The Perfect Date Movie

Last night Ryan and I watched "Letters To Juliet" after we put the kids to bed.  Ryan exercised great self-control and only snickered here and there.  And just groaned once or twice.  When it was over, he gave me "that" look-- you know the one a woman gets after making her husband sit through an insufferable chick flick.  He sat through that mumbo jumbo and deserves a little somethin' (wink, wink) for the effort. 

He was also storing up his "brilliance" in the form of witty one-liners and re-writes of how to make the movie more "date friendly" and really wanted to tell them to me.  I, on the other hand, had basked in the romance of the movie and didn't want to hear them.

"What?  How are my ideas not romantic?"

Yah, you are always romantic, Ryan.  Snickering during a chick flick is so romantic.

Then Ryan came up with his Best Idea Ever.  He has the sure-fire way to turn any chick flick into a movie to be enjoyed by both the male and female viewers.  Just two words.

These two word:  "....And Zombies."

Yep, those two words could make any girlie movie into something to be enjoyed by men.

Sense and Sensibility and Zombies

Jane Eyre and Zombies

Twilight and Zombies

The Little Mermaid and Zombies

Bleak House and Zombies

White Christmas and Zombies

And let's not forget Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Too bad someone already used that one.

But Ryan was on a roll.  There could even be:

Rambo and Zombies

Terminator and Zombies

The possibilities are endless.  Welcome to the new age of date movies.
