Miss L and I were browsing in Target today and I decided to check out what was on sale in the DVD area. You just never know when some classic ’80s movie is going to be marked down to $7.50 and I’m all about a good deal.
I noticed as I walked past the new releases that whatever came out on Tuesday was gone. I mean, sold out, cleaned out, the entire rack empty. Curious about what hot movie I’d missed, I moved closer to read the shelf tag.
The Sex and the City Movie.
I don’t think I could have been more surprised if one of Rob Zombie’s movies had flown out the door with actual wings. Seriously — Target sold out of SATC:TM in two days (or less)? It boggles my mind.
Actually, the fact that the show even became a movie escapes my understanding. You know why? Because I can’t stand the show. I’ve watched a handful of episodes and never got the appeal. One of my best friends loves the show beyond all reason and I initially tuned in based on her recommendation. I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, so I told her I loved it, too. In my head, I was thinking, “liar, liar, pants on fire!”
I don’t know what show she was watching but the one I saw was nothing worth tuning into again. I could not relate to any of the main characters. In fact, I really didn’t even like any of them. And I darn sure wasn’t going to pay $9.50 (before snacks) to sit through two hours in a dark theater with that crowd.
After today’s shopping excursion, I’m convinced that I’m the only woman in the country who feels this way. Which means I’ll just have to knock over some geeks on my way to grab Iron Man next week.
