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 â€“ sheâ€™s one of the few women to star and direct themselves in a movie. Itâ€™s a pleasure to report that Huntâ€™s directing debut is as assured and oddly compelling as the material upon which itâ€™s based, the chick lit novel by Elinor Lipman. Like Huntâ€™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 youâ€™ve had a chance to mull it over. It also offers Hunt and her co-star Bette Midler their most satisfying parts in years.

Mister D: Those people who saw the movie last opening weekend in NY and LA can vote “Yes” or the last option if you’re going to see it again. I should have had an option for those that had already seen the film…..
HUNT FOR A WOMBMATE
By LOU LUMENICK
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.”
Monday, April 28, 2008
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

Mister D: I just received this beautiful letter from Derek and hopefully we can help his charity out. The prize is 2 VIP Bette Midler Tix plus a RARE Autographed Print! Here’s a little more from Derek:
Hi there, Mr. D!
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know about a charity auction for two VIP tickets (plus signed print) to see Bette in Vegas. I saw your website, and yours appears to be most comprehensive authority on the Divine Miss M.
In case you have a slow news day, I figured you could post a mention about this in your blog — the link to the auction is below. The auction proceeds go to AIDS/Lifecycle (www.aidslifecycle.org) — It is a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride fundraiser for AIDS services and prevention.
Mister D: Stephen was just able to get these in now for us to enjoy, so enjoy we shall do:

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.
