9 Crappy Messages About Love & Friendship We Learned From Watching Rom-Coms

I watched the movie “Something Borrowed” in its entirety on Sunday afternoon. I was cleaning, and dealing with a cold, and, sue me, I will probably watch anything with Ginnifer Goodwin in it if given the opportunity.

Have you seen it? Good, don’t. I’ll tell you about it instead. “Something Borrowed” stars Goodwin and Kate Hudson as Rachel and Darcy, two diametrically opposed best friends both in love with Dex (played by Colin Egglesfield and his eyebrows). Dex is Darcy’s fiancé, but he’s Rachel’s true love, and therein lies the problem. Dex and Rachel are supposed to be together and they embark on a weird physical and emotional affair and lie their faces off to Darcy about it.  Keep reading »

"I don't want a monkey, I want you."

What if “Breaking Bad” wasn’t about a megalomaniacal meth maker whose life is unraveling, but actually an unexpected love story? What if Walter White was actually in love with Jesse Pinkman? The possibility is at once so incredible and bizarre that we almost can’t handle it. I mean, everything is better when put to “Let’s Get It On,” right? Add a little fun. to the soundtrack and you’ve got an uplifting tale of forbidden romance. [YouTube]

“I’d work in a flower shop and be insecure. And he’d work in real estate. And there’s always cupcake batter on my face, and I’m like, ‘I just made these cupcakes, but I don’t know how I feel!’ And he’s like, ‘Let me get that cupcake batter off your face … with my dick.’ .. Cut to me giving him a hand job. Sorry, I’ve had too much caffeine.”

Movie Trailer Mash-Up: “Friends With No Strings Attached Benefits”


For months and months now, various blogs, including The Frisky, have pointed out the incredible similarities between the movies “No Strings Attached” (currently out on DVD) and “Friends With Benefits” (coming out July 11). Two attractive, urban twentysomething friends start having casual sex and deal with the hilarious consequences. These two films even fought over the title “Friends with Benefits,” with the Justin Timberlake/Mila Kunis vehicle winning out over Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher‘s. Well, The Blind Film Critic has proved just how much these two films have in common with this mash-up trailer. I’m a sucker for a cheesy rom-com — especially if it’s based on a classic book I am too brain-dead to read (jusssssst kiddddding!) — so even though I saw “No Strings Attached,” I’ll see “Friends With Benefits,” too, especially since Justin and Mila seem to have better chemistry.
