Katherine Heigl attains immortality in The Age of Adaline

May. 13, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Because she's surely going to need to wash the stink of KILLERS off herself when that film debuts, Katherine Heigl is trying to approach romance from a classier angle in THE AGE OF ADALINE.

Heigl will play a woman in the 1900s who is made immortal by some sort of accident, and goes through life lonely until she meets a man that she might consider going mortal for, which is apparently part of the accident, or curse, or however the hell the whole eternal life thing happened in the first place.

No, this doesn’t sound terribly original, but I am impressed to a certain degree it’s not based on anything like a book or old movie or board game. I’m not the biggest fan of Heigl (she’s rubbed me the wrong way ever since her bitchy comments about KNOCKED UP being sexist), but who knows, it could be worthwhile and she is pretty damn hot. Whoops is that sexist?

No? Then how about this:

SUCH TALENT!

Extra Tidbit: I feel like Heigl's the type of celebrity who would find this article and write me an eloquent e-mail about what an asshole I am.

she sucks

I mean look at her track record, failures everywhere. She is hot but talentless and to SoundGirl that is exactly how all women act, what a woman be jealous of another and call her means names, a wife complaining about her husband, unheard of, pregnant women being nervous, crazy!!! Im so shocked.

This sounds ok.

As for the bitchy thing.. She's sortof right about the sexist thing. Almost all female characters in the film come off as shrews. The mom boils down to a scene of her saying "Get out now! Have an abortion!", the coworker lady is jealous of Heigle every time we see her, the sister is constantly complaining about her husband, and Heigle spends most of the film in one giant pregnancy panic. The only exception is the one roommate's girlfriend.. who essentially just plays a

The movie is still funny as hell though.

It's a comedy. Every character has to be a stereotype. Which male character comes off as positive?

The jealous coworker is paired up with the boss that keeps asking Heigl to be "tighter". Rogen's character is so afraid to become a father, he doesn't have the courage to open the parenting books. All of his friends are losers who try to start a nudie site with a concept that they don't realize is already taken...

The movie tries real hard to make everyone share the blame for their failure and

The movie tries real hard to make everyone share the blame for their failure and for that, is considerably less sexist than the comedies who give no flaws to women characters but give all the funny lines to the guys!

This sounds like it could be pretty good, and as pointed out, it is at least original.

Also, I don't mind Hiegel saying what she thinks, she can have her opinion, and in the case of "Knocked Up", she's a little bit right (it should be noted, I love that movie).

I'm not really sure what you mean by that, as most of the comments below this one are in the +!

Way to be a dick for no reason!

way to be a dick with bad timing.

when this was posted someone had run down the line and gave everyone with a red box a -1.

Thought you might have deduced that. PS- just the fact that your offended by a comment that has nothing to do with you indicates you are more than willing to be a "dick for no reason". dick.

But, how is she supposed to play an over worked business go getter with a thermos glued to her hand while she tries to find love in modern day America and still tackles work like she has in every single one of her past flicks?

I miss the days when she looked like that. You seem to now hear her complaining about everything these days. I don't really care for her anymore. Plus her face is busted nowadays.

Is she wrong?


First of all, she said "a little sexist." Secondly, she's not wrong. Let's be real, "Knocked Up" is about a fat jobless loser who impregnates and gets to marry a sexy, professional commentator from E! for Pete's sake!

That may not be realist but how is that sexist?

Sexism is saying or implying something that would make every women look bad. I don't see how anyone could turn anything in KU into a prejudice...

You're right, she's not wrong, but your reasoning makes little sense.

The jobless schlep and his buddies are portrayed as the coolest of the cool, while the smart, intelligent, hardworking, and pretty business gal gets to yell a lot and act like a nagging shrew. It is a little sexist, but part of what makes the movie so good, is it knows that, and attacks the thing that causes it (the crazy hormones).

This sounds like that Fox show that got cancelled unfortuntely called "New Amsterdam". It was about the cop who was immortal and who would start turning mortal when he found the one he was destined to love forever. Damn you FOX!!!!
