Sara and I rewatched Joe Versus the Volcano this week, and I’m happy to say it held up. Neither of us can understand why this happy (and moving) little film doesn’t have a massive cult following. Meg Ryan plays three women who are so different it’s hard to believe they’re all her. Tom Hanks is at his funny/touching best. The whole thing is weird and wonderful.
It shares a premise with Alec Guinness’s Last Holiday but, like the remake of Guinness’ film starring Queen Latifah, it has a happy ending. I like happy endings, me. Bitterly ironic can go suck eggs.
Sara and I couldn’t agree more with this review on Combustible Celluloid:
Playwright John Patrick Shanley made his movie directing debut with this defiantly strange, totally under-appreciated, yet completely wonderful romantic comedy.Flibbertigibbet

My nails this week are Winnie-the-Pooh, because Winnie-the-Pooh!
Yeah, a little bit of smearing there. Such is life.
All the products this week are from Maniology. The base color is Winnie, the stamping polishes are Annato Clay and I See Blue. Piglet is reverse stamped with Flashdance. The gold flakies are Honeypot. The plates are MXM089 and MXM090. Maniology has just released two additional Winnie-the-Pooh plates, as well.
