It's Already Brough-et

Josh The Pilot and I were discussing my latest MSNBC.com article, and he said, as all good boyfriends should, that Stick It sounded horrid, and although he enjoyed Bring It On, a director can make quite a difference in a movie, and--

We now bring you the transcript of the conversation that followed:

ME: You saw... Bring It On?

JTP: Yeah. I have the DVD. And--

ME: You... own the DVD?

JTP: ...and in the commentary track, the director said...

ME: You own a copy of Bring It On and you watched the commentary track? And nobody was threatening you with immediate castration?

JTP: Yes.

ME: I do not love you ANYMORE.

aww.. i think it's all cute and metro that he likes bring it on.
my husband REQUESTED bridget jones diary on one early date.. i'm glad i stuck with him ;)

Mary said...

My husband likes Legally Blonde (and Bridget Jones) way more than I do, but I'm not supposed to tell anyone that. :D

C'mon! Sparky Polasky?? It doesn't get any better than that. Cut JTP some slack. It could be worse. He could've hidden the fact that he owns the dvd from you, right? RIGHT?

lizzy said...

You can learn a lot from a person by looking at their DVD collection. I would worry about JTP, if I were you.

Lizzy said...

And it's Sparky Polastri, by the way.

I have to admit that when it comes to things like plot, Bring It On definetally leaves something to be desired. But there are worse movies for a guy to like than one featuring cheerleaders. And watching the director's track could just mean that he's trying to be intellegent and view the movie on a higher level, or check to see if it has one (or is at least using that as an excuse for having said movie). After all, we all have those couple DVD's that we'd rather not let people know we have. My excuse is that well rounded people should have a well rounded movie collection.

Come on, Bring It On isn't that bad. I quite enjoy it. You just have to remember that it's supposed to be mindless entertainment. It's about cheerleading, after all. It's all about the spirit fingers.

If you're dumping JTP, he can feel free to send his boyfriend application to me.

Never seen Bring It on, although I have a big crush on Kirsten Dunst, ever since I saw her on Interview with the Vampire (yeah, I know that's quite disturbing).

But c'mon MB! Honestly, what would have been worse? to find out JTP has Bring It ON in his dvd collection... or to find he's got recorded programs of Baywatch??

Dantelope said...

Josh is a man.

Bring It On has hot cheerleaders in skimpy outfits and some decent cat fighting.

I fail to see your issue.

Now, if Josh were talking about the porn alternative, Bring Tit On, I could understand your dismissal of said boyfriend rights.

Fortunately for Josh, he didn't tell you about that one. Yet.

LOL!!! :-)

I wonder what it's going to be the porn alternative for Stick It... although I think Larry Flint will find this a no-brainer.

kredin said...

I think most people here have forgotten that JTP is a former cheerleader of the male persuasion. (Vice the “former male cheerleader”.)

Bring It On is about cheerleading, right?

Connect the dots, people.

MB, this is only one small hurdle to overcome in the deepening of your relationship with JTP. Let it go. Later there will be many, many much larger hurdles to leap in a single bound. Besides cheerleading is one of the things that makes JTP unique, right? Let him enjoy this harmless, guilty pleasure. (Yes, its harmless.)

Personally, I’m some what of a computer geek. My DVD collection includes titles like The Net (Sandra Bullock) and War Games (Matthew Broderick/Ally Sheedy). I’m not particularly proud of this fact, but there they are. One the shelf. And in my database. Both in alphabetical order.

Just my 2 cents.

How do you get the little accent marks over the e's? I can't find them on my keyboard.

(Sorry for dumbing down the comment section, I'll discuss AstroPhysics next time. Asto beats Scooby EVERY time!)

I completely agree with you. Bring It On is one of the WORST EVER films I had the unfortunate experience to watch with my young nieces. (Worse even than Titanic)It would be one thing for JTP to have seen it... completely another for him to ADMIT that he OWNS it. I completely understand your feelings here!

SusannahS said...

Your MSNBC article brought back memories...do you rememberthe Mary Lou Retton clips on Saturday mornings? During commercial breaks or between cartoons, we'd have a quick session with our beloved MLR? In between the "Schoolhouse Rocks" and "Menudo on ABC" videos, of course!
I miss those mid80s Saturday mornings!

red pill junkie said...

You... miss MENUDO?? 8-(

if there's a cheerleader fetish involved, i hope you have the appropriate attire in your dress-up box.

J Kramer said...

Ok the obvious Porn Version title I like is "Stick It In"
I strongly agree that a person's movies collection and TV tastes reveal a great many things about them.

And I won't pretend that I haven't seen Bring it ON But Eliza DUshku is HOT!

My wife tells me that she knew I was the one when I was comfortable confessing my fondness for "Brigadoon" and "Quiet Man." I am frequently asked to absent myself from the room, however, in light of my derisive commentary during "America's Next Top (Coked-Up Ho) Model." You do have to draw the line somewhere. Give JTP a break.

savannah the college student said...

Am I the only one that cares about the rest of what JTP was going to say? Maybe he had something all deep and meaning-of-life-ish lined up, and now we'll never know. :(

Dantelope said...

I would actually pay good money to see a series called America's Next Top Coked-Up Ho Model.

...or American Mime Crotch Kicker...

Damn good ideas all around.

Btw, ahenj, your husband requested Bridget Jones Diary for only one of a few possible reasons:

1) He was trying to come off as sensitive because he is in fact wanted on charges of abusing circus clowns in seven states and didn't want you to catch on.

2) He is sexually aroused by Hugh Grant and enjoys the company of half-naked men in the sauna at Lifetime Fitness.

3) He is, in fact, Hugh Grant, and thus like to watch himself and hear himself at all times.

4) You heard him say Bridget Jones Diary but he really said "Bitchez Ho'z n' Me" and then he couldn't go back on it because you had that doe-eyed look that guarantees a man a night worthy of bragging.

Oh no you dinnt!
Oh yes I did!

"...or American Mime Crotch Kicker..."

Dude, what's with you and mimes? Did you suffer a traumatic childhood experiencing involving a malevolent Marcel Marceau look-alike? ;-)

Dantelope said...

My therapist seems to think so...

Josh The Pilot said...

Thanks everyone for the wonderful support, and to those of you who can't handle this male cheerleader, phooey on you. This is definitely the first time I've been called "metro"... MB says I'm cute but being a Nascar fan automatically negates the metro label, although I do use Nivea (it works! I've got MB!). I LOVE Legally Blonde, too, but I draw the line at Bridget Jones. Lizzy, ask MB about my other DVDs, and you'll know why MB doesn't have to wonder about me. Katie... I'll keep you in mind, but for now you'll be waiting a long time! To Anon2, I still have my old uniform, but MB doesn't have a cheerleader fetish. Savannah, my deep and meaning of life lesson gleaned from Bring It On is to never trust a man named Sparky, especially one who claims that cheerleaders are dancers gone retarded (it's the other way around!).

dantelope:
snort*circus clowns* snort giggle..
on a more serious note,
here's hoping not, because clowns freak me the heck out, and that is one outfit that i'd NEVER bring to the bedroom..
