@ Fitz + Dan — I thought I hated “Nurse Betty” the first time I saw it, but I was younger and dumber then. Once I watched it again I appreciated the darkness of the comedy and saw how sad the story really is.
I loved this movie when I saw it in the theater. It had to be a secret love, though, as the scalping scene alone was enough to traumatize my girlfriend at the time. I watched it about five months ago and found that I still thought it was most excellent., in that perfect uncomfortable way seen mostly in soap operas and Lifetime movies.
Damn, I loved Nurse Betty, haven’t seen it since it came out though. Only thing I remember is Kinnear going off on Renee at the end on the TV set, some grip tells him to leave her alone and Kinnear says something like, “Shut up! You’re a grip! Go…grip something!”
So good, been a while since LaBute has done anything this solid. Some day…
