    Just watched The Wedding Crashers, and I'm glad it was loaned to me by a friend I work with. A much younger friend, who told me it was hilarious. Well... no it isn't. Just more inane garbage from hollywierd in a boy gets girl story. It was tiresome to get through, and made for the simple minded.

    Thanks for the heads-up. It looks pretty inane. After watching stuff like this, I often have the thought, "I wish I could have those two hours back".

    There was maybe three places where I actually grinned, and they tried to make the ending all warm and fuzzy because he finaly gets the girl. Other than that, it was all sophmoric, typical, nothing new, rehashed, less than funny nonsense.

    Hey Pale, have you seen Fight Club or Snatch?

    That inspires a mama joke.

    Yo mama's so dumb, she thinks "Snatch" is a sequel to the "Vagina Monologues".

    Indeed it was.

    I did see the movie, mildly funny and rather ridicules, but that is what it was supposed to be. The gay son was quite the distraction, it does seem that is always being interjected in to movie stories. But on whole the movie was just what it was supposed to be, sophmoric humor for a few hours.

    Nope. Never even heard of Snatch. Fight Club... well... I'm not a Brad Pit fan.

    Don't like Brad Pitt for his politics? I don't know why you don't like him, but it might be worth checking out if you thought you could stomach watching him...

    Then again, I should be upfront and say it's not a family movie. There's a lot of violence, and it's definitely got a dark theme to it. Part of me thinks you'd like it, part of me thinks you'd hate it. I guess I don't know you well enough.

    I think you might like Snatch, though. The next time you rent a video, give it a shot...

    oh wait, Brad Pitt's in that one as well.

    I tried! If I think of any other movies, I'll post 'em here.
