It's okay BuckyT, last weekend I watched Dr. Dolittle (actually both versions, which shows how bored I am!). I still have "Talk to the Animals" and "Push-me-Pull-you" going through my head!

Last night we watched "Failure to Launch" (Matthew MacConaughey, Sarah Jessica Parker). It's got a great supporting cast, including Kathy Bates and Terry Bradshaw. (Yeah, the football guy.) It was better than I expected although I must say Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't look very good through this movie.

I picked up "Hairspray" at a yard sale on DVD for 50 cents. It was in a very thin case but it looked liked something you would ordinarily buy at a store. The cover and back were professionally done and you couldn't tell the difference except there was a store price sticker on it--$1.00. SO, I watched it last night and boy was there a difference! About half way through the film, shadows appeared that were first a man getting up out of his seat and walking toward what looked like a movie screen. Then 2 men got up and walked around covering up what was really appearing on the screen. It must have been a pirated copy of the movie and taken during a showing at a movie theater. I've never seen that before. "Hairspray" (Travolta) was wonderful and the sound was just fine but the film quality was off; it was a little grainy. Travolta sounded as if all the putty and make-up he wore must have restricted his voice because he sounded as it it did. SOmetimes I just couldn't understand what he was saying. Christopher Walken was delightful. It was nice to see him dance again because he started out as a dancer. I saw him years ago starring in a revival of the old college musical "Best Foot Forward" with Liza Minelli (Lucille Ball starred in the film version) off-broadway.
I suppose that's how these pirated copies come out. I never cared for the original "Hairspray" that much; it was fun but it didn't jump like this one and move smoothly. Queen Latifah's vocals have certainly improved since "Chiacago"; she stoled the film, and if that was really Michelle Pfeiffer's voice, wow!!! Loved this movie.

steamboater, yes she is! Ruth Buzzi - Biography

a lot of people joke about sarah jessica parker looking like ruth buzzi, but supposedly, sjp is very offended by that. i heard an interview with her on a local shock jock show on ny radio a few years back to that effect.

maybe it was more like:

Watched "Enchanted" under duress. Mrs. Six has a thing for Disney movies... It wasn't horrid. Had a few funny parts in it, and was cute over all...

buckytom: They used to do this kind of stuff at PBS for Masterpiece Theater, an eclectic mix e.g., "I Claudius" and the filmed versions serialized of literaure but all this season at least there's filmed literature but it's Jane Austin and that gets a little tiring after a while. Some of the productions--the really old ones--like "Pere Geriot "and Zola's "Nana" ere first rate. Too bad they're not available on DVD or VHS. I'd love to see John Adams but don't have HBO so I'll have to wait until it's out on DVD.
