James, I finally saw "Life as a House", what did you think?
I haven't seen it yet, but your comments don't surprise me, as studios often see the success of a smaller film and try to xerox it to death, or until it doesn't become profitable. They do it every chance they get and it often comes in threes, so expect one more similar film like that to come down the pipes in the near future.
Plus, it really hasn't grabbed me as far as the promo material went. I wasn't really inspired by any of the claims of Kevin Kline of being Oscar worthy material (I see that claim made at least 4 times in a month). As for Hayden Christiansen, I can't help but think that they were riding his landing the role for Star Wars Episode 2 for all it was worth. Otherwise, I think a lot of people would've been saying "who?"
