There’s a new *Ghostbusters* movie incoming, one that fills the boots of the titular paranormal exterminators with female ankles and has *Bridesmaids* and *Spy* director Paul Feig using his comedy experience to bring it all together. None of this is a problem, of course – anyone who declares that a female-led *Ghostbusters* won’t work is an idiot – but there could be a tonal issue with the reboot’s approach. The first cast picture from set shows Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in uniform, lined up, looking *bored*.
Love is in the air everywhere you look around. You’ve got the best of my love. I just can’t get enough of your love, babe. I don’t care who you are, where you’re from, what you did, as long as you love me. I don’t care what they say I’m in love with you. All you need is love. Might as well face it you’re addicted to love. Come and get your love. Can you feel the love tonight?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. And there’s nothing wrong with that even if all the giant displays of red hearts and fluffy things and greeting cards and hand holding couples all over the mall are trying to tell you otherwise. There’s a lot of love in the world that doesn’t fit into cardboard boxes or perfectly co-ordinate with an arbitrary date in February.
Contrary to the current array of movies playing on television (AMC is playing Titanic back-to-back for 18 hours straight. The boat sank in 3.) there are also a lot of love stories in film. If you’re looking for something to watch tonight but don’t feel like crying alone while watching the Notebook (the tired stereotype of single women on this day), let me recommend some alternatives.
The Hangover was a great film. A comedy with a hard R rating and great chemistry between its three main players. The Hangover part 2 was the same move just in Thailand.
To it’s credit, The Hangover part 3 looks like it might deviate in it’s plot at least a little bit. On the flip side though it looks like Ken Jeong has a much larger part in this one and I’ve grown tired of his schtick.On the flip flip side, John Goodman as the antagonist = FUCK YES.
