Oh please.....

If you don't buy the premise, why review the movie? Yes, Katherine Heigl would probably never go to bed with Seth Rogen...but is that the point? In Slate, Dana Stevens notes that Judd Apatow writes men better than women. That's so self-evident a point that it's not really worth making - Woody Allen writes New Yorkers better than Southerners and George Lucas does aliens better than humans...

What did you think of the NR piece that inspired Dana Stevens follow up? I gave up a quarter of the way through it.

I just went to National Review and read a couple of pieces, one by Lopez and one by Podhoretz. Both are so full of judgments of lifestyles and personal behavior I'm surprised they could remember the plot. Under this logic, one shouldn't root for the characters in the "Left Behind" books because the characters didn't make the first cut at the rapture.....
