If you recognise the combination of those names, you’re just as happy as I am today. Because you love Reality Bites. Those of us who love and lived Reality Bites know that it’s not the best movie, with not the best acting, and we will tell that to the hater who huffs about how they don’t understand why Reality Bites came to mean what it means that they’re not illuminating for us anything new. Full Story
