New Chick MoviePosted by admin - 08/07/10 at 01:07 am
I’m really interested in that new chick-flick movie that’s coming out. It’s the one where the woman, even though she’s smart, funny, and exceptionally good-looking, is having a hard time finding a guy. She’s going out with a string of losers, and one night she runs into this guy on accident. She doesn’t like him, because even though he’s also smart, funny, and really good-looking with great hair, they get off on the wrong foot. They run into each other a few times, and somehow, they wind up thrown together thanks to a child, or a well-meaning friend, or something like that. Then they both realize they’re perfect for each other, and they get together right at the end of the movie.
And the movie ends there, with their first kiss. It doesn’t discuss their sexual pasts, or how they’ll build on their relationship, or even if they’re compatible beyond just the surface attraction of both being beautiful people. Even though the guy tells her he loves her because of one of her little quirks, like the way she eats her peas, or holds her fork, or stocks her bookshelves, the movie doesn’t mention that he really has no idea what the woman is like. And the girl isn’t sure if the the guy is pro-life, or what religion he is, or if he grew up in a carny. The movie just ignores those things in return for a long-distance fade out camera shot while the Dianne Warren-penned closing theme song plays up the credits.
Yeah, that movie looks pretty good. I just can’t remember the name of it.
— Reid Kerr also wants to see that buddy cop movie where one guy doesn’t play by the rules.
