I miss those days sometimes, though maybe it's a good thing we aren't still driving around like that in our forties.

I give this movie an "okay," though I recommend skipping seeing the show in the theater.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
