Touche

Back in my younger college days I somehow got suckered into watching Meet Joe Black. There had to have been a girl there because two of my other friends Andy and Josh also watched, and I am pretty sure we didn't decide to watch the movie ourselves. One of the reasons why I know we didn't decide to watch the movie is because we were making comments all throughout the movie, and I doubt we would have done that if we actually wanted to watch it (well, that, and it is a girly movie).
Our movie commentary was going great especially when Joe meets the girl that he likes in the movie. When they part they do a series of "look backs" at each other and we were able to call all of them because of the easy to recognize formula of: boy looks, then girl looks, the boy looks, then girl looks, and then finally boy looks. We were calling out this play like a football coach, and then:

I wish someone took a picture of our faces when that happened because that was not suppose to happen. We were pretty stunned/amused.
I'm sure it wouldn't have made such a lasting impact on me if we weren't making fun of the seemingly formulaic approach that they were doing at the time, but even to this day I respect the movie, I won't watch it again (it is after all a girly movie) but I do acknowledge it's existence.

YouTube is blocked at work so I can't see what you posted...is it the scene where someone gets hit by a car? (I can't remember if it was the boy or the girl.) I'm female (hopefully that's obvious by my name being Valerie), and I saw this with a male friend--we both HAAAAATTTTED it. Formulaic is right. And oh so boring....

@Valerie - Yeah it's the part where he gets ran over. By far the best part.

@Anamika - To us it is always funny to do movie commentary, I think it is just girls that get in a bad mood when they find it funny. :)

Whoa! It was a double hit--I'd forgotten that!! The commentary stuff makes me think of Mystery Science Theater 3000--that was the best!

that is much better than I had imagined it being.
