It's a romantic, teeny-bopper, every girl's dream fantasy chick flick. It stars Julia Stiles.

Cute movie... and of course, always a happy ending.

I give it 7 out of 10 stars.
you said "youz".

yep...you're definitley from Philly!

There's a dark colored (Black, I think.. you only see it at night) E36 328i in I Know What You Did Last Summer... It's a good movie. There's a similar car (you only see it from a distance) in I Still know What You Did Last Summer.

In I Spy, during the getaway sequence in the streets of Budapest, several E36 sedans and convertibles have a less-than-stellar day.

Also, Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson are sitting in an E36 'vert, but the interior shot looks like an E46.

The movie itself was mediocre. If you have some kind of unlimited rental service, it wouldn't be a complete waste of your time... (How's that for a review?)

On "Crossing Jordan" (please don't ask me how I know this), they track down a serial killer in Mexico driving a christmas-tree green 633 with the original BBS wheels. I suddenly started rooting for the killer.

Dude! How did I miss that? Swordfish is like in my top 10 movies of all time and my ex and I would watch that movie over and over on DVD... we've seen it at least 20 times. LOL. We know all the scenes and lines, for the most part.

Anyway, I just saw an old episode of Sex and the City - Season 3, episode 1 or 2, when Carrie is being pursued by a really cute, older man with gray hair... Carrie has just missed the last Staten Island ferry and he pulls up and says, "Need a ride?" (made me go weak in the knees!) Anyway, he pulls up in a black 7-series (you know the generation before this current one.)

In last week's episode of Lost, Kate's doctor friend drives a gray E34 5er. ...Which Kate then uses for a getaway and crashes.

The movie "Sideways". Pretty much every car in front of Thomas Hayden Church's fiance's place is a Bimmer. And at the wedding - every car in the lot is a BMW (except for the old beater Saab).

According to TiVo, there will be a half hour history of the 3 series on Discovery Thursday morning at 4AM EST, and again on the morning of Thursday 5/26. It's a tie-in to the new 3 series just debuting.

Ironically, the channel's abbreviation on TiVo is DSC

What's the official title of the program? All I'm seeing is paid programming at that hour.

I have Windows Media Center PC: it says "Evolution of an Icon" exploring the history of BMW 3 Series from the 1968 Model 2002 through the all-new 2006 BMW Series. Comes on 3:02 A.M. CST and runs 29 minutes (until 3:31 A.M.)

Weird. When I do a search in the Yahoo TV listings, it comes up, but when I just look at the grid for 4am Thursday, it says "Bosley...Hair Loss Answers."

Um.. if you're in CA, you would be on PST, which is 2 hours behind CST. So, if the show is slated for 3am CST, it would be on at 1am PST in California... not 4am.

Ok, I hate computers. My computer decided to do an automatic update and obviously rebooted during the show because I only recorded 4 minutes of the show. Either that, or TiVo did something to mess with everyone using competing services. I say that because of the message I saw right before it started (see attachment). Well, I've done a few things to make sure I see it next time.

Nope. Discovery (and most network) air-times are ET/PT, and CT is 1 hour behind. That's why they say times like "8/7-Central." In the Yahoo TV listings for my provider, it has a 4:00am broadcast time for Evolution of an Icon.

However, it did not occur to me that last night was really Thursday, 4am.

Next airing is May 26 at 4am (Thursday morning / Wednesday night).
