We're watching "My Best Friend's Wedding," which looks beautiful on HDTV, on Showtime, right now. And we just dissolved into hysterical laughter. Here's Julia Roberts, served an elegant dinner in a lovely restaurant, sitting across the table from Rupert Everett -- he's gay! -- and we hear her cell phone ring, she pulls it out, and the thing is as large as a man's shoe!
In the next scene, she's at home, and her phone rings. Chris says: "Her home phone is smaller than her cell phone." And we laugh a lot all over again.
Me: This is a pretty good comedy.
Chris: Do you remember totally hating this movie?
Me: What'd I say?
Chris: I think you said there were too many closeups.
Chris: These actresses [Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz], if you saw them in real life, they wouldn't be that attractive.
Me: But the thing is, their face, their whole body sends out so much personality.
Later (as Julia Roberts sets up Cameron Diaz for humiliation in the karaoke bar):
Me: She's really evil.
Chris: That's what people don't like about it.
Me: I like that about her!
That's why it's a cool comedy. Julia's bad!
