Pooja, I was impressed by your logical defense of the chiche, N'synch like dialog. You lost me, and I'm sure others when you said that Nobody, even invoking the name of Jesus, could write it better. To that I poodu. None the less your argument was compelling, cause I have looked over old love letters and thought "what the hell was I thinking." As for why the audience was sniffling, that is no defense of the writing, it is only enhancing the view that people in general can be lead around by pop culture like nerfs to the slaughter. That their emotions could be so stired by less than steller romantic diatribe is less than exciting to people like myself who admire strong drama and powerful dialog. I know I could have wrote it better and more believable, so I know many, many others could have. The simple reason being that I would take it around to my friends and when they began laughing at my script, as has happened in the past, then I would seek to revise it. George has no friends, and certainly seeks no advice, and in my humble opinion, this is why his movies are beginning to falter.
