The writing team that brought you Leap Year are now adapting Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

01.28.2011

Okay so, I can't be mean towards the writing/directing duo of Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan. They brought me three movies I enjoy: CAN'T HARDLY WAIT, THE BRADY BUNCH and A VERY BRADY SEQUEL.

However, I don't know if I can get behind an adaptation of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Everyone knows about the best-selling book from John Gray. The basic idea behind the book was to help men and women understand the non-understandables of the opposite sex. Then in turn, they use this knowledge to better communicate with one another. "Why do men think about breasts all the time?" Because they are programed that way, shut up and get used to it.

Elfont and Kaplan will write and direct the adaptation which they are turning into a rom-com. The last film the duo did together was LEAP YEAR with Amy Adams and Matthew Goode.

I'd ask you what you think about this project but I can probably guess. Maybe we'll get one positive comment. Although it probably won't be about this. Any CAN'T HARDLY WAIT fans out there?

Extra Tidbit: "OK, from now on we're alternating Cindy Crawford's "Aerobicise" and "Buns of Steel", and reading one non-school book a week. My first book is 'Fit or Fat'." "Mine is 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus'."

What the...

fuck is this shit? This is going to be an awful movie based on a shitty book that a barely qualified pop psycologist wrote to make money. Hope the douche that came up with this dumb-ass idea dies.

Let me guess, it will be an ensemble romantic comedy starring up and comers and Ashton Kutcher, all of whom are either trying to deal with a romance or are in a relationship that's difficult. Oh the hilarity!

Leap Year was a lot better than a lot of the crap that came out last year, like Letters to Juliet and When in Rome. Amy Adams can make almost anything likable, though, so maybe it was all because of her.

My ex wanted to write me off as a closeted homosexual when I told her I really like and own Josie and the Pussycats. Ps, do these chaps make my butt look fat?

Straight as I am I too love that film. I even have the soundtrack. "Holy sh**, that girl's got a skunk on her head!"

I'm both a Can't Hardly Wait and Brady Bunch Movie fan. Glad you gave those movies props in the article. I'd rather hese two writers did a movie I'd like to see instead of these really lame rom com's.
