Somebody somewhere last week mentioned the 1991 rom-com L.A. Story starring Steve Martin as the beleaguered weather-person Harris K. Telemacher and I realized, upon said mention, that it'd been ages since I'd seen the movie, which had been a favorite circa high school -- anyway over the three day weekend I gave the film a re-watch and lemme tell you what, L.A. Story holds up.

SUCH an underrated movie! pic.twitter.com/VXlvIcECJq
It's a shame the movie isn't available to stream anywhere, free-wise I mean -- t's about the same price to buy the whole DVD of the film as it is to rent it on Amazon. Even cheaper if you buy a used copy, which I recommend. This movie's a delight and I don't often say that about Straight People Romance. Steve Martin though, right? We love Steve Martin. I think I thought Steve directed this film but he only wrote it -- did you know this was directed by the same man who made Volcano? Volcano, The Bodyguard, and this. Oh and the Temple Grandin movie. You go Mick Jackson with your weird career.
