Pat: Let me think how to put this. Motherhood doesn’t turn out to be a reason.
Eve: For what?
Pat: What I mean is, I’m not one of those women who needed to be a mother. When I was growing up, all the girls wanted to be, so I thought I did too. But it didn’t take. Just being honest.
Eve: Well. . .Thank you.

Movie Quote of the Day – Because I Said So, 2007 (dir. Michael Lehmann)

Daphne: And who am I supposed to choose anyway, huh? Who do you think is better?
Johnny: Me.
Daphne: What?
Johnny: I like you. And I have an odd instinct that I’d like her too. Maybe I should meet her.
Daphne: Let me be perfectly honest with you, okay? You’re a very charming guy, irresistible, in fact. And that’s why I know you would be a horrendous choice because I’m not looking for a great affair for my daughter. You know, like, a gorgeous musician who’s gonna break her heart. I’m looking for a life partner.
Johnny: That’s great. Thanks. Yeah, no, I love being reduced to a cultural cliché. That’s just terrific. Because only musicians break people’s hearts. Wow.

Luna Schlosser: It’s hard to believe that you haven’t had sex for 200 years.
Miles Monroe: 204, if you count my marriage.

Carol Lipton: I don’t understand why you’re not more fascinated with this! I mean, we could be living next door to a murderer, Larry.
Larry Lipton: New York is a melting pot! I’m used to it!

Harry: I don’t think I’ve ever had this effect on a woman before.
Erica Barry: What effect do you think you’re having on me?
Harry: I don’t quite recognize it. That’s how I know I never had it before.

My Love For Woody Allen: Week 1


I recently finished watching every single film Woody Allen has ever directed, as well as most of the ones he either wrote or just starred in, but didn’t direct. His latest film, Midnight In Paris, is set to open at the end of the month. Thus I have decided to write a little bit about all of his films up until its premiere. I’m not going to go very in-depth, mostly because of the sheer volume of his body of work. Also, I’m going to start with Take The Money and Run because that’s the first film he wrote and directed (but you should still give What’s New Pussycat? and What’s Up Tiger Lily a watch). Other films I won’t write about but suggest you watch include Play It Again, Sam (based on a play Allen wrote and starring Allen and Diane Keaton) and The Front (a really great look at the Hollywood blacklist). So for this first week I’m going to go through Stardust Memories and then pick up at A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy next week, etc. etc. Also, while you’re at it check out this handy dandy aStore I set up featuring all of Allen’s work.

Posters For “Morning Glory”


I love the trailer for this film and I really hope it lives up to how great the cast list is. If it is as good as its pedigree it could be a serious contender for a Golden Globe nod for Best Comedy, as well as some acting nods. If it’s as smart as the trailer makes it look, is a hit with critics and does well at the box office, it may even have an long-shot chance for one of the ten Best Picture slots at the Oscars.

Morning Glory hits theaters on November 12th.

Movie Quote of the Day – Baby Boom, 1987 (dir. Charles Shyer)


J.C. Wiatt: Do you remember that night in the library when you asked me if all men made me nervous or if it was just you?
Dr. Jeff Cooper: Yeah.
J.C. Wiatt: I think all men make me nervous. . .except you.
