We went to Blockbuster the other day. We left with nothing and wasted a good fifteen minutes of the day. Hundreds of movies and nothing worth seeing. My youngest daughter found a Care Bear movie but I just couldn't justify standing in line and paying $5 to rent a cartoon about bears that talk. (By the way Blockbuster, did you know you can Redbox a movie for a dollar? Pardon the word redbox as a verb.)
My oldest likes to browse through the "old movies" (you know, from the 1990's). She was trying to talk me into renting Miss Congeniality 2. I was sure we could do better than that. I remembered a delightful movie I'd hadn't see in years.
Of course, it was not in the store. Not checked out mind you, they don't even carry it in the store.
So, I borrowed a friend's copy and we watched it that night. Adorable. Delightful. Hilarious.
What happened to romantic comedies? Why don't they make them any more? Can't Hollywood make light-hearted, enjoyable movies with characters I would actually want to be friends with?
I don't need an Oscar winner. I just want a cute story about love. Is that so wrong?
I just might be forced to start seriously working on my screenplay.
