Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Nurse Betty (2000)

Charlie: So, give me an example of a stupid person
doing a stupid thing. Not being stupid yourself,
you're equipped to know. Right?
Del: Are we gonna get down to business here or not?
Charlie: Just give me one example.
Del: One? OK, OK. Burger King opens up. These assholes
get excited and line up like they've never seen one before.
Like it's some kind of five-star restaurant.
Charlie: Five stars?
Del: Yeah.
Charlie: How about it, Wesley? That sound stupid to you?
Wesley: No, that's ignorant. They just don't know any better.

Neil Labute's Nurse Betty was released 20 years ago today. Anybody watched it recently? I remember digging it a lot at the time (I even have the DVD buried somewhere) but when I think about it now all I really remember (apologies to Renee Zellweger) are Aaron Eckhart's tighty-whities...

A podcast I listened to was discussing it so decided to watch it and I found it completely unremarkable. Not bad per say but not at all memorable.
