There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

What should a movie like that have on the poster- the White House being destroyed by a spaceship?

I think Nicholas Sparks is out of ideas for books.  Young couple, whirlwind romance, someone dies, they mend their relationship and come back stronger, the end!

"Sparks recently went on record as saying he is a greater novelist than Cormac McCarthy. This is true in the same sense that I am a better novelist than William Shakespeare. Sparks also said his novels are like Greek Tragedies. This may actually be true. I can't check it out because, tragically, no really bad Greek tragedies have survived." -- Roger Ebert

If Nicholas Sparks ever did decide to do a sci-fi film where aliens blow up the White House he would have two of the aliens fall madly in love first, have one of them be diagnosed with a fatal illness and die causing the other to go mad and destroy the White House.

Expect a call from Roland Emmerich.
