Last night we saw Dreamgirls and liked it a lot. It's like going to a Broadway musical. Did not know Eddie Murphy could sing! Jamie Foxx is awesome and Jennifer Hudson deserves the best supporting award in her break out film.

I finally saw Talladega Nights and The Wedding Crashers last weekend. Talladega Nights was pretty funny but it wasn't as hysterical as I thought it would be. The Wedding Crashers was an absolute riot! I watched the unrated version so I'm not exactly sure what was in the theatrical version but I could probably guess. Also, for you adrenaline junkies, I'd recommend a documentary called Dust to Glory which follows a Baja 1000 race. Except for a brief history on the race, it's literally a high-speed off-road ride from start to finish and the cinematography is amazing. Very cool!

Last night I watched a TV movie that I had taped on Lifetime and it was called "What It Is Like To Be Fat." I thought it was done very well and I am glad that I had taped it.

The Queen. Seem to drag on IMO but Helen Mirren 's performance was exceptional.

In the theater: Night at the Museum
At home: Trainspotting (great film...less graphic than Requiem for a Dream, but same sort of idea...)

I have been netflixing Prime Suspect with Helen Mirren. A series that used to be on PBS - she's so good in them. Wish they would come back.

Barbara, we get the Prime Suspect series on PBS here occasionally, usually during Beg Week. Excellent show.
