MOVIE: Waiting for Guffman
Sophia and I watched two movies this weekend - Rudy and Waiting for Guffman. The first was predictable and not so much a sports movie as a motiviational film, not too strange given that the real-life Rudy is now a motiviational speaker. Back during the time of the film, he was a young man hoping to make the Notre Dame football team even though he isn't smart enough for Notre Dame nor athletic enough for any football team. But happy/feel good movies aren't so bad.
The second film was about community theater. I haven't done anything on stage since the 5th grade. But I could still relate to the cast of characters. Nothing was really laugh out loud funny but the underlying humor made me laugh out loud. I enjoyed it.
