Movie Minutes

Skip Scoop. Unless of course you’re such a fan of Woody Allen that you want to see Scarlett Johansson act like Woody Allen. I love her, I really do (though I think I loved her more before she got quite so beautiful; check out Manny & Lo to see her as a tomboyish tween), but after an hour I got tired of her all ticks and jumpiness and had to flee.

March of the Penguins. Beautiful, informative, anthropomorphizing. Not a kid’s movie, but it doesn’t seem to have scarred Ben.

The Beach. Blue Lagoon meets Lord of the Flies. It’s very pretty and all (Leonardo di Caprio, the beach), but who really needs it?

Monster-in-Law. See, after three days stuck at home, sick, I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel. This is even worse than you would expect. Although I must admit that the last scene between Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda made me tear up a bit. But I still miss my mother-(never a monster)-in-law. Plus, I was feverish.

    Sorry to hear Scoop is no good. I didn’t even like the last one with Scarlett and Woody (blanking on the name), but I was hoping this one was better. Sigh.
