Thoughts on The Opposite of Sex

-Christina Ricci, why can't you do more stuff like this? Damn.

-Lisa Kudrow should've gotten an Oscar nomination, okay? Shut up.

-I can't tell, if you have one perfectly normal gay guy and one dimwitted bisexual guy in a movie, would Johnny Galecki's character count as offesnive? I hate political correctness, it's such a pain in the ass.

-This is one case, my friend, where voiceovers kind of work, okay.

I should re-watch this ASAP.
I love that line Lisa Kudrow says about The Sound of Music.
Coolest bitch ever! And yes she was robbed, not of a nod but the Oscar itself!

Just from memory,Lisa Kudrow remembering her mom's comment about gays: "'They have such lonely lives'... She said that to(me)the fat girl."
What I most loved about this movie was what a douchebag dick Galecki was, and when he got the t***y twister in the car from that nice guy he was blackmailing. He needed to get slapped around like a cheap floozy in an old noir film.
Well, and I also liked Ivan Sergei.

I re-watched it after I graduated college. Let's just say it didn't age well. But then I should give it a third chance since it does tackle the super narrow views on homosexuality in the 90's.

And Ivan Sergei was cute. Why is he not famous?

Kudrow in an Oscar-worthy role? Now that I gotta see.

"And Ivan Sergei was cute. Why is he not famous?" My sentiment exactly. Same question applies to Henry Cavill, Lee Pace, etc.

Jose: Robbed, dammit!

Rob: That was excellent.

Okinawaassault: Because fame be a cruel mistress.

Flixchatter: Lee Pace is famous. I mean, people are aware of him...
