    Viggo is an extreme sports dude named Roy Nord (yes, really!) who tries to out-macho Stallone. Amy Brenneman is an aspiring playwright who rescues a busload full of juvenile delinquents. Plus, what's a '90s flick w/out Dan Hedaya? I found DAYLIGHT on Starz. It's a lot, lol.

    I'll never forget reading Laura Esquivel's LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE @ 10 & realizing my aunt (who'd recommended it) had an um, side I didn't know about, lol. It was my first exposure to magical realism too & I wrote a major film school paper on Alfonso Arau's stunning '92 movie.

    To quote the great Emma Thompson, James Spader is basically "sex on a stick" in this movie.

    I've only seen only a handful of movies where as soon as we meet the characters, I've thought, "these are my people," but the characters in WONDER BOYS are 100% my people. (I like them more than some of my relatives.) This film not only gets writers; it gets me.
