Back from the long weekend....had a good one! On Saturday Andrew and I drove up to my parents' moutain place in Big Canoe, which is always fun/relaxing/beautiful. My plans for hanging out on the lake and playing on the sliding rock were dashed as the weather was not agreeable, but we had a cozy time indoors....reading, eating and watching lots of movies. Mom and I were overjoyed to find a Dorris Day movie marathon on Turner Classic Movies. Oh, I love Doris Day! It was a struggle wrestling the remote away from Andrew and my dad but we managed to catch most of "Please Don't Eat the Dasies," "Send Me No Flowers" and "Julie." Sunday night we had rented "White Oleander" (it was okay) and then after it was over we saw that "Fatal Attraction" was on. Ooooo...it is such a great creepy movie, and Andrew had never seen it! I hadn't seen it in years but after watching it again I've decided "Fatal Attraction" should be shown as part of pre-maritial counseling. Scare tactics never hurt anyone.
Interesting sidenote: I was just reading trivia for the movie and it says that the original ending had Alex (Glenn Close) committing suicide and Dan (Michael Douglas) being arrested for her murder! A great plot twist but it was changed after the preview audiences felt that Alex was not appropirately brought to justice. The original ending still appears in the Japanese release.......hmmmm....wonder where I could get my hands on that?
