Lindsay Lohan or a Lindsay Lohan look-alike.
