You, Me and....

Having HBO is great; You get to see all those movies that weren't quite appealing enough to drag yourself to a theatre or rent a DVD, such as You, Me, and Dupree (just Dupree from now on), which I started watching while flipping through channels like any other days.

Although movie itself is a typical, silly Hollywood's romantic-comedy movie, it did have a part where I found myself empathizing with the main character. It's when Carl, who is newly wed with Molly, becomes jealous (not sure if this is right feeling but sort of same, I guess) of Dupree when he becomes pretty close to his wife after barging into his home soon after the wedding. When Dupree moves in at first, Carl was the one looking out for Dupree. But Molly, being a great person with a kind and understanding heart, is harsh on Carl and kind to Dupree. The movie makes some kind of stupid event to wrap it up, but I couldn't help but think that both Dupree and Molly failed to understand Carl at all.

Even if you had a friend who was very close to a girl or a boy you like, or are going out with, you must understand who carl would feel at this point. Maybe I am a selfish person, but I definitely wouldn't like to see one of my guy friend--or any friend actually--being so close to my girlfriend when I myself can't. It's not respectful of my friend, as well as stupidity of the girlfriend. Just think; what would you feel if your friend was getting along real well with your girl/boyfriend when you weren't having such a good time? I , out of respect to my friend if not anything else, wouldn't get so close with girlfriends/boyfriends if the couple are not actually showing much affection, which is when those two are the ones closest to each other at the moment. Watching a friend grabbing so much attention from someone dear is just heartbreaking...

Damn, I'll be like "What the hell are you doing to my wife?"

Oh, as a side note, thank God for HBO, and thanks to BellSouth, a company that I will be hating as soon as I get a HDTV--whenever that is--for letting me watch HBO even when I didn't order it.

maaaaaaybe, 'cause if you and the girl love each other what does it matter who she's friends with? But I agree about that movie, the part where she sits down to dinner with Dupree with the candles and she's all dressed up and they get drunk, that would suck to come home to....

you are so lucky u get hbo, I have to settle with TV links for movies >.< boooo...I still need to find a good copy of The Fountain too XD you should watch that next if it's on.

ㅋ 하지만 남자든 여자든 할것없이 여자입장에서도 똑같은 상황이라면 참기 힘들듯.

Christie/ Cuz love only lasts so long. People cannot be so understanding forever. I think not fooling around with friend's girlfriends/boyfriends is the least respect you can and should show to your friend.
