I dated The Wife tonight. We tried and failed to go to a movie.
I was reading Ebert reviews to pick some possibilities. Near the bottom of his Rendition review I found the best turn of phrase I've heard in a long time.
See, Rendition is about Extraordinary Rendition, the procedure of removing a suspect from their life and doing stuff to them that - depending on what your definition of is - is torture.
Ebert quotes James Rocchi from Cinematical.com - "Anytime someone tells you that you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs, immediately demand to see the omelet."
