Oh, MAN. This movie was NOT OUR FAVORITE. This is the single biggest waste of Meg Ryan I have ever sat through. Seriously, guys, Meg's typically awesome, and this movie SQUANDERED her charisma and talent. It also missed out on making Albert Einstein someone of interest - he felt flat and hollow too. And don't get me started on Meg's love interest. Dude came off as a creeper.
45 minutes in, I starting going Mystery Science Theater 3000 on this movie. And then I realized was riffing on a movie that Lovely Wife had picked. Probably rude. I really need to think ahead on these things...
"Oh, sorry," I said, turning to Lovely Wife. "Um... do you care if I make fun of this movie? Because it's really, really bad."
She married me because I'm blunt. At least, that's what I keep saying.
She shook her head. "Nope. This movie sucks. I'm bored. Please make fun of it."
Ahh... marital bliss. To hate the same movies your true love hates! So me and Lovely Wife laughed and face-palmed and groaned in shared chagrin through this painful movie. Poor Meg Ryan. We won't bring it up if we ever meet her IRL.
