I love Canada, Oh Canada. My recent trip to Montreal says it all. But, it took an e-mail from a colleague today to show me that I really have options.
I don’t know why this came to mind, but I couldn’t help but think about a hilarious movie, The Last Supper. It probably came to mind because I saw a commercial with Ron Perlman in it. This is a fantastic flick about a bunch of liberal graduate students in Iowa who decide to have a conservative over for lunch every Sunday and kill the guest if (s)he won’t convert. Ron Perlman looks positively demonic; he played the Rush Limbaugh-esque role perfectly.
The rest of the cast was top-shelf. Cameron Diaz was nothing short of vicious, as was Courtney Vance. Other big names included Annabeth Gish (Beautiful Girls), Ron Eldard (Black Hawk Down and on Broadway, Doubt) and Bill Paxton (Big Love). They all came together perfectly … so much so that a glance at Ron Perlman in a commercial would make it all come rushing back.
So, if you haven’t seen it, see it. Now.
