I never know how much cash I have until I look in my wallet anyway...and when I do I can't figure how fast I spend it!

Combine with the FX show "Wilfred" and you've got everything you need to peer into a dog's psyche.
I read a lot of webcomics and I always buy the printed compilations and other goodies. So I buying the DVD a good use of money to support the art of webcomics from which I derive much entertainment. That said, in my opinion, the movie was only so-so.
1) hit many great jokes from the strip - the conference in hawaii, Tajel's hippie-ness, lab role stereotypes, trying to secure funding, etc.
2) I thought male leads more-or-less matched their hand-drawn counterparts
3) I also thought DVD extras were entertaining, particularly the commentary
1) the main character had two different haircuts! Thought it was two different characters at one point! I found it really distracting.
2) sound quality was awful
3) acting for the main characters wasn't great, and was flat out awful for all the non-main characters
4) the female leads were not well matched to their hand-drawn counterparts. This is more of a nit-pick than a real flaw. The girl playing Tajel was gorgeous, though!
5) I thought Tajel & Slackenery's roles were marginalized, while Cecila's romance was given unnecessary prominence. I'll agree that Cecila and the unnamed main character are the "leads", but in the comic they don't dominate like they did in the movie.
Bottom line: the movie was made by students, with students, for students. And I think it showed. I don't recommend it for people who aren't fans of the strip. But for people who are fans of the strip I found it to be a good use of an hour, if for no other reason then seeing your favorite strips acted out live.
I did the same. The pool wasn't just "people at work", they were all people *on my team*. So not only would I have been the only guy who didn't win, I'd have been stuck with all their work! Double-whammy! No way was I gonna stick around for that train wreck.
I'm not playing to win. I'm buying very cheap insurance against my life totally sucking.
No bars in more places...
Richard Hammond is gonna have a field day with this. I can't wait to see it on TG next season.
Interestingly, they are the two mentioned (big screen TV and Apple computer) and my car.
The first two pay for themselves. I had to replace my TV for some backlight issue and the Apple tech support for 3 years is really handy.
The third was a colossal waste, because I drive a Honda.
I would like to know where you're going for pizza...
Has anyone else noticed that every single one of these plans fails to account for asshats? Maybe instead of attacking spam we should be attacking the root cause: asshats. Of course, just my luck, I'd be ruled an asshat under the new law and get arrested.
I guess this proposes a legislative response to spam, which fails to account for asshats...ahh, recursion.
