the sound of music & ten inch hero

Yesterday, Mom & I saw the musical The Sound of Music with Janna (the alternate) as Maria.  I thought Janna did well, sounded beautiful.  I never warmed up to the Captain though and felt the jump to them declaring their love was abrupt -- there was no leadup to it.  Well, there was, technically, but I didn't see any chemistry between the two.  The children were all great and little Gretl was freaking adorable.  I absolutely love the movie, seen it countless times, so when the song order changed, it really took me out of the story.  Of course, I come home, look it up on wiki and realized that the musical came first and it was the movie that changed the order.  Anyway, had to pop in my DVD and watch it again  :)

Just finished watching Ten Inch Hero.  Pretty good.  Apologies to all the DeanGirls on my f-list but I was more psyched when I found out that Sean Patrick Flanery was in the movie.  And then to discover he was playing a dad?  Excuse me, I think my ovaries are aching just a bit.  I didn't see that little twist coming, that Julia wasn't Piper's child.  Tish was alright and I knew her & Priestley would end up together.  Although, I can't believe it took me a few seconds to realize that was him at the end, all cleanshaven. Loved Priestley's shirts, lol.  Jen's storyline was very sweet.  And hello Mr Parker (Trucker)!  Now, I need to imdb the girl who played Julia cause she looks so familiar.

If you're a Heroes watcher, she's Molly Walker - it took me awhile to put it together, too after I saw TIH.

Aren't those shirts the funniest? One of the best running gags I've seen in awhile.

I looked her up on IMDB and had a d'oh! moment. Molly! Is she still on Heroes? I've given up on that show.

She was on one of their wonky flash-forward episodes, but ne'er a peep since then.

Shame, really - I kinda liked her.
