Down with Love

down_with_love.jpg Down with Love hits theaters May 16. It’s a cute movie that reminds me of a 1960s version of the Brady Bunch movies — chock-full of sexual innuendos and gags. It was a fun movie to watch on a Tuesday night, especially since it was free.

Every once in a while, Jen and I end up with a pass to the sneak preview of a new movie. There’s usually a long line we have to stand in beforehand. But that’s OK. You get what you pay for.

Last night’s preview was funny because Fox was so paranoid about people trying to sneak recording devices into the theater. There were security guards who inspected your bag once or twice and scanned you up and down with a broken metal detector. My jacket pocket set off the metal detector, but the guy waved me through as he held the detector to his ear and explained to me that it was broken. Hmm. Seems to me that that undermines the strict security. For all he knew, I could’ve had a digital camcorder or camera in my pocket and could be posting illegal clips from the movie right now. Don’t worry, Fox, I didn’t and I’m not. The photo herein is one I snaked from Yahoo. Besides, the picture quality would suck if I had been sitting in the theater trying to take pictures of the screen. It cracks me up that people do that and that it’s such a big market in Asian countries and on the streets of Manhattan. It goes against the whole DVD obsession that I and many others have these days.

In any case, Down with Love was a fairly good movie. Nothing blockbustering (yes, that is a made-up word), but fun to watch nonetheless. Renee’s not going to win any Oscars for her performance this time.
