When I first saw the trailers for the Mr. and Mrs. Smith movie, I thought hey that looks like "hey, that looks like a good movie - kind of The War of the Roses meets Mission Impossible." And I was pretty sure the movie would be a major blockbuster.

But then Brad and Jen had to go and break up. And there were rumors of husband stealing by Angelina Jolie.

So now it's not clear how the movie will do. But I've got a theory (and no it isn't bunnies...) If people believe that the Brad and Angelina relationship has been confirmed, it's doomed for failure. (See Jersey Girl (which was a half way decent flick), Proof of Life, Eyes Wide Shut, and Vanilla Sky for examples.) Why - two reasons. 1)People get sick of hearing about hollywood couples and 2) The middle of the country doesn't think too kindly about infidelity. BUT if people believe that the Brad and Angelina relationship is just unconfirmed gossip, the movie will do REALLY well. Why? Because people will go to the movie to see the chemistry in order to determine if there is a Brad and Angelina relationship. I personally believe they have mastered tetering on the cusp of innuendo and confirmation, so the movie should do pretty well.

On an unrelated note, I have been pleasantly surprised by the reality TV offerings this summer. Yes I am a reality TV junkie. Yes I know this type of television is worthless and has contributed to the degeneration of the moral fiber of our country. Oh well, I find this stuff damn entertaining. Some of my favorites of the new stuff include "Hell's Kitchen," and "Beauty and the Geek." And then there's the old standbys, "The Supernanny" ('This behavior is UNACCEPTABLE'), "Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Inferno II," "Trading Spouses," "Bridezilla," and of course, "Queer Eye." I'm not too fond of "Hit Me Baby One More Time" (boring as all hell), "Dancing with the Stars" (also boring as all hell), "Fire Me, Please" (what's up with the laugh track), and "Britney and Kevin: Chaotic" (okay, I haven't actually seen that one but I'm not really trying to watch THAT train wreck). I'm looking forward to new installments of "Real World," "Average Joe," "I want to be a Hilton," "The Cut" (I missed it last night), "The Surreal Life," "Welcome to the Neighborhood," and "Big Brother" (which is boring but damn addictive!)

Sorry to ramble on about things completely unrelated to school, jobs and the like. This is the life of an invalid! Sad but true. I should have more interesting things to talk about soon - but more on that later.
