Lent: Part 8

The Weather Man (2005) – I hate Nicholas Cage, and I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because he’s secretly a Coppola. But he’s the only Coppola I hate, and I don’t really hate anyone else for having a pseudonym, so that can’t be it. Maybe it’s because he named his son after Superman, but I hated him long before that. Who knows. But every time I see one of his movies, I hate him a little less, and with time, the irrational hatred regrows. This movie was pretty good, but I bet I’ll forget everything about it just in time to reluctantly watch my next Nicholas Cage movie.

And for those keeping score at home, despite a valiant effort, Michael Cane was unable to unseat Hugh Laurie as Best British Guy Doing an American Accent.

EDIT: No, wait. I hate Talia Shire. They really ought to be required to keep the Coppola name. Makes it easier for me to hate them. And Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Kennedy by marriage.
