Uber chick flick?

05.11.2009

The New York Times has an article this morning on something very disturbing. No, not Quentin Tarantino's ego, but something that can only be described as THE UBER CHICK FLICK. Apparently pleased to punch with the success of the ensemble romantic comedy HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU, New Line is developing a new, more powerful, romantic comedy. Think of NOT THAT INTO YOU as Weapon X and they're working to develop a Weapon XI. Enter VALENTINE'S DAY. A movie spawned off a release date (Valentine's Day is on a Sunday in 2010 and could spawn a huge opening weekend off a Friday release), it would be directed by Garry Marshall (PRETTY WOMAN) and assuming all negotiations proceed without a hitch would star (get this): Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel and Shirley MacLaine. Somewhere a Lifetime network executive is having a heart attack.

Marshall says that Ashton Kutcher and Bradley Cooper are in talks to join the film as well (somewhat odd for Cooper who also starred in NOT THAT INTO YOU) as the male leads. If Matthew McConaughey comes anywhere near this thing we might hit DEFCON 1. As far as the plot goes, it's exactly what you would think. A bunch of pretty Los Angeleans struggle with love. Crying, kissing, flowers, chasing, calling, smiling, winking, laughing, swooning and pratfalls all ensue.

Extra Tidbit: God help us all.

Believe it or not...

...but I've never been forced to see a chick flick. Every girl I've gone out with has chosen to see this type of dreck...er, film with her friends. Makes sense, no?

Sorry Stevemoto but this is one girl that will NOT be going to this flick. If anything my MAN will have me watch it on cable.."Hey honey, this is pretty funny". I am with the only guy in the world to like chick flicks...**sigh***

Perfect example of a...

leave-your-testicles at the door flick. This is worse than any torture the Bush Administration could have thought up!

Well it does sound about right...the girls will drag their guys to see this Uber Chick Flick, and the guys will get their revenge and drag them to the Expendables (The Uber Guy Flick).

The only way that Chick Flick could reach WMD's would be if they added Richard Gere and Fabio.

what worries me

What worries me is your comparison to Weapon X. Despite, or because of, having so many powers in Weapon XI, Weapon X (Wolverine) is superior to Weapon XI. This worries me because that would mean HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU is the superior movie?

Okay, didn't see "He's Just Not That Into You." Don't really care to. A little disappointed they didn't release it Valentines Weekend, since I'm a big believer in honoring the holidays (like give me a Halloween movie not "Saw" on Halloween).

Love the actresses involved, but way too many big names. Like Bradley Cooper and I don't care what he's in. If McCounaghey DOES decide to be in this, it's probably a step up from the dreck he's doing in so-called rom-coms.

But, and I cannot stress

But, and I cannot stress this enough, I cannot -- and refuse to -- get what the reason is Ashton Kutcher is an A-list talent. The man should've gone the way of Chris Klein (who's better at playing smart people) but instead he made himself something resembling a movie star. Is it that he's injected himself into the life of Bruce Willis by marrying the mother of his children? Cuz that might actually say a lot.

I could be wrong, but isn't this trend based more upon the success of Love, Actually?

Why don't they ever talk about this when discussions of the Apocalypse take place?

Because they don't want to scare us.
