I don’t know if Rapunzel is officially a Disney Princess yet, but I’m sure that as far as the Disney Royal Family is concerned, she must at least be the hair apparent.*tumbleweed*

I’m sure I can’t be the only person who feels the whole process would’ve been a lot less painful for everyone if Harrison Ford had just shot Rachel McAdams when she came to him with that job offer in the first place. I mean, he had the gun right there and everything.

As I mentioned in my write-up for We Need To Talk About Kevin, I always try to write a review of a film in the context of what was happening as I watched it. So with apologies for the overshare, I’d like to point out that I watched Bridesmaids with my right thumb wrapped in a tea towel that was serving as a tourniquet, having just sliced it open on a can of tomatoes. I had to pause the film every half an hour or so to see if the bleeding had stopped, which it hadn’t (during the film, I mean – you’ll be relieved, I’m sure, to learn that it stopped a short while after the film was over), so I was feeling extremely sorry for myself and really not in the mood to be amused by anything. It’s testament, then, to the quality of Bridesmaids that despite my gloomy demeanour and my blood-soaked digit, I still howled with laughter on several occasions while I was watching it.
