wednesday december 30

today i attended a matinee showing of invictus. i was sitting beside an elderly couple, and the husband seemed to have a hard time understanding the south african accents employed in the film. after each piece of dialogue that drew chuckles from the audience, he asked his wife what was said, and she repeated the line for him. i can only assume that, in the case of any line that DIDN'T produce laughs, he either inexplicably heard them fine, or just didn't want to force his wife to repeat EVERYTHING, and figured that the funniest lines were the most crucial ones to hear.
