Neil Patrick Harris, Director

image

Actor. Singer. Awards show host. Daddy. And now, director. Neil Patrick Harris will anchor rom-com Aaron and Sarah, starring Emma Roberts and Josh Hutcherson. The film “follows a geeky guy and a popular girl who become friends as freshmen in high school and see their relationship deepen through the four years, four proms and one funeral before graduation.” Just be glad they did away with the original title: BFF.

    Yet another movie where a female meeting all of society’s rigid standards for her, falls in love with and sympathizes with an inferior male. Yes, I said inferior. It’s always a pretty girl falling in love with some geek, fat bastard, mutant creature, sparkling vampire, human-animal hybrid, drug addict, etc. Who think that’s a good life-model for little girls? Teaching them to look like sluts while simultaneously lowering their standards for men? I guarantee you that hard-working young mother with the pot-bellied auto-mechanic husband in line at Wal-Mart regrets the day she painted a pretty picture in her mind of the poor f*ck she let into her life. How long until we get a movie where it’s an incredible guy with a painfully attractive appearance who, for no reason at all-like in these movies-sympathizes and falls in love with a 200 pound, sparkling mutant morbidly obese acne-prone swamp toad that’s going to die in five months? (Oh, and Superstar doesn’t count.)

    …not that Mr. Hutcherson is any way unattractive and fits this mold. So that helps.

    @Bryan: I dunno, having just graduated from high school and going through my mournful reflection phase, it can be pretty interesting to see how friendships develop over the high school years. Especially if one becomes more popular and the other becomes less.

    Buuut then again, it could just be another motherfucking rom com.
    aaaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh if it is.

    Wouldn’t this have been interesting with the characters being gay? But nooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Hollywood can’t stand the idea of films that don’t present their heteronormative view points. Happy, well adjusted queers? Fuck that shit! I wonder when the first film “tackling” anti-gay bullying will be foisted upon the public. Written by a het. Produced by a het. Directed by a het. And starring a het.

    With a working title of “BFF” I wouldn’t be surprised if the guy was gay. This sounds like a lot of my friendships.

    And we should care why?
