"It's a Wonderful Life" was on last night, of course, so I decided to put together a selection of synopses I have written over the years -
A small town real estate operator sells his neighbors on a suburban sprawl development only to have the money mysteriously disappear at the end, setting the stage for a too-big-to-fail bailout.
For us, it stopped being such a “Wonderful Life” right around the 30th showing. After you’ve seen the small town simple folk plod through their bor...ing lives enough times, Potterville starts to look like the more attractive alternative. You only catch a glimpse in the film but it looks like they have bars and gambling. And whores.
An angel gives Jimmy Stewart a chance to see how his world would have turned out differently if he hadn't been born. We still want to see how his life would have turned out differently if he'd found effective therapy for his life-devastating co-dependent behavior. "Teacher says every time a bell rings, daddy suffers another crushing disappointment."
We’re waiting for the update, in which Mr. Potter gets prosecuted under the Dodd-Frank reforms but manages to turn the townsfolk against George Bailey by sponsoring a Tea Party rally.
Help me win a beer! I don't ask these favors very often, but I am in a race-for-clicks with a coworker at my day job this week. You don't need to read it. Just click open the link. I'll think of you as I sip the beer when I beat him. http://newhope360.com/…/frontline-and-problem-plane-wreck-j…
