Sarah and I just saw Fahrenheit 9/11. I went in expecting to laugh for 2 hours at Michael Moore making fun of the thousands of dumb quotes Bush had said, or pointing out the many contradictions in things he and his staff say. (Sadly, one of my personal favs, Donald Rumsfeld being interviewed and read, verbatim, what he said on an earlier, televised, interview and then denying he ever said it was too recent to make the movie) Instead I actually cried through most of the movie. While the first half focus's alot on Bush the second half focus's on the war and not Bush per se.
I really think you should all see it (especially the people who know they wont agree with any of it...Matt)
I'd like to know what Carl thinks of the 2nd half, I'll even take him on a date to the movie, my treat, assuming he'd then throw in his 2 cents on here...and for that matter even if he doesn't.

|ps The tagline in the commercials about the movie getting a standing ovation at the end can't be that untrue because people did clap at the end of it.|
Ill take you up on that date offer
|Micah - I'm flippin' burgers / you at Kinko's straight flippin' copies|
|There was a standing ovation when I saw it. But I still hate when people clap at the end of movies. About as much as I hated the guy behind me going, "Goddamn right" every 5 minutes. Also, my friend Andy, who is probably the most right-wing person I know, thought it was excellent.|

|I also was bothered by the clapping, it's not a play. Michael's not there, there's no reason to clap. I'm not surprised that a right winger liked it. The very end was moving and the whole thing was well done.|

|I clapped at the end of Miracle......and I still cheer when Rocky beats Apollo|

|At the end of Dude, Where's My Car? when they finally get the continuum transfunctioner, I can't help but applaud.|

O'neal family quote of the day (sort of, not a direct quote", "Shaunie O'Neal was quoted while giving a tour of the family's 18-bedroom Los Angeles mansion which she says the family has outgrown and which is now on the market for $7.5 million."
I don't think I've ever actually physically clapped for a movie. That's just silly.
|Sarah - So's your face|
I have metaphysically clapped for a movie. :)
I saw that quote on ESPN and was a bit perturbed. How do you outgrow an 18 BEDROOM mansion? I'm pretty sure they don't have 17 kids. And I'm sure there are other rooms in the house.
What it must be like to be rich.....

|It's not so easy being rich.....the Democrats are always trying to take your money, and people start calling you bastards for no reason.|
|Jeremy - 1.21 Gigawatts!?!?|
|Of course republicans essentially take poor people's money and give it to the already rich people ("The have and have-mores" are GWB's "base") so they can get bedrooms 19-25.|
|I saw Farenheight 9/11 and didn`t like it. Micheal Moore is a fat ugly annoying guy. I saw Dude where`s my car too and i thought it was funny even though my friends say it sucks.|
I haven't recieved my date yet. Im still waiting. Plus, I called you (jeremy) forever ago and you have yet to return my phone call. Im going to Page3 studios to demand satisfaction (Homer vs. The Colonel reference)

|The only call I got was from you when we were in Wausau and you wanted sarah and I to meet you at the bars, I wasn't aware I needed to return that :)|
