DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
LINDSAY Lohan: can she come back? I’m going with yes. She looked lovely on the cover of Vanity Fair last year. Beautiful navy dress, finger wave in the hair, charm bracelet . . . But she can act, is the thing. Go on — laugh. But why don’t you watch The Parent Trap tonight and then see how you feel.
She plays identical twins separated at birth, so she has to be similar yet not quite. Yes, terribly demanding. She totally nailed it.
She also gave a fine performance in Freaky Friday. Jamie Lee Curtis plays her mother whose body she somehow swaps with.
Something to do with a fortune cookie and a Chinese restaurant.
I can’t quite recall whether Lindsay ends up having to sleep with her own father during the transitive phase, but I think I might have to watch it again and find out. Though the 2.30pm timeslot tells me she probably doesn’t.
It’s a little bit annoying that Hating Alison Ashley is on at almost the same time.
S’pose that’s what the red button on the machine’s for. It’s been on TV before — they all have, everything has — but you should record this or watch it if you remember.
It’s charming and amusing
First movie: Delta Goodrem fun. Craig McLachlan, Jean Kittson, and Delta Goodrem in her first (only?) movie, but Saskia Burmeister is really the star here. A for adorable.
And did you all swoon and carry on over Javier Bardem in Eat Pray Love? Please.
Maybe you should watch No Country For Old Men tonight, where he carts an oxygen tank around and walks up to people and holds the hose to their head and lights out. No real reason.
