This past weekend I watched Lars and the Real Girl. I think this may be the most bizarre movie I have ever seen. It was, however, hysterical on the surface. The underlying story was thought provoking. Basically, it’s a story about a guy who doesn’t really know how to be social in this world, so he develops his own way of working himself into society. If you get a chance to see it, I recommend renting the DVD so you can see the special features…just as funny as the movie. I’ve enjoyed Ryan Gosling’s work since Remember the Titans (with the exception of the way too drippy The Notebook), and his acting in this film just fully impressed me. I’ve got a few others of his to see: The United States of Leland and Half Nelson, but he is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors.
In other news, Eli Manning got married this weekend. Sorry ladies, but he’s off the market. He has now joined his father and brothers’ lead as all of them married their respective college sweethearts. And you thought he joined the family business by becoming a quarterback. 🙂 Congratulations to Eli and Abby.
