Why Didn't You Tell Me?

Or maybe I missed it.

I just lost one hour and forty minutes of my life that I can never get back.

I just watched Knocked Up.

Sure there were some funny lines, but really?

Katherine Heigl and that curly-haired dude had NO chemistry. And the woman who played the sister? Oh and Paul Rudd. Paul Rudd. What happened? Did Hollywood run out of cute boyfriend roles for you? You're stuck playing the dopey husband now?

I know I'm late to the party with this review, but give me a break. I don't get out to the movies much right now. And thank the goddess of discount boutique shoes, because holychristonacracker this movie would have been a GIANT waste of my money.

The great part about all of it though? My husband sat and wasted his whole evening with me watching it. And we ordered in dinner. It was a veritable date night on a Tuesday.

And last night I was compelled to sweep the floor before I went to bed.

Yep, the devil's shopping for a parka.

Thanks be to the Goddess! There is someone else who thought this movie sucked. I thought I was the only one. It was so ridiculously hyped and everyone I talked to thought it was SO! FUNNY! and when I finished watching it, I just stared and the screen and thought, "Really? That was it?"

Have you seen Little Children? I watched it this weekend and was incredibly impressed. Loved it. It was strange, disturbing, sometimes sort of funny (in a black comedy kind of way), and original. Way, way better than Knocked Up.

What happened to comedy? The only comedy I can remember enjoying in the recent past was Borat. Thank God for The Office and 30 Rock on TV or I may forget how to laugh.

Oh, longest comment. Ever.

Finally!!! Someone else who thought it was a blah, waste of time. I agree. It had some funny one-liners, but I remember thinking, "Is this feckin' movie over yet?"

The only saving grace was the commentary about the guy who was growing his hair "okay, Mr. Late John Lennon," etc. Since then, I keep seeing him (the former Cat Stevens, et al) EVERYWHERE!

I actually couldn't bring myself to see that movie, and this confirms that I am not wasting the time.

Next Tuesday, come to Happy Hour with us!

Good to know. It's sitting here on my counter from Netflix. I won't waste my time.

Maybe it is because I am currently pregnant but I laughed my ass off during some parts of this movie. Must be the hormones.

It wasn't very good, I agree. But DO see 40 Year Old Virgin--same producer, I think. THAT is one hysterical little film.

Oh yeah. Horrible awful no good yuka pooey movie.

That sister? She was like nails on a chalkboard. And that chubby guy wasn't funny he was just gross. And not funny gross, just gross gross. As were all his creepy Peter Pan like friends.

Thumbs firmly down on that one.

Never seen it but felt the same way about Mr. Brooks (oy fucking vey). To think someone in Hollywood went and said 'this shit is brilliant' before sending it out to the theatres. I think there should be an optional refund option when a movie sucks. It's bad enough you lost a fraction of your life. Do I really have to pay for said loss???

I frequently send up prayers and thanks to the goddess of discount boutique shoes.
