The Unbearable Kate-ness of Movies

It would seem that every year, Kate Hudson comes out with a movie that is unbearable to watch.  And I go to watch them in the theater.  This year, it's going to be Something Borrowed.  Or as my friend I'm going to go see it with calls it, "you know, that one with the blonde and the brunette, and that guy you like from The Office."  (Crystal, you might have said John Krasinski by name, I can't remember.)

For those of you who don't know, Something Borrowed is about a lawyer-friend (Ginnifer Goodwin) who doesn't have self-confidence so she never stands up to her "best friend" (Kate Hudson) about how she's stolen everything out from under her all of her life - most recently Kate's fiance.*  Oh, but don't worry.  Where we start, all we do is see Ginny get her groove back and steal Kate's fiance.  Yes, he's a chess piece, guys.  In 3rd grade, he'd be that glitter bracelet I let [X cheerleader, NS] borrow, and when I asked for it back, she said "ok, but then we won't be friends anymore."  (To which I said, "ok, can I have it back then?")

While talking to another friend about it, she just didn't understand why these people would be friends and treat each other so poorly.  (Score for being a better friend than them, Sarah!)  Or how you could be about to marry someone that's so horrible and KNOW it.  My only answer is that I kinda think that's more common in life than you'd think.  People don't stand up for themselves, girls and guys alike stay together and get married because they've been together so long, and "best friends" are sometimes the people that hurt you the most.  (Not mine, of course.)

On that happy note, I guess go see a horrible movie with Kate Hudson in it.  Or the terrorists win.

*Note: I really don't know how they got John Krasinski to be in this movie, and I think they are promoting him being in it because he's the only likable character.  Ok, so I read the book, what of it?

  1. I didn't say his name!

    I love, in movies, when it's like "well, I've made up my mind, I love you" and the other person is all "oh okay" like they have no say in it at all.
