Sandra Bullock Lesson #6
Manic Pixie Dreams with 90s fashion. Ooooh Yeah! Let’s learn from Forces of Nature.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles but with Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock. I must admit, I had negative views of this film going in. I HATE “Leave them at the altar chick flicks”.
This film pleasantly surprised me. There are spoilers, as the ending must be discussed to redeem this film.
Be honest with yourself about your fears
Don’t lie about being a doctor, someone will get sick and you’ll be screwed.
Seeing Ben Affleck strip cannot be unseen. You have been warned.
We need to get Juanita the Bull Tamer for Gizzy B’s birthday. I think she’d appreciate her talents.
I thought this was going to be a Manic Pixie Dream Girl hook up film. And it was, for 9/10ths of the film. But patience was rewarded and it turned into something else. Sandra Bullock’s character was aware of her MPDG status and didn’t like it. Was trying to change it and hated what she was doing to Ben Affleck’s character.
Ben realised that he wasn’t being honest about emotions, that it was his fears driving him to lust after SB. But he didn’t throw his whole life away because of it. He nearly did, and I nearly threw a shoe at the screen, but he didn’t.
