Made of Honor

Made of Honor
Made of Honor revolves around Tom and Hannah, who have been platonic friends for 10 years. He's a serial dater, while she wants marriage but hasn't found Mr. Right. Just as Tom is starting to think that he is relationship material after all, Hannah gets engaged. When she asks Tom to be her "maid" of honor, he reluctantly agrees just so he can attempt to stop the wedding and woo her.

I guess I've been a fan of Patrick Dempsey since his teeny bopper days. Loved his teen flicks, especially Can't Buy Me Love. His big comeback on Grey's Anatomy didn't interest me, none whatsoever. I don't know, maybe it's because he looked too old and worn out in the series, even though a lot of people seemed to render him "too hot" and "dreamy". Guess that's why he was tagged as Mr. Dreamy there, duh Avy.

Anyway, talking about the film. I saw the poster at the movies and became really drawn to it. Because, again he was the lead character. Anyway, I didn't wait for a dvd copy on it from one of my favorite pirated dvd stores. (Again, I am not ashamed to say that I do buy pirated dvd copies.) So I basically downloaded it through Azureus again, which never fails to amaze me. Got to watch it the day after I finished downloading it. Not exactly a clear copy but hey, as long as I can hear them and see them, it's fine with me.

The movie seemed to be too fast-forward. Didn't show exactly how Hannah had come to accept the marriage proposal from Colin. Somehow, throughout the movie, it makes you think that maybe Hannah was up to something. Trying to setup Tom to let him show his true feelings for her. But then again, maybe it was just me thinking that. Anyway, I did some of sort of research regarding Patrick Dempsey (playing Tom), and he was a juggler before. So that juggling with the plates thing he did in one scene wasn't choreographed, nor was he even trained for it. (Too much information) His guy friends were all so supportive about him trying to win back Hannah. Helping him out in memorizing all what needs to be know about being "the best made of honor" there ever was.
Then again, there was never any depth to the characters. I guess I expected too much from it, just remembered that it is just a romantic-comedy flick. But still, a feel good movie. So if ever you want to watch this, make sure you have your friends along with you. Guy friends or girl friends.

I'm giving this movie 3.5 stars.


Somehow, I became too excited about going back to school. And expected too much from the course. How unfortunate for me to have the same professor on the 2 major subjects I took. I don't think I can even learn anything from her other than how old her son is and how old she was when she first learned to ride a bike. Some people would talk about their lives and their experiences but of course with a lesson at the end. But with her, it's just different. It's like reading a blog filled with nothing but ramblings. Nothing to learn from. I didn't know that she'd be like a teacher in secondary level, where the teacher would mostly just read it off a book. Even though she's reading it through powerpoint presentation (techie professor), she's sort of just translating it in Tagalog. Where in fact, we do understand simple English.

I don't care which universities, colleges or school she has taught at already, it doesn't even show in the way she handles the class. I was thinking of someone who often speaks in riddles, makes the class THINK and not just read and memorize. Oh expectations.

I know I've exerted too much effort in getting all my paperworks done, school records and all those stuff passed to them, but it seems like I'm wasting my time with all of this. I guess, going back to school wasn't exactly a good idea. Oh well.

Then again, at work. My colleague, who happens to be either too naive or just wants to test me, keeps questioning about my sexuality and my experiences. Which of course is a bit awkward, but good thing is, she's decent enough to ask me about those in private. It's also funny how almost everyone at work is very much intrigued and interested in knowing who I actually have a crush on. So much for office romance.

As for me, I can only remember seeing Patrick Dempsey pre-Grey's Anatomy. The title of the movie escapes me, but I can recall it had Dustin Hoffman and Renee Russo in it. And Patrick Dempsey was this druggie that got infected by an ebola virus-like strain after being bitten by a monkey, and proceeded to spread the deadly virus across America.

Amazing how, throughout the years, Patrick seems to sport exactly the same hairstyle he had in "that" movie. :)
