Oh I totally forgot to mention that I wrote a tiny note on the inside of the Netflix disc envelope when I sent back TN. So whoever gets it next....see if it's still there.
I'm sure Netflix owns more than one copy.
Yeah, I think we established that they have probably have two
vmh and DaMango were hoarding both of them for months....while I waited...and waited...

Dull and somewhat offensive? I think the commentary is oodles better than the film.
I strongly disagree. I adored Jemaine in the commentary. But I didn't really enjoy the commentary. I felt a bit bad for Jemaine, like he was uncomfortable and sort of trying to compensate for the sloppy and somewhat arrogant, flippant way the other guys chose to approach the commentary. I really wanted to hear what J had to say and I think the other guys may have gotten in the way of what could have been really interesting. Jemaine co-wrote this movie and I'll bet it meant something to him. When he did get the chance to share his thoughts it was wonderful. As I recall, the other guys were dull and yes, offensive.
As for the movie...it makes me happy. I still giggle remembering bits of it. I even laughed as hard as my 14 year old son at bits Jemaine wasn't even in. And some bits of the deleted scenes were quite funny. Well done, Jemaine and crew.

I think it would be weird if a grown man felt threatened by that kind of thing. Iâ€™ve never had a boyfriend who didnâ€™t support and enjoy whatever other crush Iâ€™ve got going on and vice versa.
Yes, but even the strongest male ego can
be delicate at times. Not to mention there are
a few insecure men out there too.... And maybe I'm wrong but I think there are degrees of "supporting" your lover's crush. For example: My man tolerates my FotC obsession with a great sense of humor, and even enjoyed watching the show...(once). Our house is adorned with a heavy dose of Conchords memorabilia. He will let me travel all the way to Europe to see them live, but I'm telling you...I don't think he would be terribly thrilled to learn that I was voted the Biggest Breterosexual or the um dirtiest member.
I couldn't even fault him for being a bit disturbed about it either. I think it's just for the best that he mostly believes that my adoration is for the band, and based almost entirely on their musical and comedic talents. I can't be the only one who keeps the significant other in the dark just a bit.
TN is a healthy dose of half naked, insanely gorgeous, hilariously sexy, hip thrusting Jemaine Clement...so I am impressed with mock's husband's choice of gift. Mock, did he watch the movie with you the first time you saw it?
I wouldn't have been able to pull that off. Nope, I made way too many funny noises watching Marvin work his magic.
That's it. I'm putting this movie back in my queue. Does anyone have it on loan from netflix right now? Don't make me wait for months again.
