"You shut your mouth when you're talking to me."

After doing some comparison shopping in SoHo, I finally settled on a new shoulder bag from Eddie Bauer. It's slightly bigger than my previous one, but at least now, there'll be more than enough room for most of what I carry around on a regular basis.

Saw Wedding Crashers last night at the less frequented (but not too forgotten) Loews Cineplex on 34th Street -- which charges a whole $1.25 less than the rest of the chain's locations in the city even if you don't have prepaid discount passes -- because Batman Begins was for some reason bumped from the roster at the last minute. It was definitely worth seeing for the chemistry between Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, but the mood also swings wildly and abruptly between laugh-out loud hilarity and attempts at seriousness and drama, and also includes an appearance by Will Ferrell that really just falls flat. Still, it's worth seeing, especially if you're a fan of Wilson's unique delivery and general "Hey, it's all gonna work out in the end, so let's enjoy it, buddy" attitude. Oh, and the cameos by Sen. John McCain and James Carville are too brief -- I was hoping for an actual line.

On tap today: A visit to City Island, which is an inhabited part of the city that's officially part of the Bronx and is served by an MTA bus, but isn't even on the MTA's main subway map -- notice there's no island off the coast of Orchard Beach (at the top, in the middle).

The title of the post is a one-liner from the movie.
