You, Me and Dupree
A and I watch lots of movies, especially since our recent cable tv upgrade has provided us with 20+ movie channels. Having that many channels doesn’t guarantee that there is anything on worth watching nor does it guarantee we are going to agree on what to watch. Since we have had this abundance of viewing pleasure it has come to my attention that A and I have very different taste in movies. Usually one of us gives in to the other but last night was an exception — we both were able to watch something of our choice because the movies were piggy-backed instead of running concurrently.
I, being the “chick” that I am, chose “You, Me and Dupree”. A, being the gentleman that he is, acquiesed politely with a minimum of eye rolling and, after dinner, we settled in for an entertaining evening ahead.
Well, long story short, A laughed. Now, this doesn’t happen easily for A. It isn’t that he is a grump, or anything like that, he just doesn’t find many things particularly humorous. But, last night, he laughed. Out loud. I laughed, too — at him laughing. It was a good evening.
I would recommend “You, Me and Dupree” for your next movie marathon while waiting for disastrous weather to arrive. Not because it is a fantastic movie but because it made A laugh.
Now, you are probably wondering what A’s choice was. I don’t know. I didn’t watch it. But, I know he didn’t laugh.
