A dead dog, Monroe's coat and a 2300-page manuscript

"WONDER BOYS (2000) - Michael Douglas, Tobey Maguire, Frances McDormand, Robert Downey Jr., Katie Holmes, Rip Torn, Richard Thomas, Richard Knox, Philip Bosco

(Watched this on 1/29/10 in recognition of J.D. Salinger's passing.)

Douglas is a prize-winning author turned professor and Maguire his best student, but a total weirdo. Holmes is another student who boards at Douglas's home and is sweet on him. Downey is the professor's long-suffering publisher who wants to get in Maguire's pants. School dean McDormand is cheating on husband Thomas with Douglas, who is a member of Thomas's English dept. Best here is Knox, as a quirky, energized James Brown lookalike.

It's an intelligent, wistful yet often funny story of folks who face life-changing decisions that I've done no justice to by simply describing motivations.

See this one, you won't be sorry!"
