Certainly, Reiner knows this isn't a news flash, yet he stages this movie as though he's discovered some great truth -- or to put it another way, “the story of us.” Well, I'm not so sure I want to be a member of this all-encompassing “us.” Willis and Pfeiffer are perfectly fine -- and perfectly gorgeous -- as the maritally troubled couple, Ben and Katie Jordan..."

The Tillman Story
Documentary about the high-level cover-up of the circumstances surrounding the death of NFL star turned Army Ranger Pat Tillman.

Film Review  September 24, 2010, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The government campaign which followed attempted to valorize the memory of Tillman as a heroic figure and symbol of national pride, but it was based on specious and manipulative information, indicative of the war-planners’ desperate need to invent heroes and good news at that point in the war. Tillman was awarded a Silver Star and a story was spun about his heroic conduct, sacrificing his life to spare those of his buddies..."

"...After he shined as a new kind of confused and despondent hero in Bottle Rocket, after he saved The Royal Tenenbaums from drowning in cleverness, after he anchored Old School with a little real-life pathos, I thought for sure the youngest Wilson brother was bound for great and original things. Well, The Wendell Baker Story (which made its world premiere at South by Southwest Film 05) will teach me to get my hopes up..."

The Eighth Annual Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest: Introduction
Features Story  September 17, 1999, by Clay Smith
"...Near the end of the dinner held for the final judges of the Short Story Contest, where they hash out their likes and dislikes about the stories and decide upon the winning entries, a little voice from the corner of the table said, "Let's just go home and write short stories." It was Carolyn Osborn's voice, and it eluded the detection of most of the people at the table. It wasn't sudden inspiration from this year's stories that prompted Osborn to utter that suggestion but one of the relatively frequent lulls in conversation that always seems to happen during the final judging, after someone offers their opinion and someone else offers theirs and then the table becomes still and there's a bit of silent staring...."
