Over the weekend I watched the Cole Poter bio-pic 'De-Lovely', which was, I'm sorry to say, de-tedious. Cole Porter was a witty, globe-trotting bon vivant who wrote some of the catchiest tunes of the 20th century; you'd think that, armed with songs like 'Let's Do It' and 'Anything Goes', it'd be a snap to make a film that's at least fun.

But apparently not.

Still, at least I learnt a few things. For example, it is possible to take a veritable armada of tap-dancing showgirls in silver hotpants and make them boring. Who'd have guessed?
