I need some help from y'all.

I'm getting sweated to take Angela to see "The Time Travellers' Wife". First off. it looks gay as hell. Second off, it looks "Notebook" shittty, an even have Rachel McPsuusy Whipped in it.

There's NFW I want to go, and yet, I'm thinking about football season coming up and all those college triple headers in peace.

Is it worth it? Or will my manhood just shrivel up and die?

Gay as hell? Come on. It sounds phenomenal:

This is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap.

The story told is a test of love, and patience. It shows that love knows no boundaries and transcends time and death.


The lead is "dashing and adventuresome". Just the way you like 'em.

Sounds like the movie itself transcends death.

That said, the football season is a hell of a lot longer than 3 hours. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do. You wear a bow tie and a bowler to the theater and you get a pass from me. Pics required.

It's rated "Five Ball-Bag Punches" though.

:pb: :pb: :pb: :pb: :pb:

Enjoy.

That's a dashing and adventuresome LIBRARIAN.

Librarian?

Really?

Seriously?

I don't know if I can do this. Maybe after a serious Happy Hour?

I think that the Y=town Sports' Grill is across the street from the theater and Vintage Estates is a few yards up the road. Like alot of things, maybe if I'm hammered enough I'll do it.

I may be a rookie in the marriage field, but I've learned a Pretty woman here and a Sex in the City movie there goes along way. I went with 1. She is in to this HGTV (any show) kick right now, driving me nuts. The shows arent that bad, but the constant barrage makes me want to :pb:

JB, here's what I do.

First, just in general, even Erie Warrior knows ... there are times as a man where you must succumb. Financially, and with your free time. By being smart you can maximize the return of these sacrifices.

For me, I look ahead. Take September for example. I have a trip to OSU for the opener, an overnight golf outing, the OSU/Toledo day of drunken debauchery, a couple days where I have Indians tickets, and a couple of fantasy football drafts. Plus, just the first month of football season, which leads to a lot of couch time when I'm not at one of these events. Add in all the time I spend at home online because of the site, and the fact that our anniversary is Sept 13 and her birthday is Sept 27 ... and it's a dicey month for me. If I don't carefully maneuver around these land mines, I may blow a leg off.

For the last 6-7 weeks I have been telling my wife we cannot afford things she wants to do, that in reality, won't cause me to send the mortgage payment in late. Been preaching fiscal responsibility in these turbulent times. I've gone as far as to have her replace one of my three weekly six packs of Great Lakes beer with a six pack of Miller Lite. And spending a couple hours on a weekend cleaning so we can skip the $78 biweekly cleaning lady bill once a month.

My evil plan is to systematically approve these purchases she wants in waves. Starting in about 10 days here. I'm doomed to eventually make them at some point, why not use the timing to my advantage? Then, a day or two after approving them, I'll invite her mom over for dinner. And spring the events (a couple at a time) on her there, in front of her mom. I have found that my wife is much more friendly, much more amiable to things I want to do when her mom and family is over (the more family the better). I just kinda slip it into a conversation. It's almost fool proof, especially following doing something nice for her.

On the chick flick dilemma, this is what I do. And note ... we rarely go to the theater since we've had kids. This is more of a Netflix issue for me.

Like with the finances, I control the Netflix queue. The only thing scarier than my wife's spending prowess is her remarkably awful taste in movies. She likes SHITTY movies. She hated The Godfather and liked the Sex & The City movie. I almost left her on principle.

About once a month she'll come to me with a movie like this one that she wants to see. I'll surf the net and find the shittiest review out there for it. Then, find a film that may be semi-chick flicky ... but still one I wouldn't mind seeing, and find the best review possible online for it. Print em both out, bring em to her, and say ...

"Well, I was going to order (shitty chick flick), but wow, I didn't realize how bad the reviews were! Since we are overdue to order a movie you want, I took the liberty to look into some other chick flicks. Check this one out. The reviews on it are amazing. How about we get this one first, then order _______."

She eventually forgets about the first one, eventually watches it On Demand when it comes to HBO/Showtime one night while I watch baseball.

If that plan doesn't work, and you find yourself forced to watch a horrid chick flick ... drink three Commodore Perry IPA's in less than an hour before heading out to the theater. You'll find yourself laughing at parts not intended to be funny, but it helps lessen the pain.

One last thing. With all due respect, your girlfriend is pretty good looking and has you by a couple years. By no means am I calling you The Elephant Man with a Golden Buckeye card, but you just naturally lose a little hand in the relationship right off the bat. ;-) ;) :wink:

The trailer for the film was released in early June 2009, and Jeremy Medina of Entertainment Weekly referred to it as The Notebook crossed with Benjamin Button.

Jesus H JB ... you got a dilemma on your hands here.

Another option. Agree to go and even act happy about it. Go Ferris Bueller on her the night of. Maybe even eat 3-4 laxatives. You can come off looking like the good guy and if you are adept enough at faking sick, may even get to lay on your ass and watch sports and be waited on for a couple days.

That could just backfire too. Say she decides to then stay in because she doesnt want to leave him sick and doesnt want to go alone to the theatre... if you are going to do this, I'd try to find one of her friends, invite her to come and then fall sick. Otherwise, if she postpones it you are stuck with the green apple splatters for 36 hours and still have to avoid going the next weekend.

I say bite the bullet, worth it in the end. However, there is another aspect to this movie you are all missing. If done right, this could have been the best film ever. Let me explain based on what I have seen in trailer:

Guy meets girl, then leaves to another time & place

Guy dates girl, then leaves to a time in place

Guy marries girl, (probably bangs girl) then leaves to another time in place.

Girl has baby and is stuck with a whining, crying baby while the guy leaves to another time and place.


See a theme here? Its like the best possible scenario for the guy. Gets what he wants (from Rachel McAdams nonetheless), then leaves to a place where she can NEVER find and nag the life out of him. Sure, they probably kill the ending with some sappy love story but go to your happy place and imagine
the guy going back to live the awesome life of a bachelor playing the field..

Tell her that money's tight right now and that you can't afford to go. It's $10 per ticket nowadays unless you catch a matinee! Promise her that when it comes out on Redbox that you'll rent it.

Then in 3 months when it comes out on Redbox, rent it for a buck and bring it home on a night where there is no Buckeyes/Browns/Cavs game. Your sacrifice is minimal (2 hrs of misery from the comfort of your own couch) and she will not only love that you're watching it with her, but she'll love the surprise. In addition, you've avoided the absolute worst part of going to the theater to see the chick flick: other people at the theater seeing you being dragged by your balls to see the film.

That is the worst part. You walk into a flick like that, and you see two types of men. Those saps actually happy to be there ... and the others, like you, nervously panning the theater grounds, terrified of seeing someone they know.

You see those latter guys ... to quote Bubba Clinton, you can feel their pain. You make eye contact, it's like a silent plea for help. Both of you wishing the other would pull the fire alarm and put both of you out of their misery.

Eff you all. I had to go see all those fucking Diane Keaton movies that came out in the last 5 years. Oh and those stupid Reese Witherspoon movies. Luckily, thanks to alcohol, i've forgotten most of that, but I still have flashback....... Pure horror.

Neither have I. Nor will I see this steaming pile. The worst I've been dragged to has been Harry Potter. I went to see Titanic in high school with a girl to get laid. After that, I vowed to never again waste time or money on chick flicks. I lay the rule down as soon as she asks "what kind of movies do you like". If she leaves, fine.

saw the Notebook, almost cried. out of pure pain in my eyes and ears. i almost blacked out, which woulda been a welcome release from the shit i was enduring. but, by the grace of the Lord himself, before i knew it i was in the backseat of my buick with my girl doing some work somewhere in mill creek park. moral of the story, a couple hours of mind-numbing drivel will usually pay off. bite the bullet brotha

You can get out of it. Just remark how Eric Bana seems to be playing a pedophile. He meets this woman while she is a small child and he is fully grown, and plans to sleep with her and marry her later? And he tells her (from what I saw in the trailers)? Gross.

You know, I thought that was pretty creepy myself. What do you say to your female when you go back in time and she's six years old? "Pumpkin, you're going to drink your milk and fill out and grow up all big and strong, and in about twenty years I'm going to be fucking your brains out."

I don't mean to spoil your guys' fun here, but... I've thought about that, thought it was that, it's creepy (and ultimately unrealistic) but it's not really pedophilia. Might seem like that. But it's not. I know, I know I just killed the fun. :thud:

Here's how much I love my wife: I READ THIS BOOK AT HER REQUEST.

Actually the book wasn't terrible, and somewhat inventive. I've heard that the movie sucks, that they just did a crap job. Sad, they probably could've made a watchable movie out of the book. There is some violence and lots of sex in the book. Plus I like anything time-travel related.

I did my time already, good luck at the movies fellas.

Reading through those reviews on rottentomatoes, this movie clearly transcends the stereotypical doucheyness that's saturating this thread. It's target audience is irrelevant.

That's just flat out a bad movie.

So unless you're the type who drags her to see the manly man version of that drek (in which case you're F'd), there is no reason whatsoever to go see this thing.

Maybe you and I can see 'Time Traveler's Wife' together and heal our wounded relationship? I'll get the popcorn.
