Frannie and I came home late from the bar last night, both a little tipsy (we had a driver). We worked on the puzzle side-by-side, and were very close to finishing in a single pass from top to bottom. There were a few things we skipped, like maybe PAVLOVA (12D: "The Dying Swan" ballerina), and I doubt we remembered AWN (17A: Grain beard) right away, but whatever we passed on at first, was quickly filled in. I suppose that's the way it goes on a Tuesday, when you have two well-oiled minds working together.
The theme was, I thought, poor. Maybe it's just that I'm a little unclear on the concept, but is THEGRADUATE (51A: 1967 Dustin Hoffman film) really a "date movie?" And the circles... well... Frannie dislikes them in general, and this one was not my favorite circle puzzle, let's leave it at that.
I remember liking a couple of golf-related clues: 53A: Not a club for big shots? (NINEIRON) and, well, now that I'm looking for the other one, I realize that it was a clue that I mistook for a golf clue, but wasn't - 59D: What a caddy may hold. Not a "tee," but TEA. Not bad. Also, I enjoy the word LENTEN, and like any reference to The Simpsons (64A: Neighbor of Homer (NED)). And I have a feeling I've seen the clue 33A: Drilling site (MOLAR) before, but I still liked it.
Lastly, I very much doubt that the use of UMLAUTs in Mötley Crüe's name was facetious, at least as I understand it. If you're just using the word to mean "funny," but not necessarily intentionally funny, then, ok, yes. Maybe.
