937) The Marx Brothers in a Nutshell
. Decent documentary I guess. They spent a lot of time showing clips of their movies and routines and for anyone that's more than a passing fan it gets tedious. If I wanted to watch Cocoanuts or Horse Feathers, I would just watch them. The only real revelation was that most everyone that knew all of them in real life thought Zeppo was the funniest, though you can actually kind of see that in the movies. He was always the straight man in their routines, but you could also see a sort of smirk on his face and could tell he had a great sense of humor about it all and didn't need to act up like the others.
938) Mr. Magoo
. Might seem like a weird choice, but I once watched Surf Ninjas
because of Leslie Nielsen so I decided to give it a shot. Plus I wanted to watch a comedy right now because watching a bunch of dramatic or romantic movies would be a terrible idea. It kind of backfired with this one though because within the first five minutes Jennifer Garner was on screen and she makes me think of Alias which makes me think of Sarah and since after today we won't actually be speaking for a while in order to give us each time and space that really sucked.
939) The Curse of the Jade Scorpion
. I figured out why I shy away from Woody Allen movies: Woody Allen is always in them. He absolutely bugs the crap out of me and even though everything else in his movies are usually pretty good his character is always so annoying that it makes me dislike the whole thing. If Bill Murray or Steve Martin played his role in this, they would have worked out just fine and I would have LOVED it. There are plenty of other comedic actors that could have pulled it off too, but just off the top of my head those two guys would have been great and made me like this more. Otherwise all I can say is that's its good but he just bugged me.

- I haven't been paying a lot of attention to football news lately, so this one
sort of slipped by me. Anyway, I'm not comforted. Had Watson stayed on as AD and stepped down as Head Coach I would have been fine with that. He's done a good job bringing the program into 1A competition, but it's his abilities as a game day coach that are sorely lacking. He was solely the HC for several years before also donning the AD cap and wasn't any more sucessful than he is now, so I'm not sure why he thinks he can focus on football and do any better.
