Yes, I've seen the big Nora Ephron article in Salon

So you can stop emailing me. Thank you to the Chalicesseurs who recalled that Nora Ephron is the hated enemy of the Chaliceblog and let me know. (Item: Google "Nora Ephron sucks." Guess who comes in first?)

For those of you who have something better to do than read this article, I'll summarize.

Nora Ephron has made a bunch of crappy movies. But she doesn't think they suck.

Nora Ephron writes relentlessly and unapologetically about her ex-husbands, which, I'm sorry, is tacky as hell.

She doesn't read negative reviews of her movies because she doesn't want her feelings to be hurt. (Unlike the feelings of her ex-husbands, Nora Ephron's feelings matter.)

And she as a crappy column on the Huffington Post. I snark about one of her columns here.

And then the writer of the article pointed out the "realism" in movies like "Sleepless in Seattle" and "Bewitched."

That's when I stopped reading.

Pps. Other people on the Chaliceblog enemies list include:

Anne Lamott
Anne Rice

and an honorable mention to David Sedaris

and that honorable mention of David Sedaris tells me you simply have no taste for bad taste.

Perhaps you just missed out on seeing the appropriate John Waters movies at the appropriate times...

glad to see the list ends up co-ed. I was beginning to think you didn't like women....:-)

When women suck, it bothers me more. One might wonder if I had higher standards for them.
