Tonight on GishTV

Maybe I'm cranky. Or something.

I just watched "Pursuit of Happiness", with Annabeth "Agent Reyes" Gish, Amy Jo "Pink Power Ranger" Johnson, Jean "Edith Bunker" Stapleton, and Liz "Captain Liberty" Vassey. Some guys in it, too, but not to speak of.

This might have been a good movie. Replace the writing, the lead male actor, probably most of the cast, in fact....

And one thing that bothered me was the representation of Seattle. One of the major conflicts in the film is that the main character is conflicted about leaving Los Angeles to move to Seattle. He spends an inordinate amount of time watching the weather channel, cleverly letting the reports of bad weather in Seattle telegraph to the viewer that he has misgivings about leaving L.A..

Yes, it rains here. Somehow, though, this movie managed to simplify existence in Seattle to working 16 hours a day at a software company and carrying an umbrella. I guess that's two dimensions, which is more than anything else in the film got.

For what it's worth, I'm missing an umbrella. I may need it before leaving home tomorrow to work at the software company for another 16 hours.
