What I've Watched Lately...

The 'friends with benefits' themed movie with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman.

I hadn't seen Natalie Portman in a movie since Where the Heart is (from 2000) which is a movie I love and can't believe I don't own. But 'No Strings Attached'... well, it was entertaining enough. Near the end I was more excited for bed. Obviously watching it we all know how it ends. There is nothing about the ending that was even a little unpredictable. The middle dragged on a little, and the end dragged on a lot. Still a decent enough movie, just one I wouldn't bother watching again anytime soon. Some parts are pretty funny.

Starring Kristen Wiig, who I find really pretty, but have never heard of, as well as the rest of the cast. Except for Melissa McCarthy (Sookie from Gilmore Girls!) who plays a really awkward, crude, kind of manly character. Well, to explain more, here's a quote from her in the movie:
Megan: This is some classy sh-...
Megan: I want to apologize. I'm not even confident on which end that came out of.

I had no idea what I was getting into before watching this movie. I heard it was good, but besides that I had never heard of it.
From IMDB: "Picked as her best friend's maid of honor, lovelorn and broke Annie looks to bluff her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals with an oddball group of bridesmaids."
It's a movie I would definitely buy and re-watch. There are some slower points of the movie, but mostly it's really funny. You could tell there were a lot of above middle-aged women there, because the laughter in the theater was always a bit louder and longer than what it should've been, with some hooting-laughter. I just wanted to yell out "It's puking, it's not that funny!"

But yeah, it is pretty funny. I recommend you watch this one. The humor kind of reminds me of Little Miss Sunshine, if you've seen that. It's even got some man-approved humor... you know with bodily functions. Sometimes a little too much. But still good.

I loved Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids!

And another thing I liked about that movie is that it's more than just raunchy humour, it's about being a complete screw up and totally falling apart, only to come back together. Or that's what I saw anyway, I could be completely crazy, hah.

I've heard Bridesmaids is pretty awesome. Never had a desire to see the other one.
