My husband emailed me gleefully yesterday to tell me that the Arrested Development movie is a go. I don’t know quite where he heard it, though, so I’m hoping it isn’t the same quality of good news as when various Bluths announced the project in interviews over the last two years. It’s been the world’s longest flick-tease.
Can they do it, though? I’ve watched my AD dvds so many times I think the laser has worn them transparent. I have whole episodes memorised, which is annoying to the other people who try to cleverly quote them only to get them wrong. And be corrected by me. It’s as though AD quotes have entered the same territory as urban legends. Don’t say them around me because I’m the tight-assed killjoy who will correct you about it. (Yes, I know it’s rude. No, I can’t help myself.)
So, anyway, back to the movie. Am I excited? Reservedly so. I think more AD to obsess over is almost always a good thing. But if they screw it up badly (think “Sex And the City” movie) then it tarnishes the canon.
Oh brother. What is my problem? An Arrested Development movie is the best thing since sliced bread and I’m excited already.
