Pushing Daisies - Make This Stuff Up

Two good movies today!

It didn't snow, so I did get the chance to hit the road and check out the movies that I wanted to see...

...First, I hit "Calendar Girls" with Helen Mirren and Julie Walters. Based on a true story. This one was wonderful. I did get a little weepy at a few moments throughout (a character dies of cancer early on, inspiring the action of the women for the rest of the movie). I do recommend it and think that any fans of "Waking Ned Devine", "Full Monty" or "Saving Grace" (that last one by the same director as this) should like it...
in between the films, I went to Echelon Mall (scary how empty is in there! Half of the stores are GONE!), ate at Fuddrucker's, and killed some time with the book I brought (a Star Trek novel).
I then went to "Something's Gotta Give". I've never really been a fan of Nicholson, but he's wonderful here. I've always been a fan of Ms. Keaton's though, and she also does not disappoint. Amanda Peet is fine as her daughter and I would have wanted more of Frances McDormand whose role was much too small. Keanu Reeves is pretty to look at, but doesn't do much acting. I was also pleasantly surprised to recognize one of the other people in the movie: Rachel Ticotin (who plays a doctor who takes care of Jack's character in NYC) who played Melina in "Total Recall" (haven't seen here nearly enough and it's a shame).
After the movies, I drove to Barnes and Noble at Deptford mall to kill some time and read an article in "Instinct" with Wes from "Boy Meets Boy" and I have even more of a crush on him after looking at the pictures in the mag.

From there, I planned to go to karaoke at "Bounce", but when I got there, they were closed down and there was some kind of legal notice tacked to the door (I gather they didn't pay their rent or something). Bummed out, I drove home.
