Fiction, Friends, Eco-Moments
Stranger than Fiction
Ecorazzi reader Christine writes: “I just saw Stranger than Fiction, and everyone in that movie took the bus. Yay for public transportation!”
Thanks for the tip, Christine! In looking at the IMDb profile, the first picture that showed up was this one of Will Ferrell on a bus. You weren’t kidding! We need more movies that make it normal to take public transit.
Last night I watched Just Friends for the second time. (It’s much funnier the second time around.) There were a couple of “eco” moments in the film. Here’s one. Chris was hoping for a real date with Jamie, but then Dusty and Chris’s mom come along and ruin everything…
Chris’ Mom: Dusty, what kind of car is this?
Dusty: Carol, this little Japanese princess here is called the Prius.
Chris’ Mom: I think it’s so neat that you kids care about the environment.
Chris: I love the environment.
Chris’ Mom: But honey, don’t you drive a Range Rover? Aren’t those bad?
There’s also a part at the beginning that had me rolling, but I can’t find it anywhere. You see Samantha Jones (think Paris Hilton) on the TV, she’s in Africa on a humanitarian mission…because teaching the natives to become vegetarian is really important. Below is a video with clips to introduce you to Samantha James, played by Anna Faris.
