    I don't think the kids in "Y tu mama..." are yuppies. They aren't "young urban professionals."
    They are the children of rich parents. They are still high school students or whatever though.
    So no one on that movie's a yuppy really. Just rich.

    Anyhow. I didn't think it was bad. It seemed more of a story about a summer roadtrip gone somewhat awry, to me, than some "artsy porn" thing.
    *shrug*

    Also, if anyone rents Leon/The Professional. TRY and find the REAL version that is not the US release. Our version here was totally cut up to take out scenes and things that our censor deemed "disturbing.", so you aren't seeing the whole real movie if you rent the US version named "The Professional." Get the one called Leon instead.

    it's interesting that two people mentioned babette's feast.

    When my grandmother passed away, someone was invited to her funeral/the reception (?) whatever that party is that people console each other at is, and she said the amounts of food and kinds of foods there reminded her of a movie called babette's feast, she was so moved that she sent us a video tape. I don't think my parents ever watched it but I found it one day and watched it. it was quite interesting, but I don't think I enjoyed it as much then as I could have if I had watched it as an adult.

    If you liked Amelie, rent he loves me he loves me not, same actress, very different movie :)

    I called them Yuppies because that's what they call each other in the movie.
    Seeing how the movie ended I would say that if anything the message was against friendship and fidelity.

    okay, someone explain how Lost in Translation was so frekaing awesome? I hate Bill Murray, but I actually liked him in this. I hate Scarlett Johanson. I rented this thinking that it would be great since it came so highly reccomended, but I thought that it was really slow and pointless.

    It seem like one of those rare movies that people loved when viewed in the theatre but people watching it at home really don't like it. The movie seems to have literally been "lost in translation". Too bad I didn't see it in the theatre. One of the reviews: "a whisper of a film and the closest thing to a miracle that you will see all year".

    I had rented Lost in Translation from the library and loved it. But I work with a few people who really didn't like it - they told me it was "weird" and "there were too many scenes where nobody spoke" So for me maybe part of it was after hearing them I had low expectations of the movie.

    What I liked about it was the symbolism in it - like, the parallels between Charlotte and Bob - the fact that they are both observers in life (thus the "scenes with nobody talking"), whereas they are surrounded by more superficial, yappy folks like Charlotte's husband and Bob's wife and the blond Jessica Simpson-like girl. And I felt like the quick scene where she stumbles into the room where the older women are arranging flowers and they all seem to know exactly what to do and she's not really sure what to do - to me it seemed to symbolize her struggle in the "traditional" role of being a married woman.

    I also just thought it was really funny in a very dry way. And I liked that you really didn't know where things were going to go from moment to moment.

    oh, see i loooove bill murray and had no real opinion of scarlett johansen so i was really excited to see bill murray in this. i can't really explain whiy i liked it other than it seemed like such a departure from so many other movies out these days. i loved the dry humor and the fact that some of the scenes didn't have to be filled by pointless chatter.
