I saw Kate & Leopold last night. I know, I know, it’s a “ckick flick” but it was entertaining and funny, so not a complete loss. It being a time-travel, comedic, love story, I think they could have done a much better job of fixing the gaping continuity holes that exist in the movie. There’s a concept in Hollywood called “suspension of disbelief” where the audience is expected to sometimes believe the unbelievable in order to enjoy the story. But Hollywood sometimes takes it too far and asks too much from the audience, as is the case with this movie.
Shortly after the 9/11 attacks I thought of something, but never mentioned it publicly. You have to wonder why American Airlines and United Airlines were being targeted by the terrorists. If you put yourself in the terrorist’s shoes it makes sense to choose airlines whose names reflect that which you are fighting (protesting?). American = America. United = United States. Why, for instance, did the terrorists decide to not use Delta or Continental, both of which have flights that fit the terrorist’s modus operandi for 9/11. It must be especially bad for American right now since they had that flight go down in Queens in November and were the once again the target of terrorists last week with that shoe-bomb guy.
