Dupree and a car for a song...

(edit note: I inadvertently forgot the word "DON'T" in my post regarding Zellweger. I fixed it!!)
We watched "You, Me, and Dupree" last night. If you did not go to the theater to see it, and you haven't seen it yet, don't waste 2 hours of your life watching this. The first recognizably funny moment comes around the 1:24 mark.. That is the ONE-HOUR, Twenty-four minute mark. It is one of the slowest-moving movies I have ever seen, with the only exception I can think of as being "Lost in Translation." The funniest part of the movie, to me, wasn't even part of the movie. On the DVD, there is a "spoof trailer" that makes the movie appear to be a horror/suspense flick, and it is hilarious! Yes, the movie had some funny moments, but really all that happened in the last half-hour.

I'm not a huge Owen Wilson fan. I liked his voice-acting in "Cars" and he played a subdued serial killer in a move called "The Minus Man" that I thought was kinda cool. I've seen several of his other movies, but I just don't... "get" him... Or, more to the point, why people like his acting... He is like the current version of Pauley Shore to me... Whatever... Of course, I have yet to understand the appeal of Renee' Zellweger, either. I have seen several of her movies, and I just don't like to watch her act. Now, these are just my own takes, so if you're offended or upset, get over it. :-) No, seriously, if ya leave a comment, knock yourself out... :-)

While watching TV this morning, I saw a Mazda commercial for a dealer in Louisiana. At the bottom of one scene, in small text, it read, "$0 due at singing.." The first time I saw it, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Thanks to DVR, I confirmed the wording... So, as long as you sing for your car, you can have it for no money down! That leaves me out... Guess I'd have to come up a down payment... Bummer... :-)

I would LOVE to be able to tell you how the Prescott Curley Wolves did during the state tourney, but I can't. See, the local radio station hasn't updated their website to tell us. Stupid. So, I'll have to wait and see if it is in this week's newspaper. Yes, our paper comes out weekly. Betcha didn't know place still only had weeklies, did ya?
