A Cinderella Story

Just was watching Pretty Woman again on cable, because apparently, they'd rather show that piece of tripe 75 million times instead of exposing kids to the classics like Godzilla vs. Megalon.

The thing that really bothers me about the film is that it is always referred to as a "Cinderella story." But my version of Grimm's fairy tales seemed to include nothin' about no pimps or ho's. I don't remember Cinderella workin' it at Prince Charming's ball.



Hey baby, you wanna date?


Man, if the glass slipper fits...

Yo Various,

I was flippin' around channels and my rugrat piped up that he wanted it to stay on the dinosaur monster movie. SciFi had the 2001 Gozilla vs Mothra, etc, etc. It was quite nice to see. Not too bloody, but plenty of mountains falling on people.

Anyway, please don't blame your sad girlieman chick-flick viewing habits on television programming. Sure they suck, but your selection did too.

Kid, if you want to watch Godzilla movies, you have to break your addiction to the Lifetime channel.
