Okay, is it me are is everyone else sick of these adultery movies. There was that foreign film whose trailer I posted earlier, there's Take this Waltz, last year Natalie Portman made The Other Woman, and now this.
I know that this is a small movie that few people will see, but I still can't believe someone paid money to make this. How will it make its money back? The movies mentioned above have been or will be bombs. It's being released on iTunes first. I can't tell if that's genius or desperation.
I have a theory that this is what Hollywood thinks of marriage. They think its just a lie held together out of desperation, ready to snap at a moment's notice. The truth is that most people don't cheat on their spouses.
Why would we find any of this compelling? I can't identify with adultery. I remember seeing the movie Welcome to the Rileys, and it starts off by showing the main character having an affair. It added nothing to the plot. It was just there. I remember getting angry watching He's Just Not That Into You (yes, I saw it! So what?), when Drew Barrymore convinces Scarlett Johansson to seduce a married man because he "could be the ONE!" How stupid is that! How could this person you are trying to get to philander ever be guaranteed to not philander on you?
Sorry, I digress.
I know that not a lot of people see these movies, but they make so many of them!
But I believe in happily ever after. My wife and I are living it every day. But the more of this dreck that comes out, the less people will believe it. So they won't believe in true love and instead settle for a shadow of the real thing.
