And finally we see the source of Manny's so very confused understanding of masculinity.

Another resemblance, with French actress Audrey Tautou.

...are both good movies in which Audrey Tautou's role is much smaller than her photo on the box.

*SPOILERS!!!*

Xavier definitely should have ended up with her. She was so much cooler than everybody else. Wendy got so lame by the end of the second one.

Of course, I'm too lazy to post any photos to prove it, but has anyone else noticed how much Cillian Murphy looks like Nora Zehetner? (And for that matter, has anyone ever seen them in the same room together?)

MORE SPOILERS!

Jesse,
I disagree. Quite frankly, I think Xavier was a selfish bastard, and he only finally started to become a worthwhile human being when he finally got together with Wendy. I liked the first film a lot better, though. And dude, William was in Muppet Treasure Island!

I don't know about Cillian Murphy, but I found another resemblance between Nora and the star of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1978), Brooke Adams.

MORE OF 'EM (SPOILERS)!

Oh no, I didn't think he deserved her, I just like her the best out of all of them. You are right that he does become a better person in the second one, though the first movie was so much better. The second one was subtle, though, in the way it satired that ridiculous sort of melodrama, Xavier's story really does fit the genre. The endings of both movies sucked! I LOVE WILLIAM. My friends and I say "the L'Auberge Espagnole scene" to refer to the cover-up where William saves his sister's ass.

STILL SPOILIN' AFTER ALL THESE POSTS

Oh man, that scene is so great! In addition to being funny, I really think that's a transition for William's character. He does something pretty selfless to save his sister's ass....I'm not sure I'd do the same for my sister.
But you're right, the first film is much better. That's because even though Xavier is the main character, it's really all about the ensemble: that group of friends and how they interact. I love how they have "(Name) is not here, can I take a message?" in various different languages posted by the phone. Hehe.
