In a fit of laziness last night, Red Queen and I watched Monkeybone on cable. It's quite a film. Parts are really funny, but I'm not sure they make up for the loooong slow start, or the unfunny parts later. However, LOTS of great small parts and cameos (Dave Foley, Thomas Haden Church, Edgar Allen Poe IV, Stephen King) make it vaguely worthwhile. What *really* makes it worthwhile is Brendan Fraser serenading someone with a lovely version of "Brickhouse." And I can now say I have seen two movies that waste the acting talent of Rose McGowan.

Then we watched the second half of Moulin Rouge which was well worth it, as always.

Hey, VH1's 'Behind the Music' turns 5.
