IMDb is full of emptiness. Or empty of fullness.

Self-professedly "Earth's Biggest Movie Database" (as opposed to where else?), the IMDb has inadvetently come up with a truth among all of Hollywood's fictions (and its movies, of course). It has created a new feature where readers can add detailed summaries of movies to each flick's page; until someone has done this, however, it reads 'This plot synopsis is empty'.

This was a ray of light on the page for The Brazilian Job, a sequel to the 2003 Italian Job slated for a 2009 release. Only now a sequel? How foolish of Michael Caine not to realise there was a lot of money to be made by saving his men from a cliffish descent and transporting them (and Charlize Theron) to Rio! (Don't ask why I was even looking up The Brazilian Job.)
