So Sunday night beloved boyfriend and I had a date to go to the movies and when he picked me up, I swear, I was like a friggin’ mental patient. You know how you try on 10 different outfits and nothing looks good because you’re too goddamn fat and your face looks weird and your hair looks shitty and you hate all your clothes and you just want to cry?
Yeah, that’s what he had to contend with when he arrived at my door. Poor guy. Let me remind you that I was doing all this primping so I could sit in a dark theater for two hours, where, even if I looked fantastic, no one would see me.
Remember this from a previous post?
Imagine that to the tenth power. Do you ever get crazy like that, or is it just me?
Anyway, we saw the new Woody Allen movie, Whatever Works, starring my hero, Larry David. L.D. basically plays himself—the same guy we see on Curb Your Enthusiasm—but OMG, what a great movie and I’m not just saying that because I love Jews. I thought it was hysterical and so well done. I highly recommend—two thumbs up, four stars.
The review in our local Las Vegas newspaper said that if you liked The Hangover, this movie is not for you, and all I can say is NO SHIT! Are Mike and I the only people on earth who thought The Hangover sucked? We actually walked out after about a half hour. Please, I am not above stupid humor—I think What About Bob? is the greatest movie of all time—but we found nothing funny about that piece of crap. Nothing. Yet it will gross at least 10 times more than the new Woody. See, that’s when I think I’m out of whack with the rest of the world. I’m still trying to figure out what people see in Julia Roberts.
Oh, they showed the preview for Ang Lee’s new movie, Taking Woodstock, which comes out next month. It was shot in upstate New York, and guess who worked a few days on the set last summer as an extra?
Yep, our Courtney. You can see why the casting director was psyched when she showed up at the casting call. Can't wait to see it.
How about you? Any movies you're looking forward to? What makes you feel you're out of whack with the rest of the world? And please, please tell me you thought The Hangover sucked, too.
