I rented Valentine’s Day at the suggestion of a friend. Well actually the suggestion was to rent a sappy, romantic movie so I could see what it looks like to have that riveting, gotta-have-you love. The Notebook was the actual suggestion. Whether this fits that same bill or not, time will tell. Anyway, I doubt that it will because I am now laughing hysterically at the ridiculousness that’s before me. I don’t know that I’d suggest renting it at this point, but if you did, you’d laugh too. Maybe it’ll finish with a strong heart-warming love scene and I’ll get the hint.
Or perhaps the lack of riveting, gotta-have-you love will speak just as loudly:
“Did you even consider marrying me?”
“Of course I did. But when you ask a girl to marry you, do you want her to just consider it or do you want her to just know?”
Side note: Julia Roberts has a beautiful, captivating laugh. I could listen to her laugh all day. Is that weird?
We’re all taught from a young age that things work out. If things don’t work out, we’re told “It’s okay. It wasn’t meant to be. Things will work out.” Buuut…they’re not working out when we’re told that. Does that seem misleading to anyone else?
I’m pretty sure I’m focusing on the wrong things in this romance movie. This is why I need to stick to comedies!
Just some thoughts. Take or leave ’em; they’re only worth a penny 😉
“Spent her whole life being graded on the sanctity of patience and a dumb appreciation but the story needs some mending and a better happy ending – ’cause I don’t want the next best thing.”
