The Hello, Dolly Factor. All those people humming "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" this weekend? They saw Wall-E. It's the only movie I've ever seen that can be described by both "sweet love story" and "biting satire." It's also the only movie in history in which a Barbra Streisand movie saves the universe.
Rinse and repeat. Sun in the morning, humidity like molasses, clouds an hour later, thunderstorms, clear sky and sunshine an hour later, more humidity, more thundershowers, clear skies again -- since when did New York in June turn into New Orleans in August?
