So, I have no plans to go see Bride Wars, the new Anne Hathaway-Kate Hudson movie that opens today. As much as I really like Anne Hathaway (and as much as I sometimes like your standard chick flick), this just looks really bad. (But hey, if you see it and love it... I judge not. ;)

Still, I decided to read the NY Times movie review today, and... the critic is totally a femslash shipper. She basically says that the movie really sucks, but the one semi-interesting thing about it is the idea that Anne's character (Emma) and Kate's character (Liv) totally wanted each other. ;)

And I quote...

"Since childhood, the two [main characters] have dreamed of getting married at the Plaza (alas, not to each other)..."

"The opener — a gauzy scene from childhood that finds Liv and Emma, dressed as a bride and groom, tenderly dancing with each other — and an adult catfight, which looks like a prelude to a kiss, suggest that there may be more to this friendship (and the fury underlying its rupture) than either the women or the movie can admit."

"[T]here’s no getting lost in a movie like “Bride Wars” — but it’s nice to pretend that they might lead somewhere else, say to San Francisco, where once upon another time two female movie characters, inspired by Harvey Milk (or maybe just Sean Penn), will take on the gay-marriage ban and say 'I do, I do' to something more than shopping."

So yes... talk of femslashy subtext has totally made it all the way to the New York Times. :D

This floats around my f'list every once in a while, but I haven't done it yet before. Most recently stolen from [ profile] grumpybear1031

2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDB search functions. That's cheating and it ruins the fun. Bonus points if you know who said it

Note: If there's a / in the middle of the quote, it means that it's actually two people speaking.

1. Hello, David. I mean "sir." Shit, I can't believe I just said that. And now I've gone and said "shit" - twice. I'm so sorry, sir.
Love Actually - [ profile] wickedchaos , [ profile] kauschi 

2. Is there any risk of brain damage? / Well, technically speaking, the procedure IS brain damage, but it's on par with a night of heavy drinking. Nothing you'll miss. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - [ profile] mercurychkita 

3. How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?
The Usual Suspects - [ profile] kauschi , [ profile] charrua33 

4. So what did I think? I'm holding out for something better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe, and join the National Guard? I could be elected president. Good Will Hunting - [ profile] revolos55 , [ profile] kauschi , [ profile] carpesomediem 

5. Well, let's hang these flowers and get that jacket in some water. Imagine Me & You - [ profile] kauschi , [ profile] charrua33 

6. Forty years I been asking permission to piss. I can't squeeze a drop without say-so.
The Shawshank Redemption - [ profile] carpesomediem 

7. You're not a killer. That's why you're so good at it.
Memento - [ profile] carpesomediem , [ profile] kauschi 

8. I think we've all arrived at a very special place. Spiritually, ecumencially, gramatically. Pirates of the Carribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl - [ profile] qbeck 

9. Correct me if I'm wrong, but your friend seems to be hitting on my friend. D.E.B.S. - [ profile] theagonyofblank 

10. It's a shame you're not a girl. / The world's badly made. L'Auberge Espagnole (aka The Spanish Apartment) - [ profile] qbeck 

Some of these probably wouldn't really make my all-time favorites list, but they were the first movies I thought of.
