01.12.09DVD Man! I guess it's been a really long time since I first saw this! I guess I've been waiting for a criterion release for so long that I never rented the bare-bones disc just to watch the movie again. It's good stuff... perhaps the highest funny-to-sad ratio in Wes Anderson's ouevre. it's hard to believe that it's 2009, ya know?. OLD.

From watching the making-of where Owen and Wes hint at how many jokes came from Jim Brooks, you have to wonder if it was his influence that made this as light-hearted as it is instead of mired down like Darjeeling. Probably not entirely (we have Rushmore as proof) but possibly. Some of the funniest lines ARE off-screen ADR.

Anyway, great movie. It's fun to watch again and finally own.
