Becky and I had a date last night and went to see 27 DRESSES. It was a good movie, though not as amazing as Heigel’s last outing in KNOCKED UP. But it was fun and everything I expect from a romantic comedy. And scattered through were some very, very funny lines. And in an effort to promote the contributions of screenwriters during this ugly strike I thought I’d name the screen writer here and quote some of my favorite lines from the movie.
The writer is Aline Brosh McKenna who also wrote one of my favorite movies from last year THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. Here are my two favorite lines:
“I feel like a just found out my favorite love song was written about a sandwich.”
And then this exchange later in the film.
“You don’t have any needs?”
“No, I’m Jesus.”
Good stuff. It’s movies like this that reallt make me think it’s time to stop fighting nature and start writing romantic comedies. Maybe more about this struggle later on the blog. I’m sure you’re all giddy about that.
