Recent political developments have become more personal though. By that I mean I normally can still be friends with people who hold a different political viewpoint from me. But I have to say finding out that some people I know in the UK voted for Brexit and an American friend voted Trump has really affected the way I think of those people. I knew my US friend was a Republican but I honestly did not think she would vote for Trump.
Those are so so good! I've never been a major fan of Melissa McCarthy (like her fine, but that's about it) but she is absolute genius as Spicey!
And Ellie, I know what you mean by these recent elections affecting real life acquaintances. I don't know anyone who would've voted for Brexit or Trump, although almost all people I know from the US are are people I met in South America that are US citizens or have later emigrated there and I guess they aren't the most likely group to vote Trump, or people I've met online who I've bonded with over similar opinions in the first place.
I said at some point that Trump's election isn't as big a deal as Brexit, but I'm beginning to doubt that opinion as Trump's presidency progresses. I can't believe it's only been a month!!
I didn't like Bridesmaids at all not even that plane scene. I don't like either the pictures of men doing the same kind of things.
That's how I felt, too. There was so much excitement when it came out because we finally had this "chick flick" that was hugely successful with both men and women. But I thought the movie was ruined by the low-brow toilet humour - which some people seemed to find hilarious. It was never aimed at women, no matter what they claimed. They made a movie about women that men would be willing to see - hence the toilet humour. It was just another Adam Sandler movie without Adam Sandler, so we're supposed to think it's some kind of feminist achievement.
I know a lot of women who were so happy that their husbands/boyfriends went with them to see it, when normally they wouldn't go anywhere near a movie about women. But these men regularly drag their wives/girlfriends to see the latest "action" movies to hit the theatres.
Sorry for the rant - I have strong feelings about Bridesmaids!
