While You Were Going Hollywood

Have you seen 'Duplicity', the Clive Owen/Julia Roberts vehicle about rival pharmaceutical companies and the ex-CIA, ex-MI6 spies who work for them in counterintelligence? We saw it this weekend at the only cinema we seem to frequent: on a plane. Let's just say it has an interesting view of the drug discovery process (a view that has none of the verisimilitude of this). We could probably excuse that if the rest of the movie were more watchable. But at 40,000 feet above the Atlantic (admittedly with several interruptions from our three-year old and one-year old traveling companions) we could only come up with one solid takeaway: Paul Giamatti and Tom Wilkinson would make spectacularly fun Big Pharma CEOs.

While you were sadly getting swept by the Marlins ...
