Luscious and I are both sick at the moment (another post on that later today) so last night was resting, couch-surfing, and revisiting a comfort movie. We settled on one of our favourites, and a movie that is such an underrated little gem, Mr. Brooks, one of the very few movies in which I genuinely enjoy William Hurt and in which Kevin Costner gives arguably the first of his relaxed, subtle late career performances. It’s stuffed with fantastic acting turns, and even Danielle Panabaker — so utterly awful and unconvincing in the The Flash TV series — is given just enough to do to turn her limited range into an asset. Hell, any movie that makes you want to see more of Dane Cook should be counted as a miracle equivalent to a Mechanical Turk or roc egg!

It’s a joy.
