Totally Ferret

An exercise in IMDB Links

gnfnrf and I tried in vain (again) to see Fahrenheit 9/11 at the Har-mar 1-3 last night. We also immediately axed thoughts of going to see Troy at the Har-mar 4-11, on the grounds that if we kept up our current plans to see F911 (and then saw something else), we would eventually have to watch Mean Girls.

When we went to see it on Friday, the line was stretched around the theater. So we gave up on F911 and saw Dodgeball, which was considerably more entertaining than either of us thought it would be. Cameos were well-done (Lance Armstrong gives the best sports celebrity cameo in Hollywood history), jokes and gags were fast-paced and unrelenting, and the story is substantially more involved than we thought (like a strange cross between Baseketball and Old School). And the part that never gets mentioned in any of the previews is that Alan Tudyk (of Firefly fame)  plays Steve the Pirate, a gym regular who thinks he's a pirate. Is he a pirate? Or just a wannabe? You'll have to see the movie to decide for yourself . . .
