OrangeNeckInNY says: on 11/14/2008 at 1:14 PM There really ought to be Star Trek-ish communicators we all can wear around our homes. This way, we can just tap it, ask for the person we want to talk to and it'll connect directly to that person's communicator. No more yelling across the house.

There's a scene at the beginning where Alicia Silverstone & her best friend are chatting to each other on cell phones while walking right beside each other to school.(I know, I know. I was forced to watch it a gazillion times with my step-daughter) Comments have been closed on this topic.
