I suppose this is the story of the beauty and brutality of a long-term marriage as seen through the eyes of a writer who aspires to make art, but makes his living writing popcorn movies. Someone who wants to be a good man, but finds himself contemplating many crimes. Someone who is guilty of the crime of being human. Someone whose life is the only movie he can't rewrite. Well, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Not that I think it's truly fair to compare the two, but if you liked "Adaptation" as I loved it, you will obsess over the "Out Of Order." It's funny, witty, wise, wonderful, creative, charming, and highly addictive. Honestly, I was a little hesitant falling into such a world of chaos as its familliar, a satire of the known and even scarier, the unknown. But I liked it and want more. My only regret is that its not a longer show, but in its defense, despite how much fun you'll have watching it, time doesn't fly and the short hour seems like an enjoyable eternity. That is until you realize its over and have to wait until next week. And the cast is perfect, whoever casted the movie is a genius. Eric Stoltz is the man. The leading ladies are beautiful and talented to the point you forget they are A.M.W.'s--you'll have to watch to understand what that means--and William H. Macy is always a treat. Based on the life of a screenwriter Mark, and his troubles with his wife to his partner screenwriter, Lorna and, well, life. The cool thing is that Out of Order revolves somewhat around the actual screenwriters Wayne and Donna Powers who give inspiration for the starring characters. A must see, especially if your life is out of order.
