Did You Know?
Tom Bosley's final performance.
The economics information on the chalkboard when Stan is taking the exam (71 minutes) is incorrect — he was right to look perplexed and then walk out of that class. On the left side of the screen, the graph with a horizontal line is labeled as "perfectly inelastic," with "E=0". Nope, a horizontal demand curve is "perfectly elastic" and has an elasticity coefficient of infinity. A perfectly inelastic demand curve is vertical and has an elasticity coefficient of zero.

Oh, excuse me this is my cab
What you own it?
No, but I'm about to rent it
Awful in so many ways
The plot is fresh and original, at least I've never seen anything like
it before. This film actually has two options. #1 To be a serious drama
about a "middle aged" woman and the choices she makes. #2 To be
hilarious and make the audience laugh all the way home. Somehow this
movie is attempting both which unfortunately results in a chick flick
so weak that not even the girliest of girls (that would be me), would
bother watching.. again. It has a few good scenes here and there, but
not enough to make it worth watching a second time. Being quite the
J.Lo fan, this movie really was a major disappointment, as I had looked
forward to her comeback. I def smell a Razzie…!
