Everyone's a Critic

Me: I rented a movie for tonight.

Chris: Oh yeah? Which one?

Me: Once.

Chris: Once? I've never heard of it.

Me: It's supposed to be really good, it was on a lot of Top 10 lists for the year.

Chris: But what's it about?

Me: It's kind of a musical.

Chris: A musical?

Me: Yeah. And it's Irish.

Chris: Uh-huh.

Me: Or maybe Scottish.

Chris: Like that will make a difference.

Me: Oh, who knows, you make like it. Anyway, maybe the weather will clear up and we can go see a real movie tonight...I'd like to see Atonement. Or Juno.

Chris: How about Cloverfield?

Me: Ugh, no. I heard a review on NPR last night, they said it was awful.

Chris: Well, NPR can be kind of snooty in their movie reviews.

Me: NPR liked Once.

Chris: I rest my case.
