All you need is romcoms.

So after being single for-ever one starts getting cynical about it. (See what I did there?) But honestly, that’s not a surprise since us stupid human beings have manage to be cynical about almost everything in life that kinda upsets us but we try hard not to let it show, so naturally we start being mean, acting cold and usually talking in an elaborated almost pretentious way instead. #sorrynotsorry

Still, single and all as I am, romantic comedies are my favorite kind of comedies, kind of movies in general actually… No matter how cheesy, predictable, unoriginal or commercial they can be I truly believe they are one of those few still reliable things on earth. From a romcom at least you know what to expect and then also you can expect that every romcom will fulfill your expectations, agree? Even if you’re just expecting it to be super-dork and unreal, you’ll be happy to know that no matter how much terribly-dramatic scenes you watch along, things will go smoothly in the end.

*Except for those painful romcoms as “Me before you”… Gosh, I felt so betrayed when I saw that emotional-ambush! The end got me in tears and not the usual happiness-I wish it was me-tears but the awful P.S. I love you-why are you doing this to me-tears 😦

Yet again: sarcasm. That’s what I need at this exact point of my life. Witty jokes and sharp quotes.

I’m a hopeless romantic and a Valentine’s Grinch at the same time

Yesterday I almost watched “In my dreams” but oh Lord after 2 minutes of watching its stupidly-perfect main characters, I had enough. Both were so sweet and proper! I-couldn’t stand them. As contradictory as this may sound I’m a hopeless romantic and a Valentine’s Grinch at the same time, so what I needed was a pair of characters so wrecked and lost that hopefully wouldn’t make me feel worse about myself.

And luckily enough, I found them!

In a different movie though… (next friday I’ll post about it)

Anyway, as much as I enjoy laughing at catchy lines and sighing at cheesy gestures, deeply inside I know that’s not the main reason why I watch romcoms… I guess there’s nobody who can deny that what we feel when we end up watching a romcom is: hope. Silly, childish, unfounded hope but that still works up your mood and makes you feel blindly positive. You know, like anything could happen and that it could actually happen to you with whom you never ever imagined and when you least expect it!

But also nothing-at-all could happen too because that’s in fact what you least, least expect after watching a romcom. Thereby after some time by your own you might realize that romcoms are just another exageration of life and love, of soulmates, destiny and good luck… and since nothing “romantic” happens to you in a while you’ll need to get back to romcoms to get the perfect substitude of love, your dose of hope; because just like when you are on a diet and you start feeling upset for not being allowed to consume sugar, you have to remember there’s always Splenda to sweeten your life!

And besides The Beatles explained it better:

All you need is love.

82* Real girls eat cake

Is it mockery or is it actual art? For sure, it’s music. And it’s hilariously great.

Last week one of my best friends mentioned this boy-band that got her as obsessed as One Direction because of its cheesy tunes but with less cliché lyrics… actually they got nearly no conventional lyrics at all.

The Janoskians

Can you believe that this band’s name is an acronym for “Just Another Name Of Silly Kids In Another Nation”? At least that’s what Wikipedia claims.

Formed by 5 australian kids currently living in L.A. this comical/musical group has taken over Youtube!

Fun-fact: Three of its members are brothers (two of them -sexy- twins) and the other two are their best-friends.

Here you can watch the official -and explicit- video of today’s song which includes a highly criticized vocabulary and some nonsense lyrics but in general a heroic message to all GIRLS: stop worrying about your size, EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT, never forget you’re beautiful and that anybody who loves you wouldn’t change a thing about you.

About the music, this song has a tropical laid back rhythm that speeds up perfectly at the chorus and makes you feel uplifted at the end. About the video, seriously GO watch it now.

…And here the funny lyrics:

Hey girl,
I see you made an effort with your lipstick,
But you got some on your teeth
You fucking dipshit,
You’re like a hot mess and I like it
Let’s go,
When we go out we make a great team,
You eat like a dude and lick your plate clean,
You’re my kind of girl and I like it

I’ll be the first to take you to the prom at our school,
I get a stiffy from all your awkward dance moves
I even wrote a stupid song because I like you
(it’s really stupid, this song).

I don’t need a girl to worry about a thigh gap,
I like the fact that you don’t give a shit about that,
You’re still sexy if you eat more than salad on a date
‘Cause real girls eat cake.
To me you’re prettier than Adriana Lima,
The way you work it when you’re looking in the mirror.
When you’re with me you can be who you are for fuck sake
‘Cause real girls eat cake.

I really really like the way your face is (it’s beautiful),
Even when there’s food stuck in your braces (yummy),
But I still snog you ‘cause I like it (yeah, yeah, yeah).
Let me have a word with your mum ‘cause she’s sexy (she’s sexy)
It must run in your genes if you get me,
I gotta admit that I like her (yeah, yeah, yeah).

(…)

Chocolate, strawberry, banana,
And vanilla cake that would be nice
And ice whipped cream cake.
And chocolate cake cream cake also with a little lemon
And herb cake.
And some fat cake over there
Tomato sauce cake over there.
Vegemite cake oh what other cakes can we have?
Fucking Jacob Fultons mmm fucking cake

Friends with kids

There are already lots of romantic dramas/comedies about “friends with benefits” but who had thought before about this variant?

YEAH turns out that “friends with kids” is also a great (unexplored) plot!

Tbh I may have a cheeky weird taste on movies (not bad just weird) but at the end I realized  that I did like this one too much. Why? Because I had no reason to stop watching it even though it is almost 2 hours long and includes baby’s poop. But also because, as it happens to me when I like something too much, I started googling about  it immediately.

Ok. I get it if those 2 reasons didn’t mean anything to you but I’m trying not to give too much spoilers, not to tell you the summary but just to explain my thoughts after watching it and hoping you’ll rely on me ❤

I must admit that at the beginning of the movie I was strongly questioning why had anybody picked Jennifer Westfeldt for the main role, then as the movie goes on it starts kinda making sense but it isn’t until the very end (I mean after it already ended) that you see her name on the credits not only as actress but as the Writer and Director of the film too!!

Let’s face it, she totally created her perfect role and afterwards placed herself on it! Ah, GENIUS.

Now, according to stereotypes we might think  “Of course, it took a girl to nail this topic that includes so much about motherhood” NOT because it includes kids it means it’s all girly, we must consider that it also has a really (usually) manly point of view that takes a lot into account the importance of freedom, youth and sex…

While this movie is another great story of best friends who fall in love or try hard not to fall in love with each other although they’re having sex or worst they’re having a KID together (and whatever else it is that great mess of friendzones that are so attractive and dramatic these days)

it also represents a clever (unconventional) way of sorting things out to accomplish our goals in every possible area: work, love, family, friends, fun, etc…

It is all well summarized in this poster of the movie that I personally loved and find sharply true:

Which ones would you pick?

If you can’t decide just now you must watch this movie more than ever! It’ll help you Guiño or at least it’ll make you laugh (and cry).

Yeah, I must accept that at the end I was actually about to cry and I would had hated it if it wasn’t because of its beautiful soundtrack by The 88, specifically the last song “Waiting for the next drug” which btw sums up perfectly the whole point of this movie.

Before I go on applauding this close to chick-flick, for those guys reading this and doubting to watch it, let me tell you Megan Fox is also on the film looking sexy and hot and what else? She’s by far not the best actress on the movie but has she ever been? JK, we all know she has pretty ass eyes.

Talking of actresses, there’s Maya Rudolph too, who I had previously decided that I loved for her performance at “Grown Ups” and “Brides Maids” not because she deserved an Oscar (obviously) but because she made me laugh widely, and she does (again) a great job acting like a bad-ass mom.

The male main role played by Adam Scott was really convincing for me, I don’t know what’s up with this guy but I found him siutable to play a sexy dork role.

And Edward Burns, I don’t care how old is he (he’s 46 ik bc I did my research) but he’s always burning up, just watch him at the beginning of romantic comedies as “The Holiday” with Cameron Diaz or at the well-known “27 dresses” with Katherine Heigl being the too good to be true guy.

Fun fact: Jon Hamm, who plays one of the friends in the group, is besides Jennifer Westfeldt husband!! See? Being the Director of a film really means doing all you want, acting a main part and getting your husband involved included.

Finally let me remind you this movie takes place in New York!

Oops, I think I’m in love with New York. Ever dreamed with marrying your best friend and raising your kids together in Manhattan? Yeah, I get you #FerConfessions
