I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Whip It is the movie of the year. I haven't seen it but I'm pretty sure I'm right.

What about the scene where they all meet their doubles?

I know you're a big fan, of the movie I mean, but did you get the in-joke to The Office contained in that scene?

UK or USA? I've watched both, but either way, no I don't see the reference. Enlighten me.

It's the UK one, and in that little meet-up Declan is played by Martin Freeman who was Tim on The Office, while Dianne is played by Dawn Tinsley, who was Dawn on The Office. When they walk past each other they nod at one another. It's not a big thing, but having the major love interests in The Office give a sort of wink like that is one of the billions of reasons why I love SotD.

Good one! I didn't even think about the casting choices. Every time I watch SotD I notice something new, and this is just another thing to add to the list.

The girls from Spaced are in the second group as well, and they're matched with Pegg and Frost. I always assumed all the pairings were deliberate, not just Tim and Dawn.

I don't think I've seen SotD since I finally got around to watching Spaced, I'll have to look for that next time I check it out.

Agreed.  Though, it looks better than Public Enemies.  Not saying, much is it?

Don't worry flieger, I'm with you on this one. The look is one of the only things this movie has going for it.

I liked the way Public Enemies looked. There were a couple of moments of graniness which didn't work, but I do want to steal bits of Mann's style for movies I make so that's saying something.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

a couple moments of graininess would've been a positive!
