Yesterday I had to confess to my good friend and film lover/writer/major Ben that B and I have an embarrassing desire to see the new movie The Hangover. My reasons for wanting to see it are very complicated and they go something like this: I have a huge crush on Bradley Cooper. Ed Helms, who plays Andy on The Office, really cracks me up.
Until I actually Googled the movie and watched the trailer, I basically didn't even know what the movie was about. After watching the trailer I can see how someone who doesn't have a crush on Bradley Cooper - AKA: My husband - would also want to see it. I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't expect it to be "good" per se, and it's weird that I even want to see it because B and I average one movie in the theater per year, so why it would be this one, I can't explain.
So once I started my Google search it led to related Googling, as is often the case, and I ran across this spoof video. Last February the movie He's Just Not That Into You came out, and in a ploy to get men to agree to see the movie with their girlfriends the three leading men of the movie made a video detailing the 10 cliches usually seen in chick flicks that are NOT in the movie. And while I definitely enjoy a good chick flick from time to time, I agree that the a LOT of the horrible cliches (spontaneous dance scene, anyone?) need to go.
So for the chick flick lovers out there, here's a funny spoof video for you...
