I did enjoy 'Contact' but I was annoyed that only Jodie Foster's character went, instead of the 'representative team' that went in the book.

I'd still like to get a message to Jodie Foster regarding a story she kept repeating in interviews to publicize the movie. When she was in university, she took a course in Biology, and when she wrote the exam the first question was: "Describe a cell in 4 words." She basically flipped, tore the exam in half and walked out.

My message to Jodie if anyone has any suggestions on delivering it: "The answer was simply 'Basic unit of life'. No need to overreact."
