She’s Funny That Way

Watched suddenly the “She’s Funny That Way” and did not feel sorry at all. The movie grips you from the beginning with its story and keeps you involved until the end. Yes, there is a couple of obvious moments where you go like “yeah, of course”, but otherwise it’s a lovely little entertainment piece.

Unfortunately, the movie lacks any sort of coherent idea, meaning that there isn’t really anything that you will learn from it, for better or worse. So it remains simply a light entertainment piece for a lazy summer evening. That absence of some higher idea or education in the movie was a bit disappointing at the end since I kept waiting for the punchline and it never came. Still, it remained a thoroughly enjoyable movie right through the end.

Overall, recommended, a good comedy with an interesting plot and a few twists.… -->

First, I thought to make a joke that she is scared to see in daylight what was inside her the night before. But then I thought better of it because, first, the thing is going to be much smaller at breakfast, and, second, why would she be scared instead of admiring it? Women are usually rather playful and cheerful, if a bit subdued, after a good night.

Then I thought, “ah, but maybe she is in love and she is looking up at her master.” But that doesn’t make sense either. She would be then making breakfast for him, not waiting for him to serve her. She would not be so nervous, would she? That look does not really work and the actions clearly contradict such possible conclusion.

Admit it, I concluded, there is no way this situation could play out between a man and a woman. Therefore, the second person must be a woman too. That explains everything. Female dominance and fear. Bloody feminists.… -->
