Zarah’s Rating: 3
RATED PG-13: I saw this movie back in October and I planned to do a review. Then I got lazy. Then I saw it again like a week or two ago. Then I got lazy. Then I decided to whoop by butt into shape and make another post because it had been too long since my last one. So, here it goes:
This movie is funny, but it’s really inappropriate. It’s not the kind of immature, stupid inappropriate you hear in the back of the school bus, but the kind you would expect from a movie about various couple giving birth. I would NOT recommend seeing this with any of the following: a parent (unless they are the laid-back, cool cat kind [but they're still your parent so it's bound to be awkward to some extent]) an older sibling who is stuffy and uptight and tells you that you can’t watch things that you should totally be allowed to watch because they think they are doing you a favor but in actuality they are abusing their power as an older sibling, and if this was the 1700′s they would be King George and you would be the pilgrims who flee and become awesome once they declare independence (speaking of, go see National Treasure) and you would kick their butt for being a tyrannical tyrant who is full of tyranny and you would establish your own country that would prosper (but then around 200 years into the birth of your country, it would be faced with an economical depression that would be depressingly depressing), but your country still wouldn’t be number one in science and math, because that’s where the Asian countries come in (don’t even get me started on that) so everyone depends on it to be number one in English, which is where they get the whack teachers that play rock music in the middle of class and claim this is all part of the learning process… but I’m not talking about America… This is ALL hypothetical.
Anyways, more people NOT to see this with: anyone of the opposite gender (unless your the kind of person who is immune to that [in which case if you are, I'm sorry for you] or the other person is a really close friend so it doesn’t matter), and last but not least (actually last but most. This is the most important of all) anyone younger or immature who you don’t think can handle it. There is nothing worse than learning stuff way too young… Granted, I know now I’m probably making people my age start to be tyrannical to their siblings and once they are old enough the siblings still wouldn’t let them and then we’d get that whole situation I mentioned previously, but still.
I’ll tell you all a story: I once had a tyrannical older sibling (hard to believe, right? Alas, not all stories are gumdrops and candy canes). She wouldn’t let me watch ANYthing. Not Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, Mean Girls, Easy A, etc. (actually some of these are pretty bad). But then, one day, on a dark and stormy evening, I mustered up the courage to trespass into her room, take the DVD marked Mean Girls, slip it into the DVD player, when no one was home (or so I thought), played it, got to the first two minutes, then had the door open by none other than the dictator, I mean sister, herself, Julius Caesar! (That’s not her real name, if any of you didn’t realize. If you did, HISTORY BUFFS UNITE!) I shut the DVD player and plastered on my most convincing face (which was coincidentally MY MOST REVEALING GUILTY CONSPICUOUS FACE OF ALL!) I did not end up seeing Mean Girls that day. I don’t remember the first time I did, but the point is, after I did see it (with my sister’s permission), she started letting me see other stuff, and she started looking at me as her equal (which was stupid, because I’m not equal to her. I’M GREATER THAN HER! Me ≠ Caesar. Me > Caesar. See what I did there? Oh Gord, I can’t get enough of puns. (Gord is God and Lord put together. I said it accidentally today, but it sounds like you’re saying God with an Australian accent). I think she was so strict with me in the first place because when she was like 4, she was locked in a room by some distant relative who was like 13 (actually now that I think about it, my sister was probably 7 or 8) because he wouldn’t let her watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Because it was too inappropriate. . . I don’t think he was watching out for her. I think he was just being mean. But anyway that’s why she was strict with me (I presume, but ya know this is just my inner psychiatrist speaking). If I had a little brother or sister, I probably would have, but thank heavens I don’t. If your older sibling is like Julius Caesar, or King George IV (or is it VI? I’m a disgrace to history buffs everywhere) don’t fret. Either they are looking out for you, they are mean, or they don’t want to be bothered by you (which was the case for me most of the time, because my sister would get annoyed when I started watching a show SHE discovered, and now I’m a big fan, even though it’s HER show to begin with. Her words not mine. I mean gosh you don’t own the stinking show). Imagine if you were an older sibling and this annoying little brat with snot hanging out of your nose (… Not insinuating anything of course) and they wanted to watch a movie they wouldn’t understand or even appreciate. So use your judgment.
BACK TO THE MOVIE FINALLY:
Basic premise of story (I’ll try to keep it brief) – Various couples are pregnant. They struggle. Babies are born. The end.
Now how’d you like that? In between, there are a lot of jokes and funnies, but that pretty much sums up the whole movie!
The next review will be The Help!
