I loved all scenes with the gay-straight guy. Or straight-gay guy. Whatever. He was the best girlfriend any of them couldâ€™ve wished for. For therein lies my real problem with this movie: I didnâ€™t believe these chicitas were friends in the first place.
I donâ€™t know who was most surprised â€“ the judges, Kitty, or the Bald One himself. Total devastation. Now that is good tv. With nary a dry eye, we said bye bye to Mr Daughtry, the rock â€˜n roller who was waaaay too alterna rock for AI in the first place. And yet, we liked him, we really liked him.
Elliottâ€™s the never-a-dry-eye guy. He’s the one who overcame it all â€“ illness, deafness, those teeth â€“ to get to the final three. He’s the modest counter-boy who adores his mother. And, of course, heâ€™s the biggest weeper on primetime TV. Who wouldnâ€™t cry for him?
I think American Idol is the new Miss America â€“ itâ€™s just all the talent competition. Or maybe itâ€™s Oscar Night. But less boring.

Robert Downey Jr. was fabulous. Because he always is. Because he’s Robert Downey Jr. And he’s kind of perfect. Ladies of a certain age (OK, […]
It’s taken me several days to get a handle on TIFF this year. Between back to school hectic-ness and life in general, I’m afraid TIFF has had to take a back seat for MOAM! But fear not, loyal readers, I still have updates for you!
It’s been a while, I know, I know. It feels like I’ve been scrambling, trying to catch up. On my work. On my life. On my TV… And now that we’re well into the fall season I can safely ask: what are you watching? Chez nous, I have to admit it’s taken this long for […]
In with a bang, and out with a whimper…That’s how I’d describe my TIFF experience this year.
Wednesday night brought with it a screening of “Starbuck”, a French Canadian film about a sperm donor who learns he’s fathered over 500 children. Watching the preview, I thought it could go either way. It looked pretty funny, but you never know how the humour translates, right? The seats in Roy Thompson are OK. At […]
