Finding a movie’s official website isn’t always the no-brainer it appears to be. For every BeingJohnMalkovich.com that takes you right where you want to be, there’s a http://www.originalsin.com (it’s not what you think).

CASTAWAY.COM There’s plenty of beach, but trusty Wilson is nowhere to be found at this Australian travel site.

CHOCOLAT.COM Belgian chocolates online! Send a box to Harvey Weinstein. He’ll thank you.

TRAFFIC.COM No drug running, but the site offers plenty of info on the latest roadway snags.

ALMOSTFAMOUS.COM T-Bone & Chef Eddy’s Almost Famous Gourmet Gifts features a lot of barbecue sauce but not much rock & roll. Go figure.

WHATWOMENWANT.COM Billing itself as ”love, romance, sex, and sexuality,” this site aims itself at the female market — but still sells copies of Red Shoe Diaries.
