(And yes, for those who know me, the only reason I went and saw the flick was for Kate - it's been aeons since Underworld 2!)
And boy did I have a difficult time sitting straight... Kate in pyjamas... MmMmmmMm.... *biting finger*
More surprising than Kate in pyjamas though was how the movie played out. Initially the movie was going along okay as a comedy and then as it progressed it began unfolding as a drama - which played on a few heart strings!
But maybe that's because it came a little close to some truths in my life: putting the pursuit of things before family and friends.
A sin I admit being guilty of many years ago.
It was after the movie that my mind began reflecting back on my 10-year high school reunion where classmates were attached to their wives with smiles and laughter. Unfortunately my mind didn't allow me to get off at that stop, so I was soon flooded by the inevitable series of questions of...
- Did I really make the right decision after I finished university?
- Who do I have attached to me?
- Why couldn't I just have been "normal" and got a 9-5 job like everyone else?
- Blah blah blah
Yep, even for blokes like me who try and keep a tough rugged exterior I still battle over my inner demons: especially after movies like Click and The Family Man.
I laughed when I asked my mate Chris what he thought of the movie and his stern reply was,
"Why's that?" I asked.
"I almost cried!"
Yeah, I gotta admit - guys hate that.
