You know how every month there's one movie on HBO that airs a bajillion times and you end up watching it whenever it's on? The August/September champion in that category has been In Her Shoes, followed closely by The 40 Year Old Virgin.
Surprisingly, the former holds up just as well as the latter. Grading on a curve, of course. Virgin is the better movie, but I'll stand by the fact that In Her Shoes is an underrated one, featuring a typically wonderful Toni Collette performance, and a remarkably self-aware turn by Cameron Diaz. Not to mention Shirley MacLaine being as warm and endearing as I've ever seen her. Anyway, it's on again, and I'm watching it. Again.
Also: for those waiting for the Actress Tournament finale...coming soon! I had it almost ready to post before overwriting the damn file. Ugh. "Stupidity" wins the girlfight over Joe in this matchup. Anyway, it's on its way, I promise.
