Do we need another teen movie that
tells the story of Cinderella?

"Not really. I thought the original was good enough. If people want to watch it, that's their decision."

"I think it's cute ... if they're gearing towards the kids, I say go for it. It really isn't needed, but I would go see it." "Why not? I wouldn't go see it, but if it's good for the teens now days ... and it's entertaining for them, go for it."

Now that "North Shore" is on the air,
do you have high hopes for the other
two Hawaii-based television series
on the way?

"No. I'm not really interested. I only watch sports." "No. I haven't seen ('North Shore'). I don't care." "I have my doubts. I'm from the North Shore, and 'North Shore' is lame. It's cheesy."

Is road construction interfering with
your summer social life?

"No -- I don't drive. I catch bus. It doesn't really matter." "It's really annoying. I take the bus, and it's ridiculous! It takes me two and a half hours to get home!" "It's definitely frustrating and irritating. And I don't necessarily agree with the times that they plan the construction."
