dont ask me why but i was just looking at the e.t. wikipedia page and i happen to notice a quote from a "perd hapley" among the critical response to the movie right after one from george will who panned it for "spreading subversive notions about childhood and science." guess the bowtie was wound a bit too tight that day.

anyway, what struck me about the name perd hapley was that it was the same as a fictional newscaster on parks and recreation, and with a few more taps of the keyboard it turns out that the quote was indeed a line of dialogue from the show and not as i momentarily considered that the character was named after a real person.

what was his insight into the movie, you ask?

"It's a heartwarming story, but it's just not believable."

he gave it 1 1/2 stars.

It has been a while since I saw the trailer, but I'm going to have to say that August: Osage County was not nearly as funny as they made on.

NYC friends, BUOY will be playing at the Queens World Film Festival on March 6th, 3pm. Click the green button on this page to purchase tickets.
I will be doing a Q/A after the movie and hope to see you and hang out.

More tacky laurels for the poster -  just got word that Tina Holmes has been nominated for the festival's Best Female Actor award for her role in the movie.
