Knight At The Movies: Bette’s Best Role In Years!

Helen Hunt’s directing debut gives Bette Midler (and herself) their best roles in years, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a familiar but funny gal pal flick

With Then She Found Me Helen Hunt steps into rare company – she’s one of the few women to star and direct themselves in a movie. It’s a pleasure to report that Hunt’s directing debut is as assured and oddly compelling as the material upon which it’s based, the chick lit novel by Elinor Lipman. Like Hunt’s favorite acting tic this is a movie that squints every once in awhile, allowing you to contemplate the characters and leaving you with a wry smile once you’ve had a chance to mull it over. It also offers Hunt and her co-star Bette Midler their most satisfying parts in years. Read More

Post Review: Then She Found Me

NewYork Post

April 25, 2008 — FEW Oscar winners have disappeared from the spotlight as quickly as Helen Hunt, who followed her Best Actress win for “As Good as It Gets” with a quartet of high-profile leads including “What Women Want” in the fall of 2000.

After sporadic appearances in the likes of the

little-seen “A Good Woman” (2004, as Scarlett Johansson’s mother), Hunt has taken control of her career, not only starring but also making an auspicious debut as a writer-director on a smart little bittersweet comedy “Then She Found Me.” Read More

BLB Box Office Numbers: 04-28-08

The weekend gross for Then She Found Me was $74,000. However, it only played in New York and Los Angeles in a total of 9 theaters averaging $8200.00.

This made it the highest per average grossing film of the weekend.

This bodes well for the movie when it goes into wide release next weekend.

Thanks to Richie for the figures from Box Office Mojo…..

Love, Mister D

Lost In Bonkers: Mister D Goes To New York

I. Thank You Oprah

    (Me before leaving Nashville)

Fly! Fly! Fly Away! So high I almost touch the sky! Well, this is where I am; almost touching the sky. As I’m writing, I sit in an airplane continually interrupted by my mother who sits behind me. Why, dear lord, did I invite her? (Well besides financing the trip.)

“Don, do you need a Dramamine?” “Don, did you eat something before you took your medicine?” “Don are you still nauseous?” Finally, the man sitting next to me on the aisle asked my mother if she’d like to trade seats. Lucky me! He said the prospect of me throwing up on him was not appealing. Whatever. Read More
