I saw my mother and sister recently at which time they both informed me that the Moron Test Kitchens are their least favorite posts. And they didn’t say it like, “I love all ice cream, but vanilla is my least favorite.” It was more, “my least favorite dental procedure is the root canal.”
Whatever. So now I need a NEW weekly segment so that I don’t have to come up with an original thought every freaking day of my life to entertain my readers. Until then, HEY, I spent the day watching movies.
First – Lars and the Real Doll. Basic plot – sad and lonely dude who doesn’t like to be touched and has trouble relating in social situations orders a life-size doll off the Internet and takes her everywhere as his girlfriend.
I’m not gonna lie – I CRIED throughout this movie. I was totally moved by the kindness of his family and friends. It may have something to do with my OWN family. Let me try to show up with a life-size doll and see what happens.
Next, Ashleigh the Niece flipped over to Practical Magic (1998). You know the movie, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman play sisterly witches? Not so great, but it did have the totally awesome Aidan Quinn.
What can I say? It was watch this or clean house. I went with my gut.
Then Ashleigh and I met up with Carolyn of Coupon Cartel fame for the THIRD movie of the evening – The Ugly Truth.
Absolutely one of the worst movies I’ve seen all year. Sigh. Good-bye $18.00 dollars, it was nice knowing you. Maybe I should send my mom and my sister the bill.The Moron Test Kitchen was much cheaper.
