Hi Judi,

thanx for the Stepford Wives review; i know what you mean about Nicole Kidman; actually, i do think Kidman is a very good actor (she was great in the very depressing "The Hours", although, i frankly thought both Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore were and are far superior to her.)

However, when Kidman appears as herself on any tv promo appearances on Letterman or Leno etc., she leaves me cold; there is a studied distance she wears and imposes and although she illicits bursts of giggles or laughs as she covers her mouth in a feigned modesty, it all comes across both forced and false;

it's as if we never really get a sense of who she really is -- and that's definitely the way she likes it.

p.s. can't wait for your Fahrenheit 9/11 review! ~ i'm not sure Toronto will be getting it on the 25th like the rest of the U.S.; cross my fingers.

Have you seen the original or read the book? I probably won't see either, but I'm always curious to know how people feel about remakes.

Yes, I read the book. A a pretty scary cautionary tale at the time. I also saw the original movie.

I would love to hear what you think when you see this movie. I don't usually mind remakes. The story was changed in this one. At least, I don't remember the ending being the same. I think this remake was meant to be a comedy.

I'm pretty sure that the book and the movie came at the start of the 'Feminist Revolution'. I would look it up, but our DSL is down, and I am making this comment on my very slow old Mac with a modem connection.

Darn SBC. I just talked with someone in the Philipines (where it is Tomorrow) but nothing can be done till i talk to the local people in LA after 8:00 AM. #^%^&**
