Lee Really Wanted to See Frost/Nixon

It was a cold and icy morning and we all just can not stand sitting at home. I told Lee he had a choice, stay home and watch the Giants football game or go into Manhattan to see Frost/Nixon. He chose the latter. It seems strange that a 20 year old who was not yet born during the Watergate era would have a fascination with Tricky Dick. It actually comes from Jeopardy. Whenever his name comes up in a question or answer Karen and I yell out Nixon. This movie came out several weeks ago, but it has not played in our local multiplex or even in Queens. So we saw it at the Regal Theater complex on 8th Avenue and 42nd Street.

The acting was suburb with the diction of Nixon and Frost being recreated perfectly. In my opinion the entire Watergate mess could have been avoided if Nixon had taken responsibility and fired his entire campaign staff right after the burglary.
