Poor Himself. He has been led astray yet again by would-be film fanatics. I'd say that out of the last... five films recommended to him by friends, five of them have... well...
It's hard to watch a movie with him. If it's based on history, he already knows the facts and will not hesitate to roll his eyes and growl at the screen when the script deviates from reality. If it's based on Hollywood's idea of What People Like, he will hate it.
Last night's experiment was Reservoir Dogs, touted as a Great Movie. The papers said so, various friends said so. Himself believed them and borrowed said film from the library. Hooray for free, because he hated it.
About one-third of the way through the film, Himself shut it off in disgust and announced, "Well, they shoot people and say @#$% a lot. Maybe I'll look at it some more later."
In sympathy with my dear spouse, I am announcing the Keep It Clean contest. The winner will recieve such "keeping it clean"-related prizes as I can afford to assemble. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment answering the question below. The Grand Prize will be awarded by the traditional "draw a name out of a hat" routine. A second place prize will be awarded to the entrant that submits an original film plot idea that makes Himself laugh out loud.
Entries will be accepted between now and midnight of next Thursday. And now for our question. Please choose the answer that most suits you.
