Actually, I don't think she would actually like it if she saw it. Somehow she's just really bad at judging the potential quality of this type of film based on the ads. Really I'm doing her a favor....

If you love her, you'll just grin and BEAR it. It's only a movie. There will be better and worse in your lifetime. It's not an argument worth having. I'm sure she puts up with plenty of the crap that you want to do.....Like going to brewing related stuff, eh?


Besides it actually doesn't look all THAT god aweful....on slightly so.

My son uses that site quite a bit. Show her the reviews. They put the best they got into a 30 second commercial. Bad way to make a choice.

When my wife says she wants to see (insert stupid chick flick here), I just say "ok honey". Then we just don't go. That, or I tell her to go see it with her mom. Stalling and saying you will Red Box it works too. I might not mind paying $1 to see that stupid movie at home where I have beer. I'm not shelling out $20+ to see it in the theatre though.

Go to the movie. No brainer.

Later, there will be weddings and other events that you must get out of. Do this one. Get out of jail free next time.

Just show her this. Then maybe she'll change her mind...

That parody only makes sense if you've seen The Assassination of Jesse James.

I like how some people are giving serious thought out answers while the_bird asked me right off the bat if I was donkey-punching her.

The thing with saying "yes, honey" and then just not going is that:
a) I've used that technique about 200 hundred times already in the last 6 months for various stuff.
b) We are going shopping for Christmas present on Sunday so we WILL be next to the damn theater.

I might just try to enlist my mother to go see it with her. It worked for all the Twilight movies Or I'll just go and bring a flask of gin for some improvised gin 7-ups.

For the record, I actually like the old cartoons.
