    Girls Just Want to Have Fun


    I wanted to be friends with Sarah Jessica Parker from the moment I saw her in Square Pegs. The next step in our friendship would have been me as the Helen Hunt character in this wonderful film.

    Maybe I am just so completely out of touch with what is considered "quality"? I had a lot of fun with this movie.

    Jennifer Garner is always the best kind of dream woman and her Elektra kicks some serious ass. The villains had some some cool powers. The fights were fun. It was a badass mystical ninja flick.

    Let’s make a scary movie.
    We should get Vincent Price.
    Do we have a script?
    Screw that, just get Vincent Price.
    What is he gonna say that is scary.
    Ummmm, he can just make some stuff up.
    Like what?
    She’s a witch!
    That will work.
    But how will we know who the bad guys are.
    Rape some witches.
    Oh yeah, that will work.
    Do we have a scary dog to kill?
    We can rub some toothpaste on the mouth of…
