Anyway, the real point of this post is about the stepmother character in the movie, Dominique. About halfway through the movie, I had to run to the IMDB because I knew that I knew who she was, but I just couldn't place her. Turns out that she's played by Jane Lynch. At first glance, I didn't really recognize anything she had done (and she's done a ton of guest spots), but on the second time through, the sole thing I recognized her from suddenly leapt out at me: A Mighty Wind, where she played Laurie Bohner, the porn star turned folk singer. (Sidenote: I love A Mighty Wind. If you haven't seen it, go watch it right now.) I'm also partially amused to learn that she plays the mother in the new Holly Hobby DVDs. So yeah, finding that out bumped my enjoyment of the movie up a level, and I even got the song that her character sang in her youth(?), Hold 4 U, off of iTunes. 'Cause Jane Lynch can definitely sing (another reason to go watch A Mighty Wind right now).
