    Tim, remember when we were talking about Fanboys this weekend? Check this out.

    Fanboys delayed until 2009

    It's a shame the Weinsteins have screwed up this movie so badly.

    They might as well go straight to DVD.

    Anyway, they were trumped by Free Enterprise a decade ago.

    You have got to be kidding me.


    I hope LFL sues them. (The Weinstein brothers...)

    Well, it finally came out in a handful of theaters around the country. I've only seen a few folks around the boards here talking about it, but they all loved it. Now I wanna see it! :_|

    Maybe if a group of us go- I'd be up for that. That could be fun. Otherwise I'll just wait for DVD.

    Kev and I saw the movie poster for it the other day and he said, "Isn't that the same shot as the 40 Year Old Virgin movie poster?" I said, "Yep- looks like it, and they did one almost exactly as our first TIMMYCON! postcards." [face_whistling]

    I'm up to seeing it, but I'm not sure about Friday night. I have no guarantees right now as to when I get out of the office with my project imploding daily. The late Sunday matinee would work best for me, but I understand if that doesn't work for others.

    ETA: It looks like it's gonna be at Studio on the Square.

    We could do Sunday, also. But Mike prob has to work Saturday night, so we wouldn't be able to make it Saturday.

    Sunday will depend on whether or not we have someone to watch the kids. (The PG-13 rating puts it out of Rachel's range.)

    What about Friday night?

    We could make it an official SMT outing, and do it at a later showing if they have it. There's a 7:35 and a 9:45.

    On Sunday there's a 1:00, 3:10 and 5:15pm. Any of those work for us.

    Any of those times would work for us but, again, it'll depend on when my mom can keep the kids. We should know something Friday.

    Tonight is a go, so here's the plan:

    WHERE: Studio on the Square (the only place it's showing)

    TIME: We're going to the 9:45 showing but meet us in the parking lot at 7pm if you want to go to dinner before the show. We'll decide where to eat once we get downtown.


    Woot! Gotta drag a fangirl shirt out of the closet. :D
