This week, we watched A Life Less Ordinary from 1997, directed by the great Danny Boyle. Young Robert (Ewan McGregor) has dreams of one day quiting his crappy job and becoming a trash novel writer. But when the decision is made for him, he decides the only thing left to do is grab a gun and kidnap his boss' daughter Celine (Cameron Diaz). What could possibly drive a man to this stage of desperation? Turns out, 2 crazy angels (Delroy Lindo, Holly Hunter) have to make Robert and Celine fall in love, or else get kicked out of heaven for good! Their crazy plan unfolds brilliantly in this black comedy. This movie is a favorite in Casa De PDSMiOS, and we hope you dig it too!

Star Trek: Insurrection from 1998. Data once again spoils everything for the crew of the Enterprise E, this time by attacking small children while violating the prime directive. Why does anyone trust this robot? Well, at least Picard gets a chance at love thanks to these actions. Join us as we discuss this relatively unexciting movie!
