VOD ‘Tower Heist’ fizzles; a mini Joan Cusack tribute

In this week’s second big corporate reversal, Universal has announced that it will not be making the Eddie Murphy/Ben Stiller comedy “Tower Heist” available on demand in test markets (for $60!) after all, in the face of numerous distributors saying they would boycott the film if they did so. Reason appears to have prevailed, at least for now.
I saw Joan Cusack’s name in a birthday list in the newspaper earlier this week, and it reminded me of how much I enjoy this very funny actress whenever she’s on screen (which isn’t often enough, these days). And I finally found a YouTube clip of one of her great moments: In the 1997 comedy “In & Out,” she plays a teacher who learns on her wedding day that her fiance (Kevin Kline) is gay. The spin that Cusack puts on the line “Was there . . . oh . . . any other time you might have time me this?” cracks me up every time, as does the wedding-dress wrangling required to get herself into a getaway car. Enjoy. (And note that there’s one utterance of R-rated language.)
