Portlander's Movie Log - August, 2013 (32 movies items)

" Watched August 26th - Netflix Streaming - 1st Viewing "This can't be - I must be dead - I am dead, I'm in Hell - and my punishment is spending eternity on my own show!" - Jack Gable Delirious is another John Candy movie I never had gotten around to seeing - it is about a soap opera writer who finds himself a character on his own show after a car accident - and gets to write it as he goes along - I like Soaps, so I enjoyed the satire of the genre in this movie - although it was not as sharp "
