Long trudge back to the car to drop off the big bag along with everyone's cell phones since they weren't letting them in for the next movie since it was a sneak peak or whatever and all those crappy cameraphone pictures are ruining the industry. Eventually though, we got into the Paramount and I could let my dogs rest a while.

This was the closing night film and Dennis Quaid was in the house along with the director. Weitz did a little stand-up routine in the beginning and he along with Quaid and another actor in the movie did maybe 5 minutes of Q&A afterward.

The movie? um... it was ok. It went a few places that I didn't think it would go which is always nice for a Hollywood picture, but for the most part it was pretty expected humor. maybe it's because I'm not a huge American Idol fan... or maybe it's because I don't like Mandy Moore... The funniest part was Willem Dafoe playing essentially Cheney and Quaid doing his dubya. Even that though... I wonder if it will still be funny 20 years from now (I guess that's up to Bush).

So it wasn't bad... I laughed a few times... but I don't think i'd pick it up on DVD or anything.
