I finally got around to watching Splendor in the Grass yesterday
which MommyCakes let me borrow about a year and a half ago. In truth, I only put in on last night because I was in a Netflix drought. Before I resorted to putting in this DVD, which doesn't even have any special features for God's sake, I even went across the hall to knock on my neighbor's door to see if he had any DVDs I could borrow, but alas, he wasn't home.

It turns out, this is a great movie to watch if you enjoy watching Waren Beatty look angsty and Natalie Woods freak out in a bath tub. I also really enjoyed the moral of the story: you want to know what happens when you tell teenagers to repress their sexual urges? They go mad and throw themselves into waterfalls!! Beautiful. That was the moral, right?

I loved angsty Splendor. Did you know it's British title is Splendour in the Grass?

p.s. I think the moral is that Natalie Wood is an uber-babe. Don't tell nicole.

Nicole kinda looks like Natalie. How bout the fact that Bud ends up with poor Guidette Angelina from the pizza parlor, who then proceeds to pop out babies? And then Angelina has to encounter beautiful Natalie and know that this is the woman her husband is still fantasizing about!

PS You know there's a porn spoof called Splendor in Your Ass. There just has to be.

A quick google of "splendor in the ass' reveals no such porn titles. However, a band called Pachinko from San Francisco aparently has released at least tewo albums of said name. Just thought you'd like to know. And yes Nancy, I read your blog.
