Steve Martin

Here's an article about the new film that Steve Martin wrote and stars in, "Shopgirl". It's based on his book which I haven't read but I have read "Pure Drivel" and "The Pleasure of My Company"and they were both brilliant. The article brings up an idea that I have long championed; Steve Martin is better than any movie that teams him with Queen Latifah.

John Cleese once said if you want to understand Steve Martin, you have to look at the credits of his films. If he's listed as a producer or writer, it's something he deeply cares about. If not, well, Steve has a very large art collection. Based on his involvement with "Shopgirl" I'm going immediately.
