Storyline

Mary Horowitz writes crossword puzzles for the Sacramento Herald. She's loquacious to a fault. When kids at a career day make fun of her for being single, she accepts a blind date with Steve, the cameraman for a CNN-like news network. Within minutes she decides he's the man for her. He's quickly put off by her constant verbiage and over-the-top advances; he makes an off-hand remark about going on the road with her, and splits. She's moonstruck, writes a sappy crossword puzzle, loses her job, and decides to follow him as the news team crisscrosses the Southwest; Steve's team eggs her on. Then she falls in a mine shaft, and she and Steve become a story; is it a love story? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Mary Horowitz: I think you mean, am I conscious? Not, am I conscience?
[People Chuckling]
Mary Horowitz: 'Conscious' means alert and awake. 'Conscience' is your inner morality gauge... you know, the thing that stops you from doing bad things... e.g., killing, stealing, harming helpless animals and whatnot.
Vasquez: Can we leave her down there?
Mary Horowitz: To answer your question, yes, I am conscious. My leg is bleeding, though I'll probably live. Yours truly, Mary Horowitz. P.S. Did anyone lose a little deaf girl? I found one. She's fine, other ...

Awkward Comedy: "There is a method in the Madness"
10 September 2009 | by (California Highlands, United States) – See all my reviews

Written In True Mary Horowitz Style:

Did you ever wonder HOW a Real person with a completely separate "Public" identity feels - say Charles Lindbergh whose child was stolen or Martin Luther King, Jr. whose front porch was bombed? There are Crazy people in this world - UTTERLY out of their mind crazy, mean and destructive...

  • then there people like Mary: Kind, Gentle, Dorky and always trying to


figure things out - yet still trying to find real love - just like everyone else. I thought Ms. Bullock's film was very compassionate, considerate and caring - An Excellent Comedy with Heart!

The scene where the two friends show how many people Mary touched in a positive way, compared to how many the newscaster touched in a negative way was priceless and showed Mary's true nature and thus her true value. Something that Mary had to learn for herself and DOES.

Learning to value yourself is a hard lesson and some people like, Marilyn Monroe, never quite get it and give up (but are so vain they take pictures before they do) and other's like the self-abdicated King of England get it right the first time - when true love hits them between the eye - yet still late in life (age 42):

"But you must believe me when I tell you that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King (of England) as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love." - Edward the VIII

The sad fact is that many of us are late bloomers and in this world ... Thank you Ms. Bullock for always having a Heart of Gold. I'd rather live in the same category as Edward the 8th any day. Truly, "Thank You."

In addition, thank you Cast for making it funnier than heck - the "dead horse" getting up was PRICELESS so was the newscaster's spin doctoring
  • I almost split my side!!!!
