Lady In The Water

I saw it Saturday afternoon (big thumbs up to the Bedford's Movie Tavern off of Central on Airport Freeway - I'd never been there before). The Plot: A sea nymph (who isn't hot) turns up at an apartment complex in Philadelphia. All the residents team up to help her get back home by way of a giant eagle. The Real Plot: I wasn't kidding. That's the real plot. Suspending Disbelief: Not a single person in the apartment complex suggests that the sea nymph is just a nutcase on crack. Suspending Disbelief #2: No one turns on a television or a radio and I feel pretty comfortable in saying no one picks up a telephone. Worth Seeing: I'm still not sure.
