How I can still manage to get a $35 charge from renting Redbox movies that are only $1 a day is beyond me. I put them in my car, meaning to return them, and forget about them until they slide out from under the seat at as I brake for a light. This morning, out slid Shutter Island. Which reminded me of Friday night with my mother. Kids are in bed, wine is poured, movie is in.
0:01 Leonardo DiCaprio is getting sea sick on a boat somewhere.
MOM: Oh, he’s sea sick. That always sucks.
0:02 Leonardo stops blowing chunks, wipes his mouth, puts on his hat.
MOM: What year is this set in?
PEEVED: I don’t know, I’ve never seen the movie before. Why don’t you watch it and find out?
MOM: Looks like the 50s.
0:03 Leo puts on his jacket
MOM: Definitely the 50s.
PEEVED: I’m sure if it is important to the plot, it will come up. Now, be quiet.
0:04 Leo heads out to the stern to talk to Ruffalo
MOM: I don’t know, maybe the 40’s- look at that tie.
PEEVED: Mom, stop talking. The remotes are out of batteries and I can’t rewind if you talk and miss something.
MOM: Oh, okay. Well, who is he? Is he a cop? Is that his partner?
PEEVED: I DON’T KNOW. STOP TALKING AND YOU’LL FIND OUT!
0:05 Leo and Ruffalo are shooting the shit
MOM: Oh, he’s a Marshall. Well what the heck are they doing on a boat?
PEEVED: Never. Seen. The. Movie.
MOM: Maybe they’re on a special assignment. I don’t see why they would be on a boat. No, it’s the 50’s.
0:20 Leo is having a discussion with a character that is pivotal to the plot.
MOM: I’m hungry, do you have any popcorn?
PEEVED: Yes, but I have no way to pause the movie. We just ate. Ssshhh!
MOM: (Walking to go raid the kitchen) Oh, okay.
PEEVED: Ma! I have no way to pause it and I’m not telling you what happens.
0:23 Leo concludes his discussion with a character that is pivotal to the plot.
MOM: (heading back in from kitchen) Oh, well, where’s the lady? What did she say?
PEEVED: She said you should sit down and shut up.
MOM: Peeved, that’s not very nice.
PEEVED: Neither is talking during the movie and leaving the room when there is a good scene on.
0:45 Intense action sequence.
MOM: (answering cell phone) Oh, hi honey, yes, I’m just watching a movie with Peeved. Shutter Island. Oh, it’s great, it’s set in the 50’s and has that cute guy – what’s his name again? – you know, from Titanic…
0:47 Intense action sequence ends.
MOM: (hanging up her cell phone) So, wait, why are they there? What happened to the other guy?
PEEVED: He was abducted by aliens.
MOM: What? I didn’t know this was a Sci-Fi movie.
PEEVED: It’s not, if you were watching, you would have known I was making that up.
MOM: I am watching. Now what are they doing?
PEEVED: (drinking copious amounts of wine)
1:47 Plot is revealing itself.
MOM: (snore, snore, muffle sleep speak, snore, snore)
PEEVED: Mom, wake up and watch the movie.
MOM: (snore, snore) I am awake. (snore, snore)
MOM: (snore, snore) I knew that was going to happen.
MOM: What a great movie.
PEEVED: Yeah, it is really good when you actually WATCH it.
