Flirting y Wonder Boys

Flirting - engaging teen romance movie set in a 1965 Australian boarding school between a stunning Ugandan student(played by Thandie Newton) and a stuttering outcast.This movie also had Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman in it.But the pulse of the movie is the awkward and charming courtship between the 2 leads.I enjoyed the movie alot- but the ending left me rather flat. B+

Wonderboys - a novelist/professor(Micheal Douglas) with tenure has a wild weekend-doggy homicide,failed marriage,unexpected expecting,robbery,snow,hoodjumping,etc.This Curtis Hanson flick has a strong cast and plenty of chuckles- better than the average mid-life crisis story-cuz of the humour. B-
