Iowa Film Critics Circle Goes for ‘Up in the Air’

  • None of us Minnesota film critics really likes any of the others. It would be awkward to try to have a meeting to vote. The seating arrangements would be a nightmare, and whenever one of us said something the others would roll their eyes and snicker. Or fold their arms and glare. Life’s too short.

  • What if it were stocked with Cinnabon? Anybody could put aside their differences for the taste of delicious Cinnabon.
