It's all fun and games until somebody shoots guava juice from her nose.

"...Paul Giamatti stars as a depressed superintendent who stumbles upon a magical sea nymph (Bryce Dallas Howard) who seems to be the product of a drunken three-way between Ron Howard, Darryl Hannah in Splash, and E.T.."

Liz wanted me to see Lady in the Water with her, and I was pretty sure I didn't want to but still thought I should check out some reviews, and then I came across that unfortunate bit in the Onion's AV Club. I was drinking guava juice, but I didn't really shoot it from my nose. Sorry if that part grossed you out.

Sadly, the reviews almost made me more likely to want to see it. It sounds sort of dumb, but pleasant, not ugly and insulting the way so many movies do. Yikes. My movie-drought has been longer than I realized (aside from An Inconvenient Truth, the last time I saw a movie I could sit all the way through was back in April) if that's all it takes to make something sound good to me.
