Saw "Four Christmases"

Despite having devoted a chunk of Thanksgiving weekend to goofing off in hopes of avoiding this, CC is feeling pretty burned out these days, a bad thing in someone who has two law exams in the next eight days.

(But who's counting?)

Desperate to think about something other than my potential career as a hobo with a J.D., I went to the movies with Jana-who-creates last night and saw "Four Christmases."

It was solidly ok without being awesome. Not nearly as good as "Ghost Town," the last thing she and I saw together.

LinguistFriend's longtime crush Mary Steenburgen was in it and did a good job. Actually, the casting was quite impressive. Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon made a very believable couple with an interesting chemistry.

Maybe I just wasn't in the mood.

This very funny, very sharp little comedy is fast becoming the underrated cult film of the year

My goodness, CC is exposing my crushes. That may not be worse than exposing the fact that some people, such as J.B.Fourier and Handel and Erasmus (my image, in a rendering by Holbein), had no crushes.
