Magnificent, aren't they? "God's tears".
Yeah. It's beautiful. So are the others, I... I guess I just have to make the right decision.

It was a lazy Sunday night and the only movies playing were Wicker Park and Super Babies Baby Geniuses 2. Well, I picked the film with a more attractive cast.
After about the first thirty minutes of Wicker Park I was laughing because it seemed like this was the most absurd movie I had ever seen. However, as the film progressed the laughter subsided and intrigue ensued. By the last thirty minutes of the film I was hooked. When it was over, I was surprised that a movie that had started out so poorly ended up being one of the better films I have seen in a while.
If one sees this film, I recommend he/she be patient. I found the overall experience, despite the bad beginning, to be quite good.
