Okay, “Barney’s Version” is not a traditional chick flick. But I’m a chick (and it co-stars three chicks). It’s a flick. And I loved this movie with every fiber of my being.
Q&A QUESTIONS FOR ROSAMUND PIKE IN MY PHONE
HE BELIEVES IT IS LOVE AT FIRST SITE
HE IS A STALKER: FOLLOWING HER TO HER TRAIN ON HIS WEDDING NIGHT, SENDING HER FLOWERS NONSTOP, REFUSING TO STOP WHEN SHE ASKS HIM, HE BARFS ON THEIR FIRST DATE AND PASSES OUT DRUNK
UNCLEAR WHY SHE CHOOSES HIM – I GUESS SHE SEES THE ROMANTIC INSIDE AND IS STILL REELING FROM HER FATHER’S CHEATING AS A CHILD
HE’S NOT EXACTLY A BAD HUSBAND – DEVOTED AND SWEET AT TIMES, BUT AN ALCOHOLIC WHO PRIORITIZED DRINKING NIGHTS OUT AND SPORTS MATCHES OVER SUPPORTING HER ACCOMPLISHMENTS, ALSO DISCOURAGES HER FROM GOING BACK TO WORK AFTER THE KIDS ARE BORN (THOUGH THAT MAY BE A FUCNTION OF THE TIMES)
HE’S A SELF-DESTRUCTIVE CHARACTER, SELF-LOATHING FOR RUNNING A PRODUCTINO COMPANY THAT DOES A SOAP OPERA, THE DRINKING, GIVING MONEY TO HIS ARTIST FRIENDS WHO IN SOME CASES DON’T HAVE MUCH TO SHOW FOR IT, HIS BEST FRIEND IS A COCAINE ADDICT, MARRIES RACHELLE LEFEVRE ONLY BECAUSE SHE’S PREGNANT, MARRIES MINNIE DRIVER ONLY BECAUSE SHE’S PRETTY

Gaining weight often makes women better dancers because they have something to shake, if you know what we mean. Case in point: Belly dancers — and a London ballet company couldnâ€™t agree more. Balletlorent is looking for 12 pregnant women to join the cast of their next production â€œMaEternal.â€ The Artistic Director, Liv Lorent, who is pregnant herself, says, â€œYou can’t get a 25-year-old size 8 ballet dancer type body to move with the weight, the gravitas or the sheer cheerful spirit a pregnant woman.â€ So although no dance experience is necessary, you better bring it to the audition because there might be a lot of celeb competition with everyone, from Jessica Alba to Minnie Driver, being knocked up.
