Funny, Aliens, Geneva (again)

I worked a 15 hour day on Saturday to cover a co-worker's cricket habit, and so got off at 9:00 AM on Sunday. We saw a movie, ate lunch, and saw another movie. On Monday I played at getting stuff done around the house, mostly wandering in circles. On Tuesday I went up to Lake Geneva and tried to do "The Tour" (a circuit of the lake, about 20 miles), and actually did about 5.25 miles in three hours (1.5 miles of that under oars). One of these days, there will be WIND...


"Funny People" is billed as a comedy, and isn't. Given that there it is about stand up comedians, there are a fair number of funny one liners, but for the most part this is just another iteration of stupid people being unhappy. I expected this to have more substance than Judd Apatow's previous films, and it does, but I also expected it to be at least a bit enjoyable, and it isn't.

"Aliens in the Attic" is mindless and silly. If you know that going in, and go in anyway, it is also fun. There are times when all I want from a movie is an anaesthetic effect, and this movie was just fine for that.
