Last night Christine and I went to go see “something borrowed,” featuring a hot in the face John Kransinski.
We thought it was going to be a really cute… lady film with really cute ladies… ahem Ginnifer.
What we got was the worst. The absolute stab your grandma in the face worst.
This girl did to her “best friend” what most people wouldn’t do to people they don’t like. I couldn’t do it, but we’ll talk about my being a chicken another time…
I would like to send this out to anyone else out there who saw this film… I was not team Rachel, or team Darcy… If I were picking teams I would be on Team Ethan (John K.) Seriously.
He was the only likable character and at the end of the movie when he Jim Halpert’s the best way he knows how… My heart was melted by his very adorableness… as did the heart of every other girl in the theater… and what we got was romanitcal bubkis.
To quote the other pair of girlfriends in the theater “Oh Hell No.”
I know that it was based on a book, but screen tests must have shown that every girl in the world would love this movie if they changed the ending… I mean we all know that we don’t get to ride off into the sunset on a train with Bill Pullman (a la “While you were Sleeping.”) But that doesn’t mean we don’t like fairy tales… especially if they involve running off to London with your hot friend and never coming back.
Editor’s note: Bill Pullman I’m still down for this… I’m just saying.
As a Note to the People… Please don’t see this movie if you fall under 1 or more of the following categories:
-You are on a date with your boyfriend, please don’t do this to him (unless you don’t like him, then by all means carry on.)
-You are out with a girlfriend (as you will be staring at each other for 20 minutes in a parking lot of the BJ’s, asking each other… did someone really make that movie… true story.)
-If you are by yourself, just go watch Thor, or go climb a mountain… you’ll feel better for it.
-If you like having 12 dollars.
However go see this movie:
-If you seeing it will save a boat filled with children from not being blown up by the Joker (Batman’s Nemesis).
Yes. That is the only acceptable reason to see this movie. Besides, hating yourself, and your money.
p.s. this movie made “Just Like Heaven” starring Mark Ruffalo.. not so bad.
