"We came over to sit"

** Spoiler alert...I'm going to be giving away the ending of "Lars and the Real Girl".....

I just realised that the climactic scene in "Lars and the Real Girl" uses almost the same idea as "Tootsie." The figment of the protagonist's imagination is standing in the way of his "real" relationships, so he must "kill" this "antagonist" so as to be able to move on with his life.

Oh..and if you go to 3:24 you can see my favourite scene which always makes me think of the crafty bloggers I know.



(P.S. I'll still post about Thelma and Louise's glimmer of hope...maybe tomorrow)

Wait. Is that the movie about the man and his blow-up doll?

After I saw that doco on SBS about men and their 'relationships' with those latex dolls and the scene involving discussions about how to clean them that featured a toilet brush I can't bring myself to see it. *shudder*

Kim..it's totally not about a sex doll...it's actually a fabulous film!

But now I do feel a bit sick about that toilet brush thing...

Ugh...

I so agree with you E, it's one of my favourite films - but I saw it under duress! I was just like Kim but of course it is not at all about a blow up doll, adn I love the crafty blogger scene too :-)
