Describing Vanilla Sky to the N., who has never seen it:
- Okay, so there's this rich guy. And Cameron Diaz. And they are at a party, and Diaz is crazy, so she gets him in a car and crashes the car. And he wakes up and the city is empty? And maybe it's the future? I don't know. Anyways, she dies and he lives, but he's put in prison with Kurt Russell and also his face is all bunked up. And Penelope Cruz is his girlfriend, and maybe the movie takes place in two different time periods? Or maybe he time travels? And maybe he also kills Girl Cruz? Argh, I can't rememer. Anyways, all you really need to know is that this movie SUCKED. Oh. And at the end of the movie, it turns out he is part of some giant corporation experiment for eternal youth or something.
- Is that why he's wearing a mask? Because he has a baby face? Eternal youth? Seriously, did you even see this movie or are you lying, because there's no way a movie could have a plot like what you just described.
- Seriously. But who cares. It was a terrible, TERRIBLE film with a good soundtrack and a great trailer.
- Cameron Crowe.
