Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind is a rather strange but engaging film about a man (a really amazing Jim Carrey) who finds out his long-term quirky girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet, "plus-sized" drama queen, who looks fabulous and healthy without having sticks for arms) has undergone a procedure in which she erased all memory of him from her mind. The man, Joel, decides to undergo the same procedure, and contacts her doctor and his wacky staff (Tom Wilkenson, Kirsten Dunst) for the all-night procedure. In the middle of the procedure, as each memory is being erased, Joel realizes he wants to remember Clementine- good, bad, and ugly, and scrambles to hide her in memories that don't involve her so she can stay forever in his mind. Confused yet? We were too, and we had to pause and discuss with each other a few times, but for the most part, we found the story actually got better as the film progressed.

(BTW, Big said he'd never have memories of me erased if we ever broke up. Aww.)
