Wonder bread

Curtis Hanson builds us a cheese sandwich out of Chabon's novel

Late in the film, when Leer's fabrications have finally gotten his elder's goat, Tripp leans across a table and intones, "Don't expect me to feel sorry for you, because I don't know who you are." Back at you, professor. Ultimately, the only memorable sensation one takes away from this movie is a vague sense of Pittsburgh in gray. Wonder Boys is as detached and unfocused as a college pothead. And about as much fun.

Old love: Michael Douglas and Francis McDormand ponder life. Pass the joint.
