Mean Betty on Jennifer and Julia
The box office doesn’t lie, darlings.
Good morning, poppets! Mean Betty hopes you all had a wonderful weekend! Did you not go to The Switch? And last weekend, did you avoid Eat Pray Love in favor of, oh, a Jersey Shore rerun?
If so, sweethearts, you are like millions of other American women, who stayed away from the multiplex in droves just so they wouldn’t have to see Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts twinkle their high-paid way through yet another “winsome” film.
As everyone knows–except, possibly, unborn alien babies on Mars–Ms. Roberts plays a “real-life” author who embarks on a wildly adventurous trip through Italy, India and Indonesia with the help of a $200,000 book advance. And Ms. Aniston “portrays” a beautiful, “upscale” single woman who wants a baby, gosh darn it. Except that she ends up with the wrong sperm donor—a hottie ex-boyfriend she doesn’t “like” anymore. Bwhahaha! Such a merry mixup!
