Unlike movies of yesteryear where the mousy girl who works in a bookstore is transformed into a glamorous international star (Funny Face starring Audrey Hepburn), the latest buzzy TV show feature Pamela Anderson as an international party girl who chucks it all to work in a bookstore. I have to give them credit for the clever title: “Stacked”.
I’m sure that she’ll have lots of situations where cute boys come in and ask for smart books and classic, manly Hemingway novels. Back in real life, I got punk shoplifters, motorized old men, pervy ne’er do wells and sci-fi geeks.
If Pam Anderson can get more hotties to wander the shelves, she may yet make up for that novel Star and the godawful rambling column they gave her in Jane. I want more people to buy books and look sexy reading them.
