So not buying that Atlantis was a spaceship full of Australians.
Now if Wanda had gone underground and discovered that she's queen of the mouse people? Totally believable.

Ok. Atlantis went down anywhere from 9,000 to 1,600 BC. At the time, what little English that existed was a purely Germanic language. It took Roman invasion for Latin to begin to effect English and eventual invasion of France and other romance based languages to further modify the actual words used in the language for Modern English to evolve. We still used sentence structure based on the original Germanic structure of the language, but were far more influenced in terminology by the Latin based languages. And the Australian form of the language did not begin to evolve until the early 1800s. So tell me. Please. HOW THE HELL DID A SOCIETY THAT SEPARATED ITSELF FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD IN at the least 1600 BC FIRST OF ALL LEARN ENGLISH AND SECOND OF ALL SPEAK IT WITH AN AUSTRALIAN ACCENT????????????????????????? (and a bad australian accent, at that) Just had to ask that question.

Don't understand why they keep calling her big boned. She is smokin hot from the first moment on film and the glasses and frumpy hair make her even cuter. I also think her voice is sexy in an anime kinda way. I was sad at the end when she "grew up" into just another boring popular girl.

That scene at the end with her ex-boyfriend really bugs me. At the beginning she's everything that's unhealthy in a woman-she doesn't want to do anything or go anywhere. It's not just that she's afraid of flying. So she gets clingy when he tries to break up with her, telling him, "I'll change, tell me what to fix and I'll fix it," which is clingy and unhealthy. She needed to focus on herself a bit more and accept the person she was, and he was smart to recognize that he was not compatible with the person she was, and wouldn't try to make her change.

Then, of course, she does change. She grows more self-confident, she found an ability to travel and a sense of adventure, which might make her a good fit for this guy. But somehow he comes off as immature there, and she's somehow too good for him. It's like she's getting revenge for him for not deciding to control her life and tell her who to be. Weird.

It somewhat annoys me that they have host segments that are pretty obviously supposed to show how much they know about (in this case) models. If you're going to make a commentary on it fine but if the joke is "look how much we know about asinine things" then it's not funny to me.

Is this the first and only movie to show the life cycle of a letter from blank page to intended recipient's hand? Why did they think we needed to know how international mail works? If they were smart they would just have her get a letter and assume the audience understands that somebody wrote it, sent it to the post office, put on a plane to the U.S., then delivered by the mail van. Not sure about that last part, though. Although maybe this is padding.

It's been a long time since I last watched this one. When I was stationed in Korea in 2000 my now-ex-wife threw out a bunch of my stuff, including all but one of my tapes. For years all I had was a single 9 hour SLP recording that I managed (through very, VERY carefully skipping commercials) to barely fit 5 episodes on. This one was the first on the tape, so I got pretty tired of it.

While Kathy Ireland may be slightly taller than the average woman, it's not enough that she strikes me as "big-boned". If they really wanted to sell us on that idea they should have hired smaller actors or had her stand on a box or shot the scenes with everyone else standing several feet behind her like they did in "Lord of the Rings".

Given the fact she is so young, I would imagine she would be a minus prescription for her glasses (generally short sighted). It was really bad form to have her squint at a menu and comically defer an opinion. Because she isn't forty five, her crystalline lens would be flexible and that menu should have been as clear as anything. Strange how to managed to spot her friend when she was arrested in a truck moving over bumpy ground in low lighting :P Not funny I know, but just saying...
