You know how like, sometimes? You find yourself crying a little at a trailer?  And then you get mad because it's cheesy and manipulative?  Anyway, watch this, and see if two delicate tears don't roll down your cheeks...

Aside from being about homeless whales (for chrissake), it features America's third most loveable woman, Drew Barrmore (following Amy Adams & Zooey Deschanel)  and thrid most likeable guy, John Krasinski (after Joseph Gorden-Levitt and Conan O'Brien). 

Anybody notice that Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is being made into a movie? I should have known they would cast T. Hanks as the dad (insert Tom Hanks tirade).  My friends and I were just complaining the other day about how the Safran Foer wrote two incredible books and then goes on to write nothing but annoying shit ever since then.  Although, I admit I'm rather interested in Tree of Codes.  It's Eugenides's Marriage Plot that I'm quite anxious to ready right now and am in an epic battle with myself about whether or not to buy the hardback.

Carrie and I saw a movie over the weekend, the trailer for "Extremely Loud ..." showed beforehand and we both rolled our eyes at it. No less than two friends have told me since how good they think it looks.

I am afraid they're totally going to ruin my fav book with that maudlin-assed looking movie. SIGH.
