Response to H2O Man (Original post)

13. Weird that you mention this today, because I just watched it last night...

My husband rented it and both of us were impressed with this film. Frances McDormand and Matt Damon had great "chemistry" together as co-workers. I didn't realize that the guy who played Dustin was the co-writer with Matt Damon until I saw the bonus features. His character threw me for a loop when his "environmentalist" role was revealed.

I loved the small town feel, but I see where it is so easy to persuade those who do need the money. It's very predatory, however, I can see how some would just take the money and go.

Not too long ago, we had a story in our local news about rural well-water catching on fire when it ran from the faucet. They showed just how simply turning on the faucet would make it blaze up, all while just trying to get a glass of water. I remember thinking WTF is up with this? Living in Texas, we are inundated with this issue.

Glad you brought this up.
