Keeping It Real
Craig and I went to a matinee on Friday and watched the gorgeous and hunkalishish Hugh Jackman in Real Steel. Side note: Craig wanted to see the robots and special effects; I went for, well, Hugh. ;-) Let's just say it was a win-win. Cute movie to be sure, and while I understand that it was rated PG, by the end of the movie my teeth hurt from the overwhelming cuteness of the little boy in the movie. He just didn't feel authentic and real to me. The robots, on the other hand, totally rocked. Contrast that to Crazy, Stupid, Love which we rented Saturday night. Also a cute movie. Also had a 13-year old kid in it but I found him more endearing and authentic, for some reason. "I love you, Jessica Riley!" (This will only make sense if you've seen it.) I thought he was the best part of the movie.
What kind of character annoys you to the point that you close a book, stop watching a TV show, or walk out of a movie?
