Three DVDs were up for grabs to those arguing for or against the legitimacy of the TomKat union. The winning entries below:
Rob in Miami, Florida
– selected for involving Disney in his debate
No I think the wedding is nothing but blowing smoke up the mini van crowds asses. From day one, it has been nothing but one big fairy tale wedding. From his jumping on Oprah"s couch to proposing at the top of the Eiffel Tower to the fake wedding in Italy. If your truly in love with somebody and you want to spend the rest of your life with that person, why do you care what the rest of the world thinks about it? It doesn"t matter. And its not like the more money you spend on this mirage is going to make it seem that more happy. As far as I am concerned it would have been more believable if they held it at the Magic Kingdom Castle and Goofy and the Wicked Witch were the best man and woman. That would have made more sense to me than what they did.
Tamsin in Toronto
– selected for actually writing a poem (abridged here):
Are Tom and Katie for reals?/Gee, how could that be?/Katie"s got an Asian baby/And Tom"s dreamin" of Beck"s wee-wee.
Their wedding was a church convention/Even Oprah was absentee/They served Rossum and starved poor JLo/And danced with Dlisters like Jenna and Bodhi!
Tom"s as straight as Travolta"s broken arrow/You don"t need a gossip PHD/Subscribing to the TomKat gong show/Violates Lainey decree!
So enough of People and Life and Style/And stories of Top Gun singing on one knee/There are two Mrs. Cruises sailing on that ship!/Please send me You, Me, and Dupree!
Leigh in Atlanta
– selected for her sweet Southern optimism
Even though cheesy love is not the most endearing kind (the Top Gun song? Really??), by God it does happen. Granted, the people that fall into cheesy love are not always the smartest, but they are oft the most pretty. Just because their wooing was lame and full of cheese does not discount the fact it is real. Tommy may not be the most sincere, or sane, but he does seem the type to fall for a Katie-young, low-key, stunning. The perfect girl for him to drown in his overarching affection. We may not see them as a "perfect" example of love, but it should fall into the cheesy brand that can often last as long as the real thing. And, finally, the most important detail that proves it has to be real: a hot young starlet like Katie wouldn"t throw away the movie roles, the Oscar buzz she could"ve had, to sit, in true minivan-majority style, at the soccer field and cheer on children she has no biological connection to UNLESS she was in love (love Conner, but am sure he is no Beckham). Her career and her bank account did not need the GMD and only her giggly, pre-teen, top gun lovin" hormones could propel her into this marriage.
Thanks to all of you who entered, You, Me and Dupree is out on DVD right now – more contests on the way!
