ask me ask me ask me

The Bomb will bring us together.

We saw Sideways Friday night and loved it. Here is what it didn't have: gratuitous sex, misshapen men or women enhanced by surgery, clues on the back of the Declaration of Independence, guns, implausible coincidences or Ethan Hawke. What it did have was warm, believable characters, hilarious situations that never felt forced, and a nice way of surprising me at every turn. Finally, an adult movie! I almost wrote that there were no car crashes but...there was one, sort of. If you haven't seen this, please do. There's a reason why it won the Golden Globe for Best Film (Comedy or Musical, which is a strange grouping) and another for Best Screenplay (Comedy or Instructional...just kidding).
