I can't wait. His preview makes me want to crawl under my bed and hide. It looks like it's going to be about what everyone who has NEVER actually been here thinks it is.

You can weave a made for TV movie from the pages of the popular news website. With all it’s salacious stories and comments. Lot of material there.

Hollywood. That's what Dad said about the movie "Perfect Storm". I'm sure this will be lots fluff.

I dunno. It sounds like it is a movie with a plot about real people. I HOPE they are typical real people and don't make us all look insipid and having dementia and wearing white shoes and having blue hair..

He does seem "surprised" we are so like him. He just turned 24. If we don't like it we can get together and make a movie about young people who spend most of their time in small offices in Manhattan.

Oh yes.

I think they do it for those multimillion dollar yearly bonuses Wall Street firms give their productive employees!

I saw them filming months ago and wondered what it was. Now I know. From the short "preview" it looks like the story of "old people at the twilight of their lives" seeking love, being pom-pom girls and driving golf carts under a lawn sprinkler. Looking closely at the old guy, yikes, in the very unflattering but intentional shadow, staring lovingly in his future mates eyes standing in the water makes me cringe because that is NOT what **I** see here in The Villages. Yea, it's a movie, I mean a "documentary" but it reinforces all the stereotype of The Villages (and other similar places). I'm sure not many people are going to see it because documentaries never do well in the theaters but I would like to see it in full.

It looks like it will follow two individuals and one couple who are finding it difficult to fit in here. It is true that some people may find it hard to fit in, but I just hope they are clear that it is the exception rather than the rule.
