Tonight! The Boy Next Door!
Sarah was all pissy about it yesterday when we were texting. Her words: “It is sh-t”.
Joanna saw it last night at an advance screening. Her review will be posted later but she emailed me this morning with the following:
“You're going to LOVE IT. It's ridiculous. Why don't they make movies like this anymore???? The sex is GREAT, the movie's not... but it's bad on purpose. Would still recommend. ... Just expect to roll your eyes and laugh. A lot.”
I will. I know I will. I can’t wait.

Speaking of sex at the movies. Lainey’s all het up for The Boy Next Door, I’m just relieved I don’t have to sit through it. No amount of top-notch fake f*cking can make up for a poorly made movie, sorry. Like I told Lainey last night, all commercials for The Boy Next Door make me want to do is watch Out of Sight.

It’s Friday, which means if you’re anything like me you’re staring at the clock on your computer monitor, trying to will time forward with your mind.

The Boy Next Door is Jennifer Lopez’s first film in two years. With more laughs and (way) more steam than in the trailer, you should give it a shot even though its great foreplay and racy sex don’t result in satisfying finish. Still, where else would you hear lines like, "Dude, you've got to read The Iliad" coming from a man who's "nearly 20"? JLO plays Claire, a separated high school classics teacher and mom to a sensitive teenage boy who's allergic to bees. Full Story

Have you read The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins yet? Are you reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins? It’s the hot book of the season. It’s the most disciplined I’ve had to be about a book in a long time. And it’s so f-cking hard to be disciplined about this book. To only take it 20 pages or so at once because the rest of life won’t leave me alone.
Since I’ve not finished, I can’t tell you what I think of it. But I can tell you that I can understand why everyone’s talking about it. So far, the pacing is brilliant. It’s commercial fiction at its best. And this is saying something because you’re in the head of a person who is a mess, you could say an intolerable mess. Still, Hawkins lures you along.
That’s what it is, isn’t it? A luring?
Great writing is a lure, sometimes a terrible one. Read Full Intro

Jude Law stepped out last night at the NY premiere of Black Sea. He looks good. Very handsome. Just… I can’t figure out what’s going on with his hair. Like, there’s so much of it… but not that much of it… you know what I mean? Look at the length of that ringlet! If you stretched it out, how long would it be? Is that a compensation? I don’t understand. Full Story
