I finally saw it (All The Real Girls) last night!

The short version is that I loved it, and I am trying to find the time to watch it over again today before I have to take it back. I love the score and the soundtrack (I'll even forgive the use of stop-motion stuff because it had Mogwai over the top), love the flow of the movie, perhaps even more artfully stitched together than George Washington. Some of the humor could have been corny and some of the dialogue between the two main characters could have been mawkish, but both dependeably trod their respective thin lines. I can forgive Zooey Deschanel's occasional puppy-cute musings on peanut butter and trampolines if just for her beautiful, beautiful eyes - the finest orbs to grace a movie in quite some time. Hurrah!

Any word on what Ramsay is up to? Is it still Lovely Bones?

I just did a little investigation, and some sources are now reporting that Peter Jackson wrested the project from Ramsay! Very little info, tho.

doubtful. He was nodded early on because of Heavenly Creatures, but there's been little follow-up. Perhaps we'll see him as EP?

Green is the nexus btwn Apatow & mumblecore now. He's seen his last positive review from Armond White.
