A Night At The Movies or, You Must Remember This by Robert Coover

"She smiles again, a smile that seems to melt his knees."

Written in the parlance of old school movies, these short stories seemed an intriguing premise. That having been said, I'm not sure I needed to hear about the details of Rick and Ilsa's sex life, I'd like them to remain more like the characters in the movie.

The book is undoubtedly well written and interesting but I found my attention wavered. As is often the case with short story collections, there were definite stand outs and others that didn't quite hit the mark.

4 out of 5 movies aren't quite so sordid in parts.
