Surely someone said something

It sounded like a bad joke. Anjelica Huston directing Rosie O'Donnell as the mentally disabled sister of Andie MacDowell. To bastardize Voltaire, if Riding the Bus with My Sister didn't exist, we'd have to create it. The movie teaches the important lesson that people with mental disabilities are oracular mirrors which reflect not only our future selves, but society as a whole. They have magic powers and if you catch one she has to take you to her pot of gold!

Granted, I've never read the book, so maybe it treats the whole "Things I learned from someone who on the surface doesn't seem nearly as smart as me, but in reality knows more because of her simple nature" a lot better than Hallmark. Or maybe the author gravy-trained her sister like Oprah on speed. Either way, from all accounts the movie was an abortion.

Luckily for us, we don't have to watch it to enjoy it's craptacular magnificence, TVgasm live-blogged the entire movie. Better yet, it culled the greatest moments from the movie so we could watch.
