I just went to see My Best Friend's Girl (with my girlfriend, not of my own free will) and it was pretty good, I thought.

Basically, the main character has a lucrative scheme in which he behaves despicably to women who have recently broken up with men, in order to make them run crying back to their ex's when they see the difference between the 'hand' and the 'bush' (as the protagonist puts it).

I'd be interested to see what other people think of it, as I would definitely say I found it funny, but I'm unsure about what I think of the film as a whole. Is it condoning horrible treatment of women by deriving humour from it? Even if it's not condoning it, is it wrong to make it the subject matter of a film that millions of 'impressionble' teenagers will see?

I don't know, but I certainly feel ambivalent about my reaction to it. I think it's an ok film, but I think it's on shaky ground.

Has anyone seen it (or the trailer)? What do you think?

and I'm currently in the process of trying to get my boyfriend to take me. But he's a busy & stubborn fella who likes nothing more than to just sleep! I will, however, prevail.

I look forward to seeing it! :)

That's all i have to say.
