Mike at Strollerderby expressed his glee at VH1’s afternoon TV offerings and that got me thinking.
See, I get to watch a lot of afternoon TV, too, since that’s usually naptime AND the hottest part of the day. We are in the house in the PM, is what I’m saying.
I usually have some reasonable movie on the DVR to watch (The Breakfast Club gets a lot of mileage because I don’t have the DVD for some odd reason), but sometimes I just get tired of the things I already own and start flipping the channels.
Today it’s Message in a Bottle and this movie pisses me off like nothing else. The first time I ever saw it, I was sick as a damn dog and home from work one day and all I wanted to do was watch some nice, cheesy chick-flick thing and forget about my snots for awhile.
“A ha!” I thought. “This will fit the bill!”
OH BOY was I wrong. No happy ending! HE DIES. That suuuuuuuuuuuucks. I remember being actually angry at the TV for showing me this movie. And now I’m watching it again because:
So yeah. I’m hating on this movie with an irrational kind of dislike reserved for certain small children and The Pepsi Girl.
Best thing? Thanks to the magic of HBO West, I can watch it AGAIN.
