Heaven and Movies

[ #10352 ]
This weekend saw two cultural breakthroughs for me. I saw "Bridget Jones's Diary", and loved it. If there's an award for most use of the word "fuck" in a romantic comedy, that movie must surely win. Even over "Four Weddings and a Funeral".

The second breakthrough was musical. I've got most of a bluegrass solo to Bryan Adams's "Heaven" worked up. If there's an award for most ridiculous waste of musical time and effort, I feel I am among the finalists.

  • Please tell me there's going to be room for singers at the YAPC and TPC jam bofs. Or am I going to have to learn some tunes on the flute?
  • Personally, I thought the book was a lot better than the film, even if it is a blatant rip off (though maybe 'homage' would be a more appropriate term) of Pride & Prejudice
    • I got about 1/3 through the book but had to stop reading it because I found myself needing to go puke too many times.

      This is one case where I think the movie was better than the book, especially considering the material it had to start with.

      • I never read the book for the same reason I never watched the movie--it sounded like it'd be weak crap that I could only appreciate if I were a single woman with the same mindset as BrJo. The movie definitely wasn't like that--the story is about her getting strength, not about her whining and drinking about how single she is.
