What? Huh? What?!
They are making yet another movie based on a book with no plot whatsoever. They (as in Hollywood folk) are making another movie based on only a title. A title of a book that you would find at a garage sale. Or, maybe it would just be in a box in front of someone’s house with a sign that says, “Free books. Take one.” But, there’s a good chance no one would take the books so the books would eventually get rained on, moldy, and finally, thrown away.
The next book to get the He’s Just Not That Into You and What To Expect When You’re Expecting treatment is the highly-relevant and still-a-topic-of-cocktail-party-conversation-everywhere, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. Reese Witherspoon is starring in it. (Reese! You should have called me to discuss this.)
I think the next two titles to be turned into movies will be What Color Is Your Parachute? and a book my mom had that Jane Fonda wrote that introduced the world to aerobics. You totally know the book. She was wearing a pink leotard and had a thing wrapped around her forehead. (If you know the actual name for that hair accessory please let me know. It would be called a headband except headbands go over one’s head and this goes over the forehead. A mid-headband?)
Yes, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, And Hollywood Producers Are Pulling Movie Ideas Out Of Their Uranuses.
UPDATED TWO SECONDS AFTER I WROTE THIS: Very important news. Jane Fonda wasn’t wearing the thing around her head. I looked online. She was wearing a red and black striped leotard. Olivia Newton John was wearing a pink leotard and a thing around her head on the cover of her “Let’s Get Physical” record that I listened to over and over and over. Please, please accept my apology.
