Always listen to Elaine

Remember that post I made a year ago about reading the English Patient and then discovering the Seinfeld connection?
Well, I really enjoyed the book, and I figured I'd like the movie.  Who cares if Elaine said it sucked, I'm cultured, gosh darn it!

Yeah, don't watch the movie.  It's rated R for good reason.  I turned it off.  They took a book with multiple story lines and plots, about war and suffering and overcoming PTSD, and focused solely on one plot line and managed to turn it into a-rip-our-clothes off fest.  Maybe it gets better after torrid affair, but I'll never know.

I'm sorry Elaine, I should have trusted you.
