    This movie is aspirational in that Amy shows how any goal can be achieved with meticulous planning.

    She has to be a Scorpio with Virgo rising.

    ★★★

    This has become one of my not-so-guilty pleasures that I wind up watching whenever it is on TV. It is low-commitment, decently funny, and shot better than it has any right to be. I've seen it like 4 or 5 times (!) at this point so it clearly has appealed to me in some way.

    ★★½

    The feminism is truly of the white woman 2nd wave variety but Diane is being Diane and she tongue-kisses peak Sam Shepard multiple times and that is worth an extra half-star. Maybe the only Meyers movie without a gorgeous kitchen?

    "You don't want to be in love, you want to be in love in a movie."

    Rosie's work in this means everything to me
