Iris: I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night. And then, there's another kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space! Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life! The worst Christmas', the worst Birthday's, New Years Eve's brought in by tears and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of my life. All because I've been cursed by being in love with a man who does not and will not love me back. Oh god, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat thickening! Absolutely can't swallow! All the usual symptoms.
True story. When I was in my late teens/early twenties, I used to put these two books in my carry-on when I flew. You know, in case Edward Burns, Matt Damon or Ben Affleck happened to be on my flight and sitting next to me in coach. A flight, mind you, that was most certainly headed to Dallas to see my dad. Nowhere near NY or LA, or even Boston. But JUST IN CASE the miracle happened, I wanted these books handy for an autograph opportunity and a chance to chat about the business. Sometimes I miss my old self, never one to shy away from wildly unrealistic dreams. Also I miss when I had time to binge watch these movies. Also I miss the 90’s. .
LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT (2002)
Great story but not much of great execution. It's nonetheless uplifting and enjoyable.
The score by David Newman is quite magical and can easily be identified as the work of Thomas Newman's brother. Too bad it has never been released, I mean, officially.
two crazy murderers videotape their crimes with the hope to sell the tape to TV talk show for hard cash. so with a plot like that, no wonder you can find two consecutive mirror games in this movie.

The Edward Burns Drinking Game
One of the questions I’m always asked - besides, “Hey, what are you doing in my backyard?” - is “What is the EDWARD BURNS DRINKING GAME? How do you play?” For starters, the EDWARD BURNS DRINKING GAME is, in fact, a drinking game.
The rules are simple. Watch any of the early movies written & directed by Edward Burns. Be it his breakout Sundance Film Festival Winner THE BROTHERS MCMULLEN to romantic comedy SHE’S THE ONE to gritty crime drama ASH WEDNESDAY, as long as it’s a movie written & directed by Burns.
Drink every time Burns peppers his dialogue by saying: “Yeah, no...”
“I don’t know...” For beginners, we recommend SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK and drink each time Burns says: “You know...” or “l don’t know” or a combination of both. Before attempting to play the Edward Burns Drinking Game with an entire movie, try playing while watching just one scene with Burns. Tinseltown Takedown has prepared one for you. Good luck and get drinking!
Сегодня исполнилось 50 лет Эдварду Бернсу. Его не назвать топовым актером, но на качестве фильмов с ним это не сказывается. Во всяком случае я смотрела удачные примеры. Например, "Афера" — почему-то не очень известный фильм на любимую многими тему мошенничества и ограблений. А он, между прочим, классный, стильный и яркий. Так что если вы любители жанра, берите на заметку!
Edward Burns. 50 years today. That promising actor who started in indie films and also did sone films as a film director. He’s married with Christy Turlington since 2003 but he dated Heather Graham (occasionally same birthday day) for a couple of years. #bday#edwardburns#hot 🔥 #madeinusa 🇺🇸
