Ugly Betty (2006)
Wonderful and heartwarming!
Okay, so "wonderful" and "heartwarming" are typical clichés. I did not want to get addicted to another show because it always seems the shows I enjoy end up getting canceled (anyone remember that little gem "Arrested Development?").
Ugly Betty is a great show. I figured when I saw the teasers for it that all the funny scenes were in the commercial and there would be nothing left in the show, but I gave it a chance. I thoroughly enjoyed watching. Salma Hayeck was hilarious in her cameo. Vanessa Williams is E-V-I-L! She seemed to relish in her role! America is amazing as Betty. She plays the part with sensitivity and does not make Betty seem cartoonish, which would have been very easy given the "ugly girl" costume she's wearing.
I will definitely continue to watch Ugly Betty. I am looking forward to seeing what kinds of situations Betty gets into in the future!
I Heart Huckabees (2004)
Not worth the rental fee . . .
Over 90 minutes of my life I will never get back.
I am all for a unique, quirky comedy. This was neither. My husband and I rented the movie after checking the rating here on IMDb. Normally, the ratings are right on. Not this time.
We couldn't wait for the movie to end. I kept hoping it would get better. I mean look at the cast! Lily Tomlin and Dustin Hoffman! Ms. Tomlin is a wonderful physical comedienne, so I expected to at least laugh or chuckle at least a bit. I did not even feel the urge to smile during the whole movie.
My husband is usually able to appreciate a movie for the technical aspects (i.e., direction, sets, etc.) and he could not wait for the movie to end.
This movie is best left for the pseudo-intellectuals and wanna-be Nitzchies.
