Oh my heck, am I disappointed on several levels that more of you haven't seen this movie, or at least recognized it from the clues! It's awesome. In fact, it was number one on my Top 5 lazy/rainy/sick-day movies that Sue had quizzed us all about on the blog a while back. Also one of the ones listed as a favorite on my Facebook profile. Anyway, enough about me. If you haven't, you need to see this really enjoyable movie. Kevin Kline is so likeable in this, and it has some really great relationships, fun cameos by a ton of people, including real politicians (the clue about the donut was a line by Arnold Schwarzenegger, though before the time he was the Governator), and that's not to mention just the romp of a story it is in which a man who looks like the president steps in to play the role-and does it so much better than the original guy. Highly recommend, and it seems to me to have all the elements that Wright folk should love.
As far as the contest goes, I must tip my hat to Emily, for the girl plays hard! She ended up winning by sheer effort, piecing together clues for a movie she hasn't seen. After an early wrong guess, which actually was a good one given the two clues she based it off of, there were no guesses until the big giveaway one that names the character as well as adds a second clue to the idea that this had to do with the President of the United States. Congrats, Em! I do also feel redeemed a bit by Sue, who came in early this morning (seven hours after Em, though) with the right answer AND claimed that she'd been racking her brain and LOVED the movie Dave. Thanks, Sue, for that! Big relief that someone at least had seen and liked it like I do. No other guesses.
Anyway, ready for some Radiohead everyone? It's Em AGAIN....
