Why I hate Albert Brooks, Leelee Sobieski and the Sundance Channel

My First Mister. That’s why. I also hate Tivo for recording it of its own volition for me. I hate myself for watching it last night, too.

If by “hate” I mean “was moved to tears by.”

There’s not much to say about this movie without giving it all away, and I hope that someone out there might make the effort to watch it because I’m telling you to make the effort to watch it. My First Mister might be a cross between the self-deprecating humor of Steel Magnolias and the angst-driven character study of Ghost World.
