The #1 Reason You Should Rent Bachelorette Tonight + This Week’s Terrible Date Moviesby Lindsey Weber and Bobby Finger on September 07, 2012
Lindsey: Hey Bobby
Bobby: How was your week?
Lindsey: It was pretty great, I was on Cape Cod with no internet, so I watched Going The Distance a few times.
Bobby: I did, too! Always great. So underrated. I guess. Maybe it’s not. Maybe people love it.
Lindsey: I think we THINK it’s underrated and it’s actually not. We want an underdog, when probably, it did pretty well. I just wanna be UNDER Justin Long—–GOT EMMMM.
Bobby: HA. Ew. I guess you’re a Mac girl. Any movie plans this weekend? Hot date? Date movie suggestion? Craving for butter flavoring on popcorn?
Lindsey: If you count seeing Sparkle (late!) with a few friends, yes I have a hot date. But I doubt I’ll get any action from Ghost Whitney and her crew, so moving on.
Bobby: What a coincidence. I’m seeing Sparkle (late!) with a few friends, too. But yes. What is coming out THIS week?
Lindsey: Hm, I heard that Bridesmaids knock-off Bachelorette is coming out. Another movie that’ll make me not want to get married? How romantic!
Bobby: Oh right. It’s in theaters now. You can still get it on demand at home, though. Cheaper option. Oh AND [REC] 3 because for some reason [REC] needed a second sequel. I hated the first! So. That’s a nope.
Lindsey: Yow saw REC? How was REC not The Ring? Was REC also about a scary VHS tape?
Bobby: Well, I mean kind of. Essentially yes. It was a found footage movie. I heard from people that REC was “one of those ACTUALLY SCARY” horror movies. But it was not.
Lindsey: Hey, peoples’ views on ‘scary’ tend to differ. I thought She’s All That was scary
Bobby: Yeah, you’re right. But the reviews are a nightmare and I think it’d be best if you and your date weren’t bored during a horror movie. There’s nothing worse than a movie desperate for a scare. Or a laugh, for that matter. The Words came out too.
Lindsey: Who’s in that again?
Bobby: Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper. That gets a nope right after the plot summary: ”…the layered romantic drama The Words follows young writer Rory Jansen who finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel…” Bradley Cooper as a struggling-turned-successful writer? No thanks!
Lindsey: What’s a layered romantic drama going to do FOR ME.
Bobby: Nothing. It’s going to nothing for either of us. Poor Zoe though. She deserves better. What are you thoughts on Bradley Cooper? Just, you know, as an aside. I’m curious. I despise him for some reason. That same inexplicable hatred I have for, like, Chris Messina and Chloe Moretz.
Lindsey: I don’t like him THAT much, but I did like Limitless? You despise him? That’s kind of random of you, Bob. He seems like a pretty chill guy to me. And Hangover (THE FIRST ONE) wasn’t too bad. (Justin Long is in it.)
Bobby: OH I HATED THE HANGOVER SO MUCH. THAT DESERVES ITS OWN CHAT.
Lindsey: Oh relax.
Bobby: SORRY NOW I’M RILED UP.
Lindsey: It was fine.
Bobby: OK moving on. So what’s the selection? What’s the best date movie of the week?
Lindsey: I vote that you stay home and rent Bachelorette on demand. Because if it sucks, and it will, you’ll have much easier access to just give up and have sex.
Bobby: Good call.
