Pickpocketing, Rude Humor And The Brilliant Lights Of Broadway

All-star cast! Critisized by the Critics! One of the weirdest comedies ever! We've GOT to see this.
Can you guess where I'm going with this? I watched Movie 43 this weekend. Ohmigod I can't even begin to describe it. Basically just: RANDOM! It was so weird I laughed the whole way through. 
The international version goes like this. Three teenager on the search for the most dangerous film in the world, and on the way there they find loads of reaaally strange little films. Some of the ''big names'' featured in this film are Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Richard Gere, Halley Berry, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Faris, Seann William Scott,  Uma Thurman, Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Gerard Butler (as a Leprichaun, ohhh yeahhhh! :D)...
The first one was a film ''starring'' Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet and it starts out as this really good blind date, romantic comedy style but then all of a sudden, he takes his scarf of and he literally has testicles hanging from his Adams apple. Kate's character is freaked out but stays polite and continues her date with him, but it turns more and more embarrassing by the minute as he dribbles some soup on them and she then has to tell him he ''has something there''.. The highlight is when a enthusiastic common friend wants to take a picture of the two of them and the testicles hang right next to her face and she is sitting there with a horrified expression on her face. This scene was so abstract and strange that the embarrassment factor of the woman was quite funny.
Not Missing Out On The Typical High School Experience?
The scene after that was a couple being over to dinner at their new neighbours and them telling them all about their son and his homeschooling. The mother in this scene is played my Naomi Watts. The parents explain that they don't want their son to miss out on a complete high school experience, so they give him exams and homework and all of that. But they also want to enable him to know what the social side of high school can be like so they haze and bully him, and also exclude him from typical high school parties in his own house. last of all the mother explains that he doesn't even have to miss out on the horribly embarrassing moment that is a first kiss. And guess who the girl is.... His mom... It is so painful to watch the build up to the actual kiss that the entire cinema was groaning in horror and disgust. There were also a couple of laughs, it was so strange no one really knew how to react. As a conclusion to this snippet, it is shown how the new neighbours meet the son who is apparently going on a date with his girlfriend and who seems like any normal teenager, so you begin to wonder if these extreme measures of education actually worked, but then he introduced his girlfriend to the neighbours and she turns out to be a puppet. I have never seen anything so strange, I think, in a film.
Those are just a few very very strange moments, I don't wanna spoil it all and also I was feeling really uninspired to write this post which is why there hasn't been one for so long!! I'm sorry this has just be laying around on my To-Do List 'cos I decided I'm not gonna stress myself for a post every week, if something comes to me... Good, if it doesn't.... What a shame.. I'm hoping to get back into a good routine this way, but I can't promise anything school's been a b*tch... Urgh, why am I lying.. PROCRASTINATION's been a b*tch!! That's the only truth there is... I got hooked onto White Collar (with Matt Bomerrrr *brow arch* :D) and then Smash and I am feeling much much more inclined to talk to you about that!!
SO, White Collar is about Neal Caffrey a convicted forger and con-man who is incredibly handsome and struck a deal with the FBI to help them on their cases in order to get out of prison... Don't worry, he still wears an anklet.. Well yeah he has a best friend who is called Mozzie, fellow white collar criminal and very, very into conspiracy theories, but a good guy at heart! I love Mozzie, he's being played by Willie Garson, who is so, so, so cuttteee I loved him in Sex And The City and I still love him now!! He might just be the most adorable, most sympathetic full time criminal I know on television!
Well yeah, it's a white collar crime series, which basically means that there's usually no murders and it makes it all a little bit more interesting, art forgery, cons and a lot of lock picking, which is what I reaaaally, really want to learn since I've been watching this, as well as pick pocketing!
I can't resist a con-man's smile and it doesn't help that love interest Sara Ellis is a beautiful redhead who I can SO identify myself with her! :DD I love Neal and the whole art thievery theme!! Art has always SO been my thing, and I might be a nerd but I think art crimes are the MOST interesting ones at alll!
Karen Cartwright and Ivy Lynn: Two Leading Ladies
And then I started watching Smash it's a Broadway musical kind of show! And well how can I NOT love it? It follows two girls going for one part in a production for a ''Marylin Musical'' there's loads of drama in the cast and crew.. Ivy is the curvy blonde with ten years of Broadway experience and then there is Karen the mid-western ''moonfaced'' freshling who is soo much nicer and I will always be rooting for her because Ivy sleeps with the director and gets the part that way! Well yes drama, drama, drama! Who could resist it? And the songs!! I was worried I wouldn't like it because with original songs it's more difficult to connect because you don't know them, but they're absolutely brilliant and there's something modern mixed in with it too!
Might talk some more about this in the future but I'm not making any promises just yet!! Happy to finally have one finished again!! Bye Byeeee
