I can not begin to express my joy that master manipulator Spielberg was trounced by a silly comedy.

Leave it to old SS to take a true story and turn it into a piece of romantic piffle. Gotta love that he changed the character from Iranian to an Eastern European. What's the matter Steven - afraid what the boys in DC would think, or was it the fear of making one dollar less? Would it be impossible for you to write a sympathetic Iranian?

Good idea going with totally non-threatening Tom Hanks.

The real pleasure will come after this weekend -- I'm praying White Chicks makes more than The Terminal. That should shoot his blood pressure up a few points!

Despite my feelings about Spielberg, I have a hard time wishing that White Chicks does anything but sink faster than a bowling ball in a kiddie pool.

I second Aaron's opinion of Dodgeball. I loved it, and nearly cried laughing a few times. Ben Stiller was the low point—though he did have the occasional good moment—but overall it was all about Vince Vaughn, Stephen Root and my boy, Gary Cole. You are guaranteed a good time if Gary Cole is in a movie, particularly one where Rip Torn is lobbing wrenches at unsuspecting victims.
