Jeff and I went and saw the movie 'The Informant!' last Friday. We both enjoyed it - the acting is pretty good, it's funny without being too silly, and it's based on a true story, which is always interesting. In fact, this week's episode of 'This American Life' on NPR was a re-broadcast interview with Mark Whitacre (the real-life informant that was the basis for the movie). Actually, a screen-writer heard the interview when it originally aired, and that was what encouraged him to write the screenplay for the movie Jeff and I saw.
