OK. I’m coming out. I have been holding back this terrible secret all night and I just can’t contain it anymore.
I watched Amelie yesterday. You know the little French movie with that all the girls are so in love with. Well, I watched it. Merrin was at work and it was on Tivo and, well, I just watched it.
Worse? I kinda liked it. I know, I know. I’m a man and I’m not supposed to watch this crap. But still – it was kinda good. For those of you who haven’t seen it, I would kinda suggest watching it.
Two gripes (and these may redeem me slightly next time I go to Home Depot):
1) The movie is in French with subtitles. Better get the DVD and switch that sucker to English the way God intended. The subtitles are OK, but I recognize just enough of the French language to know that the subtitles were just summaries of the actual dialogue. Plus, if I wanted to read something I would go get a magazine or something.
2) Audrey Tautou, who plays the main character, was pretty good looking. They should have done a better job of making her hotter in the movie. (OK. I threw that one in as a desperate measure to reclaim some shred of my own masculinity!)
I’ll be surrendering my man card later today.
