Don’t worry this is not a spoiler! It’s not even a review because I haven’t seen it. I will tell you what I know which enough to make me want to see it.

If you know something about circus history or Wisconsin history you know that they entangle more than a plate of linguine. That holds true today as well as in the past with the Circus World Museum and the Clown Hall of Fame in Baraboo, WI. There was even talk about filming the movie in WI but it didn’t go through because of taxes but WI didn’t miss out completely. Baraboo is also home to the most impressive circus library in the world and a circus wagon restoration facility both of which played a key role in movie production. Baraboo loaned the movie producers photos and videos to help create the scenes as well as 15 circus wagons that were used in the film. Pretty cool.

It’s not all good news. Water for Elephants stars America’s favorite vampire, Robert Patterson. The character name in this movie is Jacob, read the twilight books to find the irony. Reviews are mixed but just like every movie that was a hit book first everyone agrees that the movie cut a bunch of stuff out. I say that after every movie I see to make people think I read a lot more than I do.

I’m going to see it because I like circus and that’s good enough for me. I’ll take my wife because Edward is the sexiest vampire since Angel and that’s good enough for her.
