Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Claire Wellington: I asked myself, "Where would people
never notice a town full of robots?" Connecticut.

The masterpiece Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind might be turning 15 today but this... movie... is turning 15 in a few weeks -- will we celebrate that? Well, will we? The answer is no. No we will not. Although I have to be honest, part of me is curious to re-watch it -- it can't be as bad as I recall it being, can it? It was written by Addams Family Values genius Paul Rudnick and reading through the quotes on IMDb just now there are actually some zingers. Perhaps we were too offended by the very idea of remaking The Stepford Wives at the time? Have any of you re-watched this thing lately? Anyway a happy birthday to Glenn Close today, who'd probably have appreciated me wishing her a happy birthday with anything but this.

I rewatched it a couple years ago and... it's fine. The big plot hole at the end is still dumb, but other than that, it's a pretty fun ride.

I'm from Connecticut, so I have a fondness for this movie for this line ALONE.

It's funny because IT'S TRUE.
