Disappointing movie

You know that  feeling you get when you invite people you know to a Saturday afternoon movie like, say, The Angels’ Share, thinking it would be good because of the inspiring reviews such as “Joyful … A heartwarming celebration of kindness, friendship and forgiveness” and “Blessedly funny,” but finding yourself sinking into your seat because of its crude dialog and questionable morals while leaving the theater perplexed at its receiving of a Jury Prize at Cannes and later offering to pay for dinner to ease the guilt for inviting people to sit through two hours of a disappointing film?  If so, I totally know what that’s like too! This is the second time in the last year or so I felt a little guilty for inviting people to go see a movie with me, the first being Pina.  I guess I should just watch these art house movies by myself.

    Boo…that’s no fun, watching potentially bad art house movies alone. There wouldn’t be the silver lining of commiserating with friends if it does turn out badly. 🙂 That’s what friends are for.
