    Sounds like poor Richard Corliss didn’t get his early pre-Toronto screening of The King’s Speech from Harvey. Waah!

    Richard Corliss may very well be right (regarding TKS and it’s shameless Oscar chances).

    That said, bring it! I eat up movies like The King’s Speech. And here’s hoping it’s half as good as the bloggers/critics are saying.

    There’s nothing “shameless” about it, IMO.

    Corliss’ “why is this a film?” question would from me get the response: “so more people can see it?”

    I think How Do You Know directed by James L. Brooks is going to make it into the 10 Best Movie Nominations!!! And Reese Witherspoone looks like she might have a shot at a nomination!

    “How Do You Know” does look really good. I just sense quality from that trailer.
