Whole lotta labia.
Regarding P.S. I Love You here's what I want to know:

How can a movie that features Gerry Butler's shirtless chest, Gina Gershon's lips, James Marsters's actual accent, and Pa Winchester's naked ass (allegedly) be as soul-grindingly dull as that one was. I think they had to actually WORK at it.

Your Snarkass Movie Review says: If Gerry's not on screen watch it with the volume off like a Britney Spears video.

Seriously, for Christmas I'm taking up a donation and we're going to get Gerry a new agent because his SUCKS. How is it that a man who has made that many movies has managed to make only TWO that I will watch with the sound on?

sheesh.

Nah. Because the answer is that he's not a terribly good actor. He's just awful pretty and some roles showcase him better but he'll never be fantastic. Just more or less watchable depending on the role. Me? I'm ok with that. I have a mute button and a freeze-frame button and my life is complete. (Also, Hillary Swank can suck the joy out of a movie faster than a Dyson.)

Yeah, Steve mentioned that she should have stopped at Karate Kid 3.

Regarding the accent. How can I put this politely?

It would appear that despite his best efforts at home defense, someone is always after his Lucky Charms.

It's ok, his was fine by comparison. I mean I'd rather have an American slipping randomly out of an Irish accent and into an English accent than poor Butler's barely constrained brogue. It looked like some of his lines actually hurt his poor mouth.

Plus, they were both either shirtless or in really well fitting jeans enough that you forgive them the aural faux pas.

I'll probably watch it again, but I'll skip sections of it. I'm fickle that way. :) Also, with a year of no Cait under my belt I'm still a little raw about losing someone so fundamental and central in your life.

However, I sent my mom to see it while it was still in the theaters and she LOVED it. So maybe it's a movie to see again with her instead of with Steve looking at me with one eyebrow cocked. :D

after having lost two grandparents in the last month, we were a little raw ourselves. i cried buckets. i also have an overactive imagination. (buckets i tell you.)

i liked that the relationships between people ... friends, mother-daughter, romances, husband-wife ... seemed very real. the conversations, etc. they had problems, no one was perfect, there were no pat answers that solved the imperfections for all of life's woes. life sucks. people are flawed. they make crappy choices sometimes.

why do i like watching movies that remind me life can suck? because i'm weird that way i suppose. heh.

but i also like totally unbelievably implausible movies like Serendipity too, so there ya go. ;)

Yeah. Um. I loved that movie. I cried buckets. In fact, I'm thinking about going to Best Buy tonight and getting a copy, despite my dislike of the Swank.

...but this from a girl whose gchat icon is from Anastasia, so my tastes are already suspect.

Is one of the watchable ones 'Dear Frankie'? I liked him in that.

Yeah, we loved it too. Largely because I could actually imagine Perrin doing something like that. I had rented it on iTunes, and then went back and actually bought it. I liked the character development. I felt like they each had some meat to them, which I could dig into. A lot of what it had to offer was what I liked about reading and analyzing plays in college. I would enjoy working up a lighting design concept for this one.

Plus, it made my cry.. only a little though (we had a friend over watching it with us, so I couldn't be as sappy as I wanted to be).
