Fact vs. Fiction, again.

Another movie that hinges on the nature of what we believe is HouseSitter. It stars Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn at their wacky best. I would love it just for this line alone: “Half of what we tell ourselves is fiction.” It’s…er, true. What are you willing to believe and how far are you able to deceive others and yourself? I’m not suggesting deception, but think about it the next time you make up a reason why something can or cannot be. Besides this profundity, it’s hilarious. Lemonie (the one who introduced me to Stranger Than Fiction) and I watched it twice in college. Friday night and again Saturday morning. But, then, I have a soft spot for Martin and Hawn.
