Now that the convention is over, I have nothing to watch. :)

There seems to be nothing in theaters that appeals to me right now although Wicker Park sounds interesting. Hadn't heard anything about it, thanks for the summary. And thank goodness for video stores! Most of the weekend will be spent on yard work and cleaning the garage. :(

It will be nice to relax with a rental in the evening.

Have a good weekend.

Yes, Wicker Park does look interesting. Vanity Fair doesn't look too bad, either.

But I agree, there are more movies out in video that I'd like to see than are in the theaters now!

Have a good weekend, yourself. It'll be a quiet one for me, my dd and her dh will be here and we'll probably grill out, and play cards later, but not much else.
