This weekend K and I were renting DVDs and chose Food Inc (aka the one we felt we should see) and The Boys Are Back (aka the light fluffy one that looked sweet and fun).
Why The Boys Are Back? New on DVD, good reviews, sweet film based on a true story, and stars Clive Owen. The Clive Owen factor was waaaay bigger for me than K, who seemed intrigued by this, and then casually asked if Mr Owen would be on my list of five.
What is the list of five? In case you haven't heard of it, the "freebie five" is a list of five celebrities so attractive that your significant other must let you sleep with them, consequence-free, should that unbelievable opportunity ever arise.
The idea was popularized in an episode of "Friends" when each character listed their five, Ross named Isabella Rossellini, and then literally bumped into her... and fumbled it.
Awesome as she is, Isabella Rosselini is not on my list. Who is? Who would be on your list?
K's list? I have not asked who would be on it, and I suspect would include Hugh Jackman and Howie Mandel. Yes, really.
My list, in no particular order, and with a very clearly stated, very devoted preference for my fiance....
1- Clive Owen
2- Eric Bana
3- John Barrowman
4- Greg Louganis
5- Rahm Emanuel
I think my choices are brilliant... and yep I am bracing for the feedback... bring it on!
And so how was the movie The Boys Are Back? Sweet, touching, intermittently funny, kind of slow, very predictable. Is it worth renting? Well, did I mention it stars Clive Owen?
