Juliet and Juliet

I am HIGHLY amused by this!!!!!

From the Boston Globe:
Thou art no Romeo

Boston's beloved pair of swans -- feted by city leaders, residents, and tourists alike as one of the Hub's most celebrated summer attractions -- are a same-sex couple. Yes, scientific tests have shown that the pair, named Romeo and Juliet, are really Juliet and Juliet.

The city's Parks and Recreation Department conducted the tests months ago, but didn't announce the results for fear of destroying the image of a Shakespearean love story unfolding each year in the Public Garden...

This year and last, the swans have laid eggs in the spring and then stood guard at the nest as visitors and nearby residents made regular pilgrimages, hoping to see the eggs hatch. Neither batch did. Turns out, that's because they were never fertilized by a male swan.

Another Ebert review

I sometimes think Ebert is at his best reviewing BOMBS.

Case in point:

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo

Choice quote:
Does this sound like a movie you want to see? It sounds to me like a movie that Columbia Pictures and the film's producers... should be discussing in long, sad conversations with their inner child.
