I feel like I'm made of TOTAL EPIC FAIL right now and I don't know why. I don't even know what triggered it. Brain, stop being stupid, okay?

Mom and I watched like the worst 80's movie ever. Well, actually, it wasn't the worst 80's movie, because there's a whole lot of competition for that slot, but it was the worst 80's movie starring Mark Harmon and Jodie Foster about suicide and baseball.

And half of it was driving. Like, I'm a big fan of Mark Harmon and all (even if I prefer Seasoned Mark Harmon to Old Skool Mark because wow, the grey just really works for him), but even I can't take repeated fifteen-minute stretches of him smoking and staring longingly out of a train/bus/convertible Volkswagen.

Also, for a movie with Harmon at first billing, there was a depressingly small amount of him. The movie was an hour and a half long. At least 45-50 minutes of that was focused on teenage-version Mark Harmon's character. And the rest of the 45 minutes was Mark Harmon driving soulfully. And there was only like a minute and a half of Mark Harmon in baseball pants, which was the whole reason for buying the movie.

Jodie Foster was pretty awesome, though. Also. Random trivia: According to IMDB, she was the "first choice to play the role of Princess Leia in the original "Star Wars" trilogy but could not get out of her contract with Disney. George Lucas then decided to make Princess Leia older." DUDE. WHAT. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS.
