Yes…I’m watching this movie even though it hits entirely too close to home and I will end up in a wine induced fit of ugly crying. But alas, I must live blog this.
“I’m still your best friend. You just haven’t seen me for awhile.” Getting the news the BFF you are in love with but have yet to admit to yourself but EVERYONE knows…yea…insta regret and self loathing.
-side note Julia Roberts…you are never the best friend. You are grade A leading lady material.
So obvious the bride to be is a major suck up…and clearly knows she doesn’t hold a candle to Julia Roberts. Also makes me think…shouldn’t she be a suck up a little. We female BFFs are tough critics and should never be messed with nor should our “Dawson’s.” (looking at you kassie..) notice I still consider that as my rightful title Bobby.
Although no BFF no matter how desperate should be that shameless of a 3rd wheel/jealous bitch…there is a very fine line. It’s an art not meant for amateurs. Yes, of course I’m talking about when Julia Roberts try’s to break them up via career. Enter desperate phone call to gay friend.
I am this Julia Roberts….ugh. I hated her in 1997.
Yes…gay friend I can easily release 9 years of unrequited love.
That moment when Julia/me realizes the object of my affection is a moron… But I’m a bigger one because I’m going with it. The old engaged to the gay guy trick…which clearly always works.
Ahh the random song and moment when two BFFs seriously ponder if they should be together. If only this happened in real life.
I mean seriously…how does one not know. I know. But he is an idiot.
Admitting you love someone…I have yet to conquer that but if Julia Roberts is that conflicted you have to wonder…why?
That moment in the hallway…when you feel so desperate as to drive in the middle of a storm for a cigarette…that’s a terrible feeling. Especially when i don’t actually smoke. And when you know you did the unthinkable and broke your BFFs heart.
And that moment when you realize you are not the one. This is something I have yet to conquer. I instead choose to live in that fine line of despair and hope…counting on hope to lead me to him. Clearly Julia is lying to herself the whole last hour of the movie.
“Tell her I’ll marry her at 6 o’clock if she will still have me”–twist the knife why don’t you!
She kisses him…he sprints…not run but sprints to the other woman…and she gives him ammo to hate her…by admitting to the email…love is blind and makes you crazy. Proof.
But she gracefully and desperately admits to it all. And he still keeps her in his heart. That my friends is real honest to god Dawson and Joey love. That is a true friend…who…can take seconds to forgive you for all your crazy behavior. That’s love. That’s what we all need. It’s what we all want.
This movie is so right…it’s wrong.
And yet I have a love/hate relationship with the ending of this movie. Mostly love though…gives me hope. Because if Cameron Diaz can beat Julia Roberts there is hope for me.
