Dude, girls cry watching American Idol. They cry. Nothing girls do even remotely shocks me at this point. A woman cut off a guys dong from jealous rage. Another woman hired some thug to bash a competitors knee so she could skate at the Olympics. Chicks like crazy shit, man. Love them for it.
OT - Sex and the City 2: Women & Terrible Taste in Entertainment
When Lee DeWyze won American Idol (yes, she watches that too), she jumped out of her seat, gave a fist pump and shouted "YES!!!! AHAHAHAHAH! Take that Bowersox!" (Bowersox was the runner-up) and did a little dance.
I have legitimately never seen a minute of that show, but facebook tells me at least a handfull of my women friends cried at the end. Seriously? I haven't cried outside of zipping up the tip since I was like 12. I mean girls. be. crazy. yo.
The show on HBO was pretty good back in the day but it ran out of steam and the movies have just been pretty useless.
No....it was never good
I liked it myself. The writing was pretty clever at times and the male-female relationship behavior was pretty realistic. I have known women and couples like the ones on the show. I like shows that show character types that you don't see anywhere else as opposed to all of the shitty predictable sitcoms out there. Good writing/characters is why HBO's series are so popular.
The only thing I'll give you credit for is coming on here of all places and not only admitting that you liked it, but explaining why.....other than that......no, that show is pure hell
Also, dude just get shit hammered before the movie. I am talking " make a scene" drunk. Fuck it, the movie theatre seats will have you passed out in 5 minutes tops.
The only issue I've ever had with being "hammered drunk" at a movie was having to use the bathroom all the time... but that was at a movie I wanted to see.
In this case however... that's a benefit
Excellent point. Nab and isle seat and use the excuse that you will fill up her soda for her because you don't want her to miss any of the movie. Win-Win, except for when you totally forget to refill the soda because you are so wasted.
Can't live with 'em, Can't Kill 'em
Set some boundaries. My wife knows I wouldn't go see shit like this (she wouldn't either), but she unfortunately likes Twilight. She asked if we could put the second Twilight movie on our Netflix queue, to which I said, "hell no". She then promised to watch it when I'm not home, so I thought that was a decent compromise.
Of course, my wife gets more excited about Michigan football games than I do, so maybe I'm just lucky.
Does this crap make anyone else physically ill?
Oh, yes. Pull the pro-feminist line on her. Tell her that seeing four obviously educated women demean themselves by reducing their existence down to a shoe-fetish makes you want to puke. Tell her that when SATC plots involve women that serve as excellent role models, you'll be happy to oblige. Ellen Ripley? AWESOME role model for women. Hot, smart, curses like a sailor, bashes Bilbo Baggins The Robot to hell, and even remembered to feed the cat....all while working as a long-haul trucker and a longshoreman in space.
I love my wife dearly, but there ain't no way in the world I could get dragged anywhere near a theater showing that crap.
I'm so glad my wife doesnt like that crap..
I sympathize. I'll be going with my fiancee tonight, as well as one of her friends and her mother. It makes me with I had about 5 vicodins to take as the movie begins.
Some good gay humor and a handful of funny lines, but it needed to be about half as long, and whoever said we're going to get blown up for this movie (BIG TIME middle eastern cultural insensitivity) is probably right. I saw it in a theater full of women and gay guys who were drinking Cosmopolitans.
It's a good thing you weren't there. You would have hated it.
