(a) I forgot that Forest Whitaker directed this movie, but for some reason he did not attend the premiere — or, at the very least, did not walk the red carpet. Also: Jerry O’Connell has a story credit on the script, and he ALSO did not attend, which seems out of character.

(b) Folks were OBSESSED with shirts that created the optical illusion that the wearer was in a bikini top in 2004.

(c) I regret not thinking to run this last week.

(d) In 2004, would we have anticipated that a person at this premiere would have won an Oscar?
