SO Brian and I watched quite a few movies this weekend since I was bed/couch-ridden. We made pretty decent picks for the most part, but one of MY choices turned out to be a TOTALLY bad one. I picked that Ben Stiller comedy "The Heartbreak Kid" where he gets married to this awesome chick and then after their wedding she turns out to be a total nutcase. NOT GOOD.
Um... I am basically just completely sick of movies that look soooo cute and innocent and funny and light-hearted in the previews and then turn out to be terrible! I guess I just never pay attention to the rating anymore, but that has changed my friends. I am officially boycotting "R" rated comedies. The last THREE that I have wanted to see were terrible!! Well, I never actually watched two of them, but I heard enough about them to know that I would NOT have liked them.
1. Knocked Up: the previews looked soooo cute! And hilarious. And all I heard was how terrible the language was and how inappropriate it was. I watched the first 15 minutes and I was donesky.
2. Good Luck Chuck: same as above. It looked like it had major potential for cute entertainment... my few friends who saw it informed me otherwise. I kind of hate the "F" word, and for some reason I guess it's not possible to make a movie without WAYYY overusing that term.
3. The Heartbreak Kid: ok, seriously just NOT good at all. COmpletely ridiculous plot...NOT even very funny, raunchy, bad language, just...dumb/gross.
So...I'm done with the "R" rated comedies.
Oh, and in lou of recent events in the Celebrity World... for some reason Heath Ledger's death has made me really sad. So...say a prayer for his little baby girl :( and for the family he left behind. No parent should have to watch their child die before they do :(
