In trying to find something newsworthy, I stumbled upon this post about the Booksmarts announcement. It’s not very insightful and is very negative, but I was at least entertained.
Ugh, I hate Natalie Portman. I don’t know why — maybe it’s because she’s an actress/Harvard alum/Vegan shoe designer/Sean Penn homewrecker and NOW wants to be a producer. It’s like, Natalie, stop with the overachieving already. A Vegan shoe line? SO pretentious. You know you’re not designing those compost and bamboo reed shoes; you’re just putting your name on them.
The premise sounds extremely lame, and I’m not just saying that because Natalie Portman bugs me. It’s not so much that it sounds lame, because I will totally watch it if it’s on Lifetime on a rainy Sunday. It just sounds like every other high school movie ever made (Super Bad, She’s All That, American Pie, etc). I’m surprised she’s not doing something more indie… Of course, that would probably irk me even more. Natalie, you can do no right in my book.
Oh, and Superbad and American Pie are a total blast 😛
