After watching How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days last night, I realized that I can never be a serious movie critic. How could I be? I sat there and watched a blatant “chick flick” about stereotypical feminine behavior – the screen filled exclusively with beautiful people – and I liked it.
OK, so it helped that I didn’t pay for it. And I thought I heard my wife say “sorry” during one of the scenes where Kate Hudson tries to drive Matthew McConaughey batty with an over-the-top mood swing. But, gosh darnit, I’m supposed to be all “the estrogen levels in the theater were excessive” and “two thumbs down for combining fart jokes with the serious problems of women in journalism.”
*sigh* I just thought it was surprisingly funny.
I guess I’ll be turning in my Blogcritics card now.
