While in Austin this past weekend John, Joe Mande and I found almost all the locations from Friday Night Lights. John did his Buddy Garrity impression for most of the tour, which may account for why Joe only joined us on the first day of sight seeing. Yes, we did spend two days doing this.
It did take two days and it was completely worth it. For the record my Buddy Garrity impression is very very good. Some of the words I say best as him are “Lyla” and “Eric!” and of course, “the Boosters.” Saying the Boosters really helps me get into it. The best part of the tour for me was when we were at the real life Panther field (a functioning high-school called Pflugerville High) and I tried to take a photo of the real Panther athletes. Joe Mande correctly pointed out it was bad to photograph high school boys. Point taken.
"Lyla, I owe it to the Boosters" — Me as Buddy Garrity.
It’s Complicated is a porno movie for women in their 50s and 60s. It features a college graduation, attractive kids who don’t want to leave home, a group of fun female friends including Rita Wilson, Alec Baldwin, a woman who owns her own Dean & Deluca type business yet never has to work there, Steve Martin with two tickets to a Jazz Festival, a beautiful kitchen, and plans to redecorate that kitchen. Also every man in the movie looks like he was dressed by a group of women. Also all the music sounds like it’s from a Starbucks car CD. The one fatal flaw is that they never show you the new kitchen. Come on!
