Flipping channels this afternoon while I catch up on email, I stop at UPN. The voiceover says “‘To Kill a Sunrise,’ our afternoon movie.” I think to myself, I’ve never heard of that movie. Off to IMDb to look it up. No matches. Huh? So, I wait for the movie to start. Mel Gibson. Michelle Pfeiffer. Kurt Russell. Wow, big names. Why have I never heard of this movie? Then the title comes on-screen: “Tequila Sunrise.” Ah, I see. The announcers at UPN must be complete idiots.
