Look What You’ve Done! A Lot Like Love??


I watched “A Lot Like Love” that day on TV3. Yes I do no have Astro at home. Boycott Astro! Haha! No lah, it is hard to subscribe when you share the place with friends, you need a collective agreement to do things πŸ˜› If I own the place I probably have it and then I will spend most of my time in front of the TV - Makan TV, Minum TV, Tidur TV. LOL!

I was reminded of “When Harry Met Sally” while watching this movie. After all, “When Harry Met Sally” is a legendary name in this particular genre - romantic comedy. If “When Harry Met Sally” raises the questions “Can men and women ever just be friends?” or “Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?” but in “A Lot Like Love” it asks the question “How long it takes for you to fall in love?”

In this movie, a very long seven years!! Well, it takes some people years to fall in love at first sight, I guess. “A Lot Like Love” is not a cheap copy of “When Harry Met Sally” anyway. The story is very different.

In “When Harry Met Sally” the grand denouement of their long in the making couplehood happened when ‘Harry’ and ‘Sally’ finally do the ‘deed’ after his attempts to comfort her go one step too further than either character had anticipated. If you remember, this is where it all gets ugly for both characters until they finally realize they really do love each other and very much do deserve each other.

We moviegoers knew going in that they will end up together so it was really a question of how and what would happen when they finally did hook up. Anything else regarding the characters or their lives was just gravy on the side that did not distract from Cupid’s grand design.

In “A Lot Like Love”, ‘Oliver’ and ‘Emily’ (Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet respectively) do the ‘deed’ practically from the first moment they meet and from there you are just left wondering why exactly they are not together. Throughout the years they keep meeting and they either do it or almost end up doing it but never quite making that connection that would lead to anything lasting.

Somehow they fall in love but they still can not seem to get their bullshit together long enough to really be an item. (I was getting bored at this point. How longer of this is going on??) She is going to find herself and he is got this asinine diaper.com business he is trying to build. A lot is made of ‘Oliver’s master plan’ so that you are made to care about it nearly as much as his non-relationship with ‘Emily’.

“A Lot Like Love” deals with issues in real life. There are many people out there who feel pressured with the “master plan” of having a career, a wife/husband by the age of 30. Any of you out there can relate to this? πŸ˜› I do not know a lot of guys that would continue following a girl around for that long. What are the odds? Hmmm…..If you think that love equals 10 dates over the span of 5 years and no sincere emotion then yes, this story was a lot like love. Muahahahahahaha!

Lesson of the day : Life is indeed short and a lot can happen when you are not paying attention. Enjoy every moment you can, and take some risks or you will be looking back on an awful lot of regret.

ps: I think I still love “When Harry Met Sally” more.

pss: I love this song very much I must post it up!


Jet - Look What You’Ve Done

Take my photo off the wall
If it just won’t sing for you
‘Cause all that’s left has gone away
And there’s nothing there for you to prove

Oh, look what you’ve done
You’ve made a fool of everyone
Oh well, it seems likes such fun
Until you lose what you had won

Give me back my point of view
‘Cause I just can’t think for you
I can hardly hear you say
What should I do, well you choose

Oh, look what you’ve done
You’ve made a fool of everyone
Oh well, it seems likes such fun
Until you lose what you had won

Oh, look what you’ve done
You’ve made a fool of everyone
A fool of everyone
A fool of everyone

Take my photo off the wall
If it just won’t sing for you
‘Cause all that’s left has gone away
And there’s nothing there for you to do

Oh, look what you’ve done
You’ve made a fool of everyone
Oh well, it seems likes such fun
Until you lose what you had won

Oh, look what you’ve done
You’ve made a fool of everyone
A fool of everyone
A fool of everyone

    hmm.. cant give comment on the two movies coz haven’t watch it b4..

    ‘There are many people out there who feel pressured with the β€œmaster plan” of having a career, a wife/husband by the age of 30.’

    hmm… in my humble opinion, would say that the pressure of having a career comes from wanting the best.. the best job, the best position, the best company etc.. because of kiasu-ness. the forces of the society is strong, which we know as the rat race. we’ll be competing in the race in no time if we are unaware of ourselves, our goals, purpose, and mission. we do not just want a career or a job, we want to fulfill our mission and purpose. eg: if we are meant to be a drain sweeper, then that’s our purpose.. and that’s uniquely why we are here.. to fulfill our duty to be a drain sweeper so that the world will be a better place because we embraced what we are meant to be. being a drain sweeper is more than a career, more than a job.. it’s a way of life.. it’s the reason why he/she is born.

    err… full of crap.. lol!!

    –> that’s is one super long crap drumsticks! πŸ˜› our mission in this world is to copulate no? the basic, foremost existence of human is survival. in other to survive, the stronger ones prevail over the weaklings. two things are sure in live. tax and death. to ensure human will not extinct anytime soon we must reproduce, hence all the love bla bla bla.. just the process, side gravy of the bigger mission πŸ˜› the mission is to ‘connect’ with each other. kkkkkkakakakakakaa! the rest we should not worry then rotflmao! (i am quite good at dishing craps too heh!)

    but the grand masterplan of career and wife and house and all… well, sometimes, we do have to break the rule.

    –> ehem, how many dates you went for zewt? πŸ˜› yes, sometimes we do have to break the rule! life is no fun if you never break any rule πŸ˜›

    Now I remember what that movie was about…haha

    …and that master plan before 30, I had a friend whose master plan was that before 25. He dated his wife and married in less than a year. They now have two kids and I still haven’t even met the wife! Our mutual friends are mostly still single, or at least unmarried….

    Do you have such master plan?

    –> i have master bedroom but no master plan. rough plan have lah. planning is not my virtue really… i suck at planning.. must improve myself on this. do you have such master plan then?
