Beth got a Blockbuster gift card for Christmas, so we ventured into a  Blockbuster for the first time in several years and rented some movies last weekend.  Blockbuster hasn't changed much, by the way...

One of the movies was Penelope, chosen mainly because it has Christina Ricci in it.  It's a cute modern-day fairy tale about a pig-faced girl, and I'm surprised it didn't do better in the box office.  I was curious to see if maybe it was becoming a cult film on video, so I did some googling.  I didn't find anything about a Penelope cult, but I did find a discussion of the film on a message board devoted to women with big noses -- the web site is called  Don't you love the Internet?
