    It just opened today, Martin. How'd you see it early? Are you a projectionist?

    It's not playing nationwide in many theatres. It's being rolled out gradually.

    The Hollywood Reporter has a"glowing" review.

    I am really looking forward to this not only because I've loved Diane Lane since she played Cherry Valance in The Outsiders but because of Raoul Bova who is quite the hunk.

    We went last night. It was packed out so we had to sit seperately which was a bumber. Having said that we both enjoyed the film. Far far better than expected and very funny at times. Worth a look.

    It seems to be doing really well critically and commercially. It's number 2 at the boxoffice according to E!

    This movie deserves to do well. Its a nice little movie and a nice change from all the big action movies and mindless comedies.

    Some people may just dismiss it as a loves story based on the marketing but it really isnt.
    It's much more about finding yourself and surrounding yourself with friends.
    I was actually quite surprised at how little the romance was part of the film.
    I read one review that said it was the White When Stella Got her Groove back which was interesting but not necessarily off base.
    Of course it helps that Diane Lane does a terrific job as does the supporting cast and then there's the scenery which is a perk.

    Another small drop this week! Now $29 million after 2 weeks / 3 weekends from 1220 / 1700 theaters! Not bad at all.

    Diane Lane has won the Best Actress Hollywood Award for her acclaimed performance in the hit film "Under The Tuscan Sun". It was a great performance in an excellent, funny and entertaining film and I'm thrilled for her!

    Well done Diane!

    I loved this movie too. Heck, I think I enjoyed it more than my wife! The drive home was filled with conversation about how we could arrange a move to Italy.

    Step 1, become a best-selling writer.
    Step 2, learn Italian.

    That's it. Any good story ideas I can steal?
