Redhook got dragged to a chick flick last night. It wasn’t exactly his idea. In fact, he actually wanted to see something different but ““ due to circumstances beyond his control, he ended up at a chick flick. An abysmal one at that.
Okay, nothing against chick flicks. They’ve got their place in the movie universe, and they make good date movies. But The Ugly Truth was pretty ugly. So ugly that we wouldn’t recommend going, unless you have a thing for Katherine Heigl.
Don’t take our word for it. Just look at the numbers: Rotten Tomatoes gave it a mere 15%, with 21 fresh reviews and 121 rotten. But ratings aside, this movie has grossed over $77 million dollars at the box office as of this post. More than the mere $18 million grossed by 500 Days of Summer ““ a romantic comedy that’s clever, offbeat and reportedly worth sitting through.
That, friends, is the real ugly truth.
Alright, now here’s the good news: date movies don’t have to suck. Take your special someone to see Jaws tonight, 8/20 at the Redhook Brewery in Woodinville. It’s part of our Moonlight Cinema series. Bring a couple lawn chairs and watch people get eaten by a shark on our 55 foot screen while you drink beer. We promise it will make up for all the bad chick flicks you’ve ever had to sit through. Gates and taps open at 6pm.
