to my previous post about the film, Definitely, Maybe, starring Ryan Reynolds and Abigail Breslin. I saw this movie twice on my trip out west, coming and going. Below, are my observations:

1) I like Ryan Reynolds (since the days of "Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place"). The best parts of the whole flick have nothing to do with plot or emotions or ladies and little girls, just pure R and R. Man, remember that jiz donut from Van Wilder?

2) Abigail Breslin is big and old and shouldn't have been playing that little girl in such a little girl way.

3) I mean it. She's a woman, practically.

4) #1 tale too inappropriate to relay to your young (big) daughter: details of her (maybe) mother's collegiate lesbian escapades. Seriously, no shocked reaction like the one she had when she found out dad smoked cigarettes. I can only suspend my disbelief so much, filmmakers. And he shouldn't have brought her to April's apartment in the end either. Dad and daughter relationship seems unhealthily close.

5) I hate films that say their title lines in the dialogue, as in "April is taken aback by Will's words, and replies, "Definitely, Maybe." They go back to her apartment, where April has multiple copies of Jane Eyre."


  1. the TITULAR line. it's called the TITULAR line.

  2. oh i forgot it was logged in as tom. it's, um, not. it's me. but it's still the titular line.
