Last night I watched a movie that netflix thought I’d rate “4.2” – that’d be pretty dang high. What did I give it? maybe a 1.5. It was SO boring that I made all my class kits for this weekend during it. Seriously after watching this movie I think I should write screenplays… because mine would kick the crap out of this pile.
Jennifer Aniston was the same character she always is, and Gerard Butler… well this is the 2and movie I can think of that I saw him in and I just don’t get it. If I saw him in my gym I wouldn’t glance twice. Not eye candy. The plot of this gem was so beyond garbage… blech. AWFUL movie. This is why I’m so glad I was so productive during my viewing – I don’t have to ask for my ninety minutes back.
Speaking of bounty hunters, I live in a house of Dog the Bounty Hunter fans. The music comes on, they love it. All 3 of them.
I admit it’s entertaining… but I would be fine if it never aired again. Know what I mean? I just don’t like much TV, yet I can’t NOT watch Beth & the crew if it’s on and I’m in the room.
I AM a fan of the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich (well, up until about #13) and I was very excited to see that there is a movie finally being filmed based on the first book. Will it be great? Will it go down in AWFUL flames like other book to movies (Shopaholic, comes to mind)… only time will tell us that. I just saw this picture on her facebook page…
Above you see Katherine Heigl dressed (on set?) for her part as Stephanie Plum. I know there are a lot of haters out there – but I think she could pull it off. My only groan-tastic rant about this bounty hunter from Jersey book turned movie is this: fans who won’t zip it with who they ‘saw’ playing the parts in the already cast and now filming movie. Get over it. It’s a pet peeve of mine when I hear people whine about “we should have gotten ___ to do ____” when they aren’t industry insiders and/or aren’t thinking about how it works. Gahhhh.
This is who we got, I’m going to be optimistic about it… and good or bad I will probably be there opening night… in a year or two or whenever it actually hits theaters. That is, assuming Gerard Butler is nowhere near this (though I must admit he didn’t bug me in Ugly Truth with Heigl. Oh nevermind.) There we go – that’s my ringing endorsement for One for the Money (Stephanie Plum flick) – “at least it’s not Jen Aniston pretending to be a Jersey girl bounty hunter!”
*end of bounty hunting rant*
Ps: Fun fact did you know Ms. Heigl was the star in that classic 90’s flick My father the Hero?!?! I realized that and re-rented it… and wretched. What an awful movie. Why did I watch it like 1000x as a young teen? Oh right, I wanted to be on a tropical island and have a super hot guy fall for me… instead of being the horribly awkward, zero confidence and fashion sense geek I was.
*end typing now I promise*
