I can see why you and I get along so well....
Speaking of Hughes....
After news of the HR death this week, I went out and bought a bunch HR movies on BD and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
Sat down to watch PT&A today.
I remembered when it was first released and how funny everyone thought it was.
Sadly, it doesn't hold up very well.
I watched the first hour and laughed once.
Part of the problem is Steve Martin.
He isn't a very good actor and his constant smirk is distracting as he!!.
It appears he was/is under the impression that simply showing up would illicit laughs (it doesn't).
In addition, the writing isn't there either.
As it turns out, I didn't pay much for it....so now harm, no foul (except I want my hour back).
