The Universe conspires . . .

. . . to prove me stupid once again.  At 4:55 yesterday there were no lines out the door to purchase tickets for Pyrates O' de Crab Bein'.  There were no surging masses of greasy odoriferous flesh threatening to breach the velvet ropes and trample the Theater Nazis.  The third showing of Waitress was, however, all but sold out.  I counted three empty seats in the front row and two in the last row.  Go figure.  Maybe I should just shut up.  If there's a message here, that seems to be it.

Waitress is a cute movie.  Like most of what Adrienne Shelly wrote, directed, or played in over the years, it might not be Great Cinema, but it's fun cinema.  It's entertaining.  I like kitschy, indy stuff and it's still got that flavor.  I will miss her (what a weird damn deal).
