I read somewhere that Enchanged won't be out until about November 2007, I think. ok, all, I saw Freedom Writers last weekend. You are absolutely on target, Burke Backer. It was a good movie but, not too different from others in the past. Patrick had a few more scenes than I thought he would and they were all good (he was very dreamy, purplemerder!) - and, it was weird seeing him with someone other than Ellen! Not too much romance.


Enchanted sounds very cute, Kimmy. Is it in the theaters yet? I really like Hillary Swank and of course our own Patrick Dempsey, but there have been quite a few movies, including Dangerous Minds, that center around primarily minority kids in inner city high schools and the gang infested, poverty stricken lives that they lead being "saved" by the young white-girl teacher. The hook in this one is that she uses their own journals where they have written all of the details of their hard lives in the ghetto to help them see their way to a better life. The preview seems to indicate that by calling it to their attention that they have lost friends and family in gang violence that they will turn away from the gangs. It is based on a true story, but I find it a bit contrived. Kids join gangs for a multitude of reasons not the least of which is for protection. I don't think one of those kids needed to be reminded of the lives lost. I haven't seen it yet, though and may be pleasantly surprised. I do think Patrick's role is relatively small, but any time on the big screen is fun for us, the fans.


I caaaaaan't wait to see this! I wanted to see it even before I knew Patrick was in it, that's just an added bonus!! :P Has any one seen previews for Enchanted? Patrick's in that, too. (I'm pretty sure he plays the "married man" ... of course!) Where a young girl met and fell in love with a handsome prince. News of this romance upsets his mother, the evil queen. Who then uses her black magic to send the girl hurtling out of the animated world into the one place in the universe where there is no true love: modern day Manhattan.The now-real girl now has to survive in the real New York City. But -- against all odds -- she does find true love in Manhattan. Only this time around, the girl winds up falling for a married man.And -- if this situation weren't already complicated enough -- that handsome prince that the girl originally fell for? He uses his mother's black magic to also travel to Manhattan. But he's soon followed by the evil queen!So now the young girl must decide. Should she opt for the fairy tale happy ending or stick with real love in the real world? Even though her relationship with a real-life married man would undoubtedly be much more complicated than the "happily ever after" that she's bound get if she sticks with her handsome prince.


I know what you mean GA-Faithful. I feel the same way about Isaiah and Sandra. I've seen them in other films and it just seems wrong when they are kissing on someone else. Burke and Cristina belong together on Grey's! I don't want my bubble burst by reality like real life partners and other co-stars. LOL


I'll be honest I am kind off shelfish about my favorite couple. Im so use to MerDer it just seems odd seeing them with other people on screen. I havn't read the reviews yet and will probably have to wait until it comes out on DVD to watch it.


Wow I meant to say him.........i am not doing very well spelling.......he just gets me all hot and bothered when i talk or think about him.


Texasgreysfan - you will have to let us know how it was..........I probably will wait till it comes out on dvd so i can look at him over and over.....hopefully there are some sexy scenes with hime.


It didn't get very good reviews, but then I don't always agree with the critics. I agree, TexasGreysFan, I can't wait for Thursday either, and finally we will know what is going to happen next for all of our favorites.


I think you're right purplemerder.......I read something about her choosing her students over teh husband and he exits.....hopefully, not too soon! I am going to see this tomorrow!! Can't wait for next Thursday......

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
