Just thought I might write about some crap movie lines, or movie lines that have just made me want to throw my popcorn at the screen. This is bizarre; I don't like popcorn, so won't buy it. It's probably the popcorn of the poor spectator sitting next to me that I will seize and throw with force at the screen.
1. 'Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get' by the titular character of the nausea-inducing 'Forrest Gump'. Every box of chocolates I have ever seen has a piece of paper inside the lid with a diagram of what each chocolate inside is, and how it is flavoured.
2. 'You treated me like a prostitute', spoken by Vivien in 'Pretty Woman'. All I can say to this is, 'Gee, ya THINK?' And since when does a prostitute that works the streets look like Julia Roberts? They usually look as rough as a pig's breakfast; ink and needle marks, and a runny nose from being scantily clad in the wintry weather.
3. 'Nobody puts Baby in the corner', spoken by Johnny in 'Dirty Dancing'. Uh, stewardess, can I have a barf bag, please?
Well, that's all for now. I'm heading off to watch a DVD for a while. My kids are going back to school tomorrow, so the days I'm not working, I will get back into my next novel. Check out my other two at Zeus Publications, http://www.zeus-publications.com. They are 'Calumny while reading Irvine Welsh' (adult satire) and 'Abernethy' (young adult). You can read the first chapters and blurb. They are available as paperback, and as e-books. My two sons never stop eating, so I'm hoping like crazy the books will sell!
