Three Words: Arrested. Development. Movie.

Michael Cera finally stopped holding out and agreed to terms for the Arrested Development movie.

Fucking outstanding.

It still bothers me that FOX canned the show for poor ratings and never gave it another shot, the way they did Family Guy. Even worse was when Entertainment Weekly teased us with rumors of the show possibly going to Showtime. Just imagine how the show would've worked given the creative freedom of a premier cable network like that. At least now there's some hope on the horizon for us loyal fans, especially in speculating what the "A" plot of the movie could be or what guest stars would return (Scott Baio returning as Bob Loblaw or Charlize Theron as Rita Leeds would be the ultimate goodness).

There's so many story lines they can venture into it, it's just too much to handle right now. The obvious choice would be to have Michael fall in love and get married, only for it to be spoiled by the family in some comical way. I'm sure they've got plenty of ideas, so I'm simply hoping for a 110 minute romp that will suffice years of waiting and have many memorable quotes like this one:

Tobias F√ľnke: Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over - an analyst and a therapist. The world's first analrapist.
