Yay! D.E.B.S is surely the very epitomy of escapist movies. Loved it. But frenglish is so a language
On another note, I'm not sure if i'd tip Brokeback Mountain as an Oscar winner either, but I think that's due in main part to it's current critics, who seem, along with (*gasp*) the ABC, to have pegged it as simply "The gay cowboy movie", which seems to be putting many, mainly in the straight community, off seeing it.
On a lighter note, it was quite funny to hear the show on "Straight talk radio", on this movie, with Steven Bennett, the man we all love to hate, and his "wife" *coughtrophywifecoverupcough* Irene. Somehow, the two seem to consider themselves authorities on the film, without actually having seen it.
"So, Irene, have you seen this movie?"
"No Steven, I haven't, and I don't intend to. This movie is...."
And of course, at the same time, they seem to feel that they have the inalieable right to come out with some of the worst "jokes" heard on talkback radio, mainly relating to the movie's "love is a force of nature" promotional line.
"Love is a force of nature? No, it should be 'sin is a force of nature'"
*Raucus, forced laughter, from Irene*
*Hearty, "manly", stereotypically "straight" laughter from Steven*
"Well, aha, Irene, that's definitely true. But seriously, Irene, it's no laughing matter"
Well, you've got that right Steve, but probably not for the reasons you're thinking
However, laughable and misinformed as the two may be, the fact remains that many people share the opinion of the two, so I wouldn't peg the film as an Oscar winner as yet. Unfortunately
