  2. what does your german word mean? and wasn’t there a broadway play back in my day named TOYS IN THE ATTIC? or some such thing…I may have a copy? I guess I can google…I never heard of this one…was Victoria Tennant the dame pretending to be married as in ONE MAN ONE WOMAN to Steve Martin for two minutes after he pretended to throw over Bernadette? you are right. people are damned screwy no matter what FRONT they attempt to project! and what do you know about Ethan Hawke and a Victoria Tennant type filming four romantic films in a series? tavis smiley interviewed the lady last night. and letterman interviewed spyke jones…not very impressive. I loved your review…but I ain’t gonna watch this one!

    • yeah, save yourself and DO NOT WATCH. it’s ridiculous. and, yup, that’s the same victoria tennant (the steve martin dame), and ethan hawke and julie delpy did a bunch of romantic movies that people like though I haven’t wanted to watch: before sunrise, before sunset, and before midnight.

      and as for the german word: Schadenfreude Listeni/ˈʃɑːdənfrɔɪdə/ (German: [ˈʃaːdənˌfʁɔʏdə]) is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.[1] This word is a loanword from German. The literal English translation is ‘Harm-Joy’. It is the feeling of joy or pleasure when one sees another fail or suffer misfortune. It is also borrowed by some other languages.

      as for toys in the attic – this is what I found: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057598/ – not a musical, I don’t think?

      • so that is what that nasty all too human trait is called? wow…been on the receiving end of that german word way too many times…with “be praying for ya” heaped insincerely on top like a damned gleeful cherry! wow, never too old to learn! now, how about TOYS IN THE ATTIC?

  3. i never read this, even though every other girl in my school did. i always get freaked out my child and animal abuse stories and tend to stay away from them when i know that’s the basis of a book or movie. i love your second paragraph about being condemned to repeat history….so funny. with all that being said, i really had no desire to watch the movie, and happy i didn’t after reading this )

    • I admit I had a morbid curiosity which prompted us to DVR this and watch earlier this week. But I agree with you about those kinds of movies, and my own uncertainty why Hollywood even makes them to begin with. But it did make for fun writing – I enjoyed putting this one together. Thanks for the compliments!
