The One Where I Almost Pass Out

October 14, 2008

So Italian and adorable – I want to eat you with a spoon!

– Steve Rubell

So last night my sister and I attempted to watch 54. Not happening at all. This is a movie about a real-life cocaine-addicted possibly gay club owner from the eyes of an employee at the club. This is a movie where bartenders wear only boxers, people are perpetually popping pills and snorting coke and getting high, everybody seems to be naked and having sex every fifth scene, there are sometimes important conversations happening during the sex and eighty-year old women are gyrating on the dance floor trying to be provocative. 

And I watched all of this with my little sister. Okay, she’s not so little any more, but I’m still stuck in a time warp, alright?! When all this was happening, there I was, eyes closed and shaking my head willing all of this to be gone, while my sister sat through it calmly and then walked away with a shrug and a ‘What rubbish!’.

Oh dear God. 

PS – That Ryan Phillipe is impossibly cute though. 😐

    Um.. Exactly what my mom had to say after she read about my ‘would have been’ shopping experiences with you!
    “Gee! You’re not the kid what you were anymore.”

    It’s not even that. I watched stuff equivalent to soft-porn with my kid sister! It’s jangling my entire CNS. 😛

    Vinod –

    Wow, you watched a psuedo porn movie in a theatre with your sis and you still have appetite for a cute Ryan Phillipe. Chance’e illai! Kalakkara machchi. Idhuvallava Pudhumaippen, where is barathi? duh, seththupoyittaane… 😦

    Whatay! Theatre it seems – this is some shady 1998 movie! 😮 Indha kodumaiya theatre le vera paakanuma!

    And Ryan Phillipe’s cuteness came much before all of this, so yeah, it registered pretty well. 😛

    Such movies with lot of drugs-machoism don’t appeal to me at all 😐

    It’s not about what happened in the movie. I don’t really have issues with that. It’s just that I had to see all of that with my little sister, who is, well, still very little to me! 😛

    I understand about you not being able to watch it, but not even read?! Hmm.

    Swat –
    No macho-ism here. Just a helluva lot of narcotics! You’d go crazy trying to watch this garbage!

    Kar –
    I wisely IMDb-ed it. 7.5! Sounds good – I’ll watch it within the month! 😀

    Lol! :mrgreen:

    Shreevatsa –
    Ryan Phillipe is a VERY real person. Lmao. =)

    It’s perfectly sweet of you to write so much to urge me to not watch the film. But I think I need to, to understand what you’re saying. May be I’ll hate it in the end, but whatever – I have to watch it. 😀

    And I really wouldn’t delete your comment just cos you messed up the linking!
