we went and saw funny people last night. now i knew the movie was going to be more serious than funny, and i honestly wasn't in the mood to go watch it. i didn't want to cry (i didn't)... and i was kind of wanting something a little more light hearted. but the guys wanted to see it, so before i had even been in the house for 5 minutes after getting off of work, we were out the door. being rushed like that apparently doesn't put me in the best of moods. i.was.a.bitch.
seeing this movie made me even bitchier.
i'm not entirely sure what it was about this movie... but it put me in a worse mood. it wasn't horrible, don't get me wrong. it just wasn't uplifting or super happy either. the funniest part? the guys and i took completely different things away from the movie. where they saw the ex-girlfriend as someone who went completely crazy, i saw her as someone who was about to change her entire life for a man she thought truly loved her, and in doing that she was planning ahead. sure it might have sounded crazy and scary, but if it was real life, it would have been realistic. they didn't think it was depressing or sad... i thought it was both of those things. they seemed to appreciate it in a way that i didn't. maybe this movie appeals to men in a different way than it does to women? i don't know.. there was some very clever writing & i appreciated all of the entertainment/hollywood/being in the business stuff. and i definitely laughed out loud more than once. i just think it was too long... and the "point" of the movie wasn't really driven home. i simply didn't care enough about adam sandler's character.
maybe this is where i'm just a total fucking girl (or just me), because i pretty much can't get passed all the cheating elements in this movie. i keep hearing this line from the movie repeating itself inside my head, although i can't remember the exact quote. the jist was- "it's easy to say you wouldn't cheat when you don't have anyone wanting to fuck you." probably because i TOTALLY agree with it. it's one thing to say you'd "never" cheat, but how the fuck do you know? have you ever been in a situation where it's realistically come up and you've had the balls and the right mind to turn it down? to say no? have you been able to walk away from those moments that ruin/change your life forever? i mean.. none of us know what we would do, until we are in that situation. it's easy to say you'd never do something, when the temptation of that something isn't throwing itself at you at every turn. or hell, hasn't ever thrown itself at you. what would you do if the opportunity was there? and it truly tempted you? then what...
welcome to my mood today... isn't this fun?
