    What I liked about "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was one very small moment around which I think the whole film hinged.


    *Spoiler alert - Do NOT scroll down if you haven't watched it and don't want it ruined for you.*





    It comes when Toulah and Ian are dining on their first date and Ian offers to take Toulah to the restaurant her parents owned, where she herself was a waitress admiring him from afar.

    Instead of going into some bananas scheme to lie to Ian about who owned the restaurant and what she did there, she owns up to being the "frumpy" waitress and gauges his reaction.

    In any other "romantic comedy", "lying about who I am, covering it up, and then winning his trust back" would have been the scheme. I even expected it, inwardly groaning.

    Imagine my delight when it wasn't.

    The creators even talk about it on the commentary track of the DVD.

    Bonus: Nice little bit of cinema when she tells him about the restaurant and we zoom in on his reaction. The creators hold the suspense a moment longer as we watch his face, and another restaurant patron passes in front of the camera. When he moves, we see this change in Ian's face when he realizes who she is. Nice!

    I saw Bloodwork the other night, it might have been the most predicatble of all predictable movies I have ever seen. Other then that it was an ok movie, would have been better if the twist wasn't so obvious.

    I just watched "An Evening with Kevin Smith". It's a stand-up Q & A about the films he has made. This guy is really entertaining! I was laughing all the way through it.
    If you like his movies (Mallrats, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), you should watch this one.

    It's really funny.

    itsmejean,

    What is "Pinero"?

    ***

    Saw "Sweet Home Alabama" for the first time the other night.

    Being a resident of Alabama, I of course had to see Hollywood's latest portrayal of the great and sovereign state of Alabama, even if I am only a transplant, and not a native.

    The movie itself I found a bit wooden, even though it managed to pull a laugh out of me a time or two. Then again, even a broken clock is right twice a day...

    As for how they portrayed Alabama--it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I've certainly seen worse cough-cough MyCousinVinny cough.

    Sweet Home Alabama and Feeling Minnessota [check spelling]

    it came to me that they both have 'state' names

    Perhaps you should also rent "My Own Private Idaho" and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade."
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    I didn't rent it, but I watched "The Sweetest Thing" last night on a movie channel. What a strange, wierd, odd movie.

    Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate. Very strange. They had the "penis song", and it went on for about 10 minutes way too long.

    I thought The Sweetest Thing was pretty funny. I think the only reason I liked it was because it was a little strange. I thought Selma Blair was hilarious. I agree about the penis song. They could have cut that scene entirely.
    Im haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.
