    Default I'm starting to feel really bad for Sarah Marshall

    Know what I'm saying? Somebody's mad at her. The best one I saw today was "Sarah Marshall, my mother's always hated you."

    Who is Sarah Marshall?

    whoever thought up the idea "romantic comedy that alienates women and appeals to misogyinistic guys" is probably not employable in any other industry.

    Actually it is interesting twist, get the people that romantic comedies to watch one. And the movie has yet to come out so you don't know if it is anti women.

    the standard romantic comedy formula is:

    - near perfect, rational, 'got her shit together' woman
    - meets loser but goodlooking guy who gives a bad first impression
    - guy makes a mess of things trying to get close to woman
    - woman remains rational, at first finds guy's foibles annoying, which gradually turns to endearing
    - woman dates guy
    - some sort of speedbump, which the eventually overcome, woman remaining rational the whole time, guy moping like a fucktard
    - they move in or get married or something

    The reason that romantic comdedies almost always protray women as the rational. level-headed half of a relationship and guys as clumsy, sex-obsessed oafs is that it plays right to the egos of the target demographic.

    This new movie appears to want to turn that notion around. If that is in fact the case, I predict a dismal box office.

    I agree except for your prediction at the end, it might be good because it is the oppisite, where the guy is level headed, and the woman is batshit crazy. Formulas work for a reason but they need to be broken every now and then.

    I'm betting there's a rational, level-headed, 'keep it real' woman in this movie somewhere. that winds up being the heroine. not sarah marshall. that's the only thing that makes any sense.

    I know a few people who would. I do see your point that it is targeting a different demographic than usual, but it Judd Aptow and his movies do good at the box office, and people who like his type of movies will probably go to this one.

    I bet that's it too. I went to the web site and it's a fake blog with the dude from the movie talking shit about Sarah Marshall. I don't think this is going to be a rational guy. I bet he ends up with some rational chick, probably a friend that he's overlooked for years, who puts up with this guys obsessive antics the whole movie. Stupid.

    And yet, having rational, 'keep it real' women in Knocked Up didn't stop people from leveling charges of sexism against it.

    I know that lately Judd Apatow's been getting shit about all his movies being sexist... So is this his big payback for that?

    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Yeah, it seems like I saw this trailer a couple months ago. I don't remember anything about it except it has yet another of the Freaks from Freaks and Geeks, and both my wife and I laughed.

    I'm sure it will be worth a laugh on Showtime or whatever. There are worse things to rip on.

    I don't know, that "Music and Lyrics" had Drew Barrymore as the confused psychological mess, and Hugh Grant was pretty comfortable and happy with being a semi-shallow, basically nice, has-been.

    The romance part of that movie was unbelievable and idiotic, but I kind of enjoyed the comedy part, and I thought it had some interesting things to say about how pop music affects our lives.
