The other night the kids watched We Bought a Zoo, and I half-watched it with them. Cameron Crowe must be stopped. And then last night I was flipping around for something to watch for 20 minutes til I fell out and wound up watching all of To Live and Die in L.A.
I'd seen it a bunch, but it's just so entertaining, and entertainingly overdone. William Petersen is just such a dick, and he embodies it in a way that you just know goes straight to the bone. His character here reminds me of Paul Rudd's character in Wet Hot American Summer, except the latter is supposed to be ridiculous. And speaking of Michael Mann, the story that he sued William Friedkin for creative plagiarism is reportedly apocryphal, but he woulda had a good case.
