Okay, this is bugging me. I saw magnolia several months ago in the theaters and thought it was awful. Awful. Awful. I felt cheated out of my three hours. It had roughly 800 plots, none of which really hooked up, and none of which were really resolved in the end. It felt long, it felt pointless.

The question is: can anyone out there who liked it tell me why? What was the big message? I’d like to know. -pm

Sorry, I can't shed any light since I haven't seen it. But now you reminded me that I need to see and once I do that I'll see what I can offer.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
