Re: Los Angeles
The movie, it could be said, had a crazy plot.

Insofar as there was a plot.

Granted, the saga of the Dog Clan gaining revenge on those who had wronged them... without realizing that they were doing it... or fully realizing that they'd been wronged... could be said to have a story.  The saga of a clutzy ninja charming the princess of a rival clan and stealing her from her fiance through pure heart... without knowing it... could be a subplot.

But mostly it was an endless sequence of beautifully timed acrobatic farce.  For 93 minutes.

"You and me both," Jo said.

"Ah, that's the mistake you're making," said Polly.  "Clearly, this movie was never designed for 'thinking.'  This was a movie to laugh and marvel at, and then either forget or have odd conversations about."

"I do not really understand," Alice said.

"It's okay," Kendra said. "You don't have to understand everything at once.'

"Yep!" said Polly.  "Don't worry.  Everybody encounters things that they don't know how to deal with.  The important thing is learning how to fake it."

"I," said Polly, "had a blast.  But you could say that I'm easily amused.  What about the rest of you?"

"It was, uh, interesting?" Jo said.

"Yes, it was," ALice said.

"I liked it," Kendra said.

Jo shrugged.

"I don't know, I just didn't like this one much."

Re: Los Angeles
"Um, okay," said Polly.  Awkward, when you wanted to find out what someone liked and they wouldn't tell you.  "Do you watch a lot of movies?"

"Huh," said Polly.  "Well, that figures.  Let's fix that sometime, so you can get a better handle on what you want, OK?"

"Sure," Jo said.

"Um, can I ask something?" Kendra asked. "Can we go see the Hollywood sign?"

And you arrived just as the sun was setting.

"Wow! It's so pretty!" Kendra said.

"I believe I can see that the site has certain aesthetic," Alice said.

"It does look nice," Jo said. "I'd certainly like to try climbing it."

Re: Los Angeles
Polly grinned.

"...Welll... why not?  Let's give it a shot!  But let's be sure not to break it.  Oh, also, at least one actress committed suicide by jumping from it, so be sure not to fall.  And, uh, watch out for ghosts of frustrated actresses."

"Okay then," Kendra said with a loud gulp. "L-let's do this."

"You do not have to do this," Alice said. "I will stay here with you."

"Race you to the top," Jo said.
