Edelstein: I thought Billy Elliot was a pretty limp movie.
Loughlin: Speaking of limp—I gotta ask ya—you think Billy was a little light in the loafers? Maybe that hurt him with the Academy?
Edelstein: Well, his sexuality wasn't really the point.
Loughlin:Almost Famous, GET OUTTA THE WAY!!! Oooh, too bad.
Edelstein: You don't like to see that … that was a sweet picture …
Loughlin: That's gotta hurt, huh? The darling of all you critical ay-leets …
Edelstein: Looks like two supporting actresses and a screenplay slipped through, though.
Loughlin: That little Goldie Hawn girl, she can be my groupie any time. Hey, who's that driving the Wonder Boys car? Robert Downey? It's off the track—and mowing down bystanders!
Edelstein: Well, I thought that movie didn't work.
Loughlin: I guess you could say Downey lost by a nose, eh? Anyway, Traffic moves into the lead. They've got a whole bunch of cars on the track!
Edelstein: I think Hollywood respects that film's multiple subplots and vast ambition—as do I.
