I tried to watch The Wackness yesterday and I had to pull the plug on it about an hour in. None of the characters were likeable. My first clue that this movie was gonna suck was when one of the Olsen twins showed up in the movie. She played a flower child/pot head (probably not much of a stretch). Ben Kingsley must have really needed a paycheck because even his character was shallow and too stupid to be believed. And I usually love him.

Toots would give this movie a 3.5 - not great.

I definitely agree, and I hope it wins best picture next month at the awards.
I have a couple of friends who have not seen it yet so I promised them I'll put it on after the Super Bowl game this Sunday.

Bucket List was good! Slumdog Millionaire is about the game show Who wants to be a millinaire India version. The contestant is a low caste and ends up winning the top prize.

We watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with sing-a-long captions. It was quite funny to see 2 50-year olds and a 20-something sitting around the tv singing! We also had fun looking for Bond characters since the story is by Ian Fleming and Cubby Broccoli produced. Mr. Coggins the junkman is played by "Q" and Baron Bomburst is played by "Goldfinger"
