Saw SUPER again tonite at Enzian in Orlando area. Near full house at theatre....and just as funny as the first time. As I watch a second time I noticed how great a job Ellen did as Boltie. Next time you see it watch her eyes...especially as Libby. That scene at Joes Grill (dont make fun of my name) is really hilarious....Airplane-esque

That was a very funny scene.

I wonder how many people watching the movie remember those old Libbys Libbys Libbys commercials.

Yep, that's one of many reasons why her performance was top notch. The comic store and garage scenes are a couple of great examples.

I also noticed that Libby was wearing a scarf in several scenes (comic store, gun store, bedroom while Frank is making bombs), which is very reminiscent of Ariadne in Inception. I wonder if Ellen will do that again in the Woody Allen movie.

Just saw it last night at SCI-FI-LONDON and I was generally blown away. Ellen's best role to date in my eyes. Gushy is my new favourite adjective.

Did anyone else notice the dance Libby does just before she "has her way" with Frank was ridiculously similar to the one she does in Hard Candy? The shoulder movements?
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

I didn't notice while watching it, but now that you mention it, that is pretty similar to Hard Candy. Interesting coincidence.

Saw SUPER again earlier this week before it leaves the Orlando area. This time, people in the theatre were applauding after the opening credits! No kidding. Never seen that happen.

Like Milo said, SUPER is guaranteed to be a cult classic. I don't know if it will make hundreds of millions of $$$....but it should keep all involved receiving royalty checks for many years to come :D
