Fabulous Film Friday
I know I should be all "Oh my gosh! "Speed Racer" came out today! I loved Speed Racer as a kid!" Sadly, I am not. I just do not expect it to get me giddy today. Maybe it would have if "What Happens in Vegas" had not been released on the same day!!! Maybe??? Yeah?
I do not know what is with all the chick flick love I have lately, but if I have to deal with it, you have to deal with it too. It can't be too bad if the MPAA Rating states this: "PG-13 for some sexual and crude content, and language, including a drug reference." Crude? Have you ever seen them say "CRUDE" before? It's like they are saying the sexual content would have made the movie "G" rated as long as it was not "C-R-U-D-E."??? Oh, and the movie includes a drug reference? Should I be sitting on the edge of the seat waiting for the drug reference in order to learn something I should not be letting my little angel ears hear? Anyway, obviously the MPAA Rating caught my attention this morning...and I laughed.
So, here is the Yahoo! Movie synopsis:
Jack and Joy, two strangers who head to Vegas to drink and gamble away their separate troubles, end up creating a gigantic shared problem when they wake up married. To complicate matters, Jack then wins a $3 million slot machine jackpot using Joy's quarter. A sadistic judge freezes the money (and the annulment) until the two can prove that they've tried for six months to make the marriage work. It's an all out war as they fight over the fate of the millions, but a funny thing happens on the way back to the courtroom. Actually, a whole lot of funny things, hence the term "comedy." But one is, they fall in love.
Have you seen the previews for this? I think it looks funny but I will probably be disappointed when I find out all the funny parts in the film are scenes I have already seen...in the previews. I hate when that happens. ANNOYING. But, I will give cute little Miss Diaz and yummy Mr. Kutcher-Moore a chance.
Marriage is sucking whole lot right now, isn't it??
How many times do you think she screwed up that scene? I bet it was funny at the time.
See??!! Drunk marriage debacles are great!!
Oh, the sexual "CRUDE" tension! I can't wait.
Or go see Speed Racer and tell me how much I missed out on while I pretend to listen.
