Thanks for nothing, AMC.

Ok, now I'm pissed.

I was all excited when my tv guide indicated that AMC (American Movie Classics...scoff) would be showing Big Business. The 1980s classic comedy starring Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin as two sets of twins that get mixed up and separated. One Bette and Lily are raised in Manhattan by their high-power stoke-broker parents, and one set of Bette and Lily are raised in the sticks. When the rich Bette and Lily's company decides to strip-mine the town of poor Bette and Lily (Juniper Hollow, natch), hijinks ensue!

Anyway, this movie is comedy gold, and is the source of my dream to always stay in the Plaza Hotel in NYC one day. So imagine my shock when I sit down to watch the movie on my DVR and instead I am given....Caddyshack. Don't get me wrong. Caddyshack is a great flick. But I was really hoping that it would be Big Business. My DVR list even TOLD me it would be Big Business.

Why you gotta do that to me, AMC? Bastards.
