Brokeback Mountain

Hours ago, I was sitting in the cinema, eagerly waiting for Brokeback Mountain to begin.

(It's best to clarify the above. No, it doesn't bring me any joy to see guys on guys. I wanted to see a good film, judging from the reviews- this was one. If you however insist on a more carnal motive, I must confess that seeing Anne Hathaway naked, even briefly, was a good reason as any. Yes, it's Miss Princess Diaries herself. I bet if you are straight and do not object to see naked women on "art films", you too will say a silent amen and maybe a word of thanks, followed by a petition for forgiveness.)

Anyhow, instead of Brokeback Mountain, they mistakenly screened "Fun with Dick and Jane" starring the very funny and periodically suicidal Jim Carey. You can imagine how strange this felt. I thought I was there to watch "Fun with Dick" or perhaps "Fun with Dick and Dick". But "Fun with Dick and Jane", with all the hype and the anticipation, really didn't sound that appealing at all.

Fortunately, they did resolve the problem and we saw many Dicks and Janes having fun.

A happy (for lack of a better word) ending for one and all.

(Watch out for the "Rojak" Total Defence video, playing in cinemas. It's probably the context of the viewing but Mr. You Tiao and Mr. Cucumber looked very queer indeed.)

How about "Fun with Jane and Jane"? That would be fresh.

You dunno who I am ... not

Yes, that would be pretty awesome, but i rather avoid rosie o donnell and ellen degeneres just the same.

You know who i am
