The Big Bore
Watched "The Bill Chill" on Bravo last night. We never saw it...it was one of those movies that Stan and I would make fun of back in the 80s when it came out--it was a movie we said we'd never see because it looked sappy and sentimental and yuppie and superficial. Well, I decided to watch it, just to see what it was like, to see if my perceptions have mellowed with age, to see if my initial assessment was miguided and harsh.
Am I glad I never rented this movie! It was worse than I could have imagined. Here's a synopsis if you never saw it: A bunch of white, middle class late 30-somethings too successful for their own good get together after a friend commits suicide. They play touch football outside at the host's country estate and have sex with eachother. The end. The moral? "We have lots of money, but we're still disillusioned."
I could've used a little sentiment...a little sappiness. I thought it'd at least be a tearjerker. The only tears it jerked was the ones that come from yawning. I can't believe this movie got so much attention.
It's good to know that my perceptions as a 20-something were right-on and that I haven't mellowed with age.
Great Looking site I love it.......
