AI gave not seen this, and it doesn't come out on a commercial DVD for a couple
of weeks. These caps are taken from a screener DVD. Amazon describes the film as
Saving Face starts like you
might expect a Chinese-American lesbian romantic comedy to start: Young surgeon
Wilhelmina (Michelle Krusiec, in her first starring role) has kept her sexual
orientation secret from the conservative Chinese community of Flushing, NY--but
when her mother (Joan Chen, The Last Emperor) becomes pregnant and is
kicked out by her own parents, Wil suddenly has to juggle her mother's secrets
with her own...which include her sparky new romance with Vivian (Lynn Chen), a
ballet dancer and the daughter of Wil's boss.

- The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the
review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
- If there is a white asterisk, it means that
there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined
there might be something else of interest.
- A blue asterisk indicates the review is written
by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
- If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too
ashamed to admit it.

2005 NFL Cheerleading Tour - Day 18: Minnesota Vikings
With the 2005 NFL season already one quarter of the way
completed, the Minnesota Vikings have to be one of the league's
most baffling stories. The Vikes were considered by many to be
contenders for the NFL crown. Instead they have only racked up one
victory in the NFL worst division. The team is
swirling in troubles, with rumors of firing head coach Mike
Tice, and an ailing QB in Daunte Culpepper.
The Minnesota Viking Cheerleaders appear to be following in the
footsteps of their on field counterparts. The home page for the
cheerleaders is distracted by a picture of Vikings center Matt
Birk. Birk is looming over the right side of the screen looking as
if he will pounce on a cheerleader at any moment. Ironic thing is,
Birk is out for the season, and isn't even listed on the
Vikings roster. Bottom line is this...this site doesn't scream
"Cheerleaders Here!" (I even found out that the Vikes are getting
a new stadium on this page...why is this information here?) The
roster page has individual photos leading to bios, and one picture
of a swimsuit calendar. I couldn't find any more pictures of the
calendar, but that was alright by me. After going through the bios
(all with only one picture of each girl) I determined that only
Alli were worth looking at in swimsuits. There is evidence
that these girls make
appearances, but I have no idea where they are, what they are
doing, or which cheerleaders attended the event. You also have no
idea where they may be in the future, for they do not list any
upcoming appearances. The one saving grace for this site is the
Alumni section. Check out photos, uniforms, and cheerleaders from
days gone by. This site, the cheerleaders, and the team all seem
to be on the same course this year. Going nowhere fast.

Four featurettes about "Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story," aka "Seabiscuit
"Conan to Turn Entire Show Over to U2 "
- I'm not sure that's what the headline writer meant. I think he
meant "Conan to devote one entire show to U2," unless Bono is
planning to do all of Conan's schtick from now on!
- This headline writer did better than CNN, which wrote "Conan
giving show to U2," which made me picture Bono sitting quietly
while Conan does hand shadows.
- This brings me to a pet gripe. Why do some people write
internet headlines in condensed form with the artificial present
tense ("Dog bites man") instead of in normal English ("A dog bit a
Kingston man on High Street yesterday")? The standard headline
format was designed because newspapers have a limited amount of
space in both dimensions - but there is no need to apply that
convention to the internet (except for humor, as Andy Borowitz
does). Web pages don't run out of room! In this Conan/U2 case,
artificially dropping the article changed the meaning of the
headline. If he had just typed "Conan to Turn An Entire
Show Over to U2," it would have communicated his message, but he
dropped the article to conform to a newspaper convention, even
though he was not writing for a newspaper, but for a radically
different medium which requires different conventions.
- I would prefer "Conan WILL Turn AN Entire Show Over to U2."
Complete sentence. Correct verb tense. And while we're at it,
capital letters in the middle of a sentence are for dinosaurs and
Germans. Why not a nice, simple, "Conan will turn an entire show
over to U2"?
- Since headline format is, by its very nature, ungrammatical
and ambiguous ("New Zealand finds Black Cocks hard to swallow"), I
suggest dropping that convention faster than President Bush
dropped Advanced Calculus at Yale.
Pat's comments in yellow:
BUSH DEFENDS MIERS PICK
You Know, Like Pooty-Poot! - Tuesday, President Bush held a press conference to
defend his nomination of his personal legal counsel, Harriet Miers, for the
Supreme Court. Asking conservatives to trust him, Bush said he'd known Miers
long enough to know she won't change and start legislating from the bench. He
added, "I know her heart."
* In Bush's world, that qualifies him to be a cardiologist.
* Okay, now does anyone know if she has a brain?
* It would be nice if he stopped looking into nominees' hearts and looked into
their resumes instead.
* Don't worry, she won't legislate from the bench because she has no idea how.
* Bill Clinton never nominated one of his personal lawyers, and he had
BIG LOAD OF POOH: PIGLET BANISHED (CAREFUL! TOUCHY SUBJECT!)
A Bear Of Very Little Brain - Due to complaints by offended Muslims, workers in
the city council office of Dudley, England, were ordered to remove all pig-theme
toys, calendars and novelty items from their desks, including a tissue box
featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. Muslim Councillor Mahbubur Rahman
defended the policy, saying it is just "a tolerance of people's beliefs."
* Well, his beliefs...
* What if you believe this is really stupid?
NOBEL PRIZE FOR DRINKING BACTERIA
They Flip A Coin? - The 2005 Nobel Prize for medicine went to two researchers
who proved that stomach ulcers are caused by bacteria, not stress. One of them,
Australian Prof. Barry Marshall, turned himself into a human lab rat by drinking
a cocktail of the suspected bacteria. It caused nausea, vomiting and stomach
pain, which was cured by the treatment for ulcers. Marshall said everyone
thought they were crazy, so "somebody had to do it, somebody had to swallow
those bacteria and develop the disease."
* Of course, swallowing all that bacteria was VERY stressful...
* And yet, he had to share the prize...DAMMIT!!
* And deliberately drinking ulcer-causing bacteria proved he WASN'T crazy?
* If drinking cocktails until you vomit is all it takes, Paris Hilton should
win a Nobel Prize.
NEW ANTI-CELLULITE MACHINES SUCKS YOU THIN
This Thing Sucks! - The New York Post reports that Bergdorf Goodman is
selling a new, $1600 anti-fat machine called the Wellbox, which promises to
fight wrinkles and cellulite. It's like a vacuum cleaner with multiple
heads that you run over various parts of your body, and the maker claims
the suction gives underlying tissues a workout and spreads fat more evenly.
But Manhattan plastic surgeons expressed skepticism. One said his office
bought a similar machine, it didn't work very well and is now gathering
dust, and he suspects the home version will end up in the back of people's
closets with their Stairmasters.
* You know, if you got that Stairmaster back out of the closet, you might
not need a fat vacuum.
* It makes you look like a teenager again, because you have hickeys all
* Women find it to be useless, but men think it's the best sex partner
MEN TAUGHT TO IRON
One Day Won't Do It - One-day courses in how to iron clothes are being held
for men across Austria. An instructor says there are three types of men
who sign up: confirmed bachelors, men who want to impress their wives or
girlfriends, and men who've just split up. Their slogan is "A real man
knows how to iron." To give the men more incentive, they get to compete at
ironing a shirt before a timer goes off, and there's a wine-tasting after
* It would be more fun to have the wine BEFORE the ironing contest.
* Real men already know what an iron is for: making grilled cheese
* When I hear about Austrian men pumping iron, this isn't what springs to
* Australian men want to make it clear that this is going on in AUSTRIA.
MAN SOUGHT TO HAVE VASECTOMY ON TV
Key Word: "Relatively" - An Australian health care provider is looking for
a man who's willing to have a vasectomy on TV. A spokeswoman said they
want to show how simple and "relatively pain-free" a vasectomy is, and to
dispel common misconceptions. The show is inspired by a similar show last
week on British TV. Vasectomy recipient John Klapvijk said the worst thing
about starring in it was the ribbing he got from his friends.
* That, and the first hour after the anesthesia wore off.
* The ribbing would've been even worse if the director hadn't muted the
* Keep in mind, the person saying it's pain-free is a spokes-WOMAN.
* In America, any man who wants to get a televised vasectomy can just be
interviewed by Ann Coulter.
SPIDER FOOLS MATE INTO NOT EATING IT
A Win-Win, Except For The Insect - Many male spiders are killed by the
females after mating, but a researcher at Denmark's Aarhus University
discovered a British spider has developed a unique way to survive sex. The
male presents the much-bigger female with a gift of a dead insect, then
collapses at her feet, pretending to be dead. While she's preoccupied with
eating the insect, the male creeps up under her, copulates and flees before
he gets eaten.
* This is why a man who wants sex always buys a woman dinner first.
* So she eats during sex, like Kirstie Alley.
* This is similar to the mating habits of other British creatures, such as
Prince Charles and Camilla.
WOMAN SUES OVER BACK PAIN CURE (CAREFUL! NOTE SUBJECT!)
Good For What Ails Ya! - An unnamed Oregon woman is suing her former doctor
and his medical clinic for $4 million, claiming he convinced her he could
cure the pain in her back and "lower extremity" by having sex with her. He
claimed the sex was consensual, but he lost his medical license and spent
60 days in jail after pleading guilty to charging the state health care
plan $5,000 for his 45-minute "treatments."
* 45 minutes?! He must have quite a bedside manner!...Most doctors would
be in and out in ten minutes!
* It didn't help her back, but it sure helped HIS lower extremity.
* If she'd wanted to be screwed by a quack, she would've joined an HMO.
TARA REID'S BOOBS DIDN'T SHOOT GANDHI
Serious Boob - Tara Reid told Steppin' Out magazine that she's tired of
journalists treating her as nothing but a party girl, and she just needs
one more great role to prove she's a serious actress. As for that incident
where she stood on a red carpet, oblivious to her breast hanging out, she
told FHM that it was reported "like it was the worst crime in the world"
and "you would think my boob had popped out and shot Gandhi!" But it won't
happen again: Reid said she now uses "double double tape" so "my hooters
are under control."
* I guess it's true: duct tape can fix anything.
* Standing there with her boob hanging out didn't mean she's a party
girl...but the fact that she didn't notice it for 15 minutes, well...
* If her boob really could pop out and shoot Gandhi, I'd pay to see a
movie of THAT.
* She just needs one more role as deep and powerful as Melody in "Josie &
LINDSAY LOHAN IN ANOTHER CAR ACCIDENT
Was She "Fully Loaded?" - Tuesday afternoon in West Hollywood, just three
months after a paparazzi crashed his car into hers to get photos, Lindsay
Lohan crashed her Mercedes into a van. There appeared to be no serious
injuries, thanks to Lohan's air bags.
* They're not as big as they used to be, but they still do the job.
