Hooray for Hollywood my ass

I totally meant to post about this last week; I was reminded of it today by pilarcruz. I saw this ad during either Lost or Gilmore Girls. Dave was fast forwarding through the commercials. I saw...a house. On water. And a mailbox. And two people. I was all, "OMG, rewind that. I want to see that." "You want to watch the commercial?" "YES. Do you know what that is?!"

We watch that commercial, and I'm all, "Do you know what that is? DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS?" Dave was a typical guy: "No..." "It's only freaking Il Mare in ENGLISH, isn't it?" "Wait, what?" He rewound it to watch it again.

Dude. It so obviously is the same damn movie. Only way worse. Because it has Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reaves.

I actually told my Korean teacher about it last night. She was as aghast as I am. They already shredded Shall We Dansu?, and now this? Don't even get me started on The Magnificent Seven...

Do yourself a favour...see the original. Always.

Just wait until My Sassy Girl gets Westernised next Gurinder Chadha, of all people. You think I'm irate now?
