If nothing else, making Ryan Gosling unattractive is a pretty monumental feat. But a.) Lars? Really? His name is Lars? and b.) All of his potential love-interests are quirky, elfin, stunted girl/women. Is this a Year of The Dog style story about how there's someone for everyone, even if that someone is plastic?


I don't know who Ryan Gosling is, but I saw a trailer for this picture today, while waiting for the other execrable picture I want to tell you about, and nobody in that trailer looked attractive to me. at least none of the males. I don't remember it that clearly, though. but in any case: this picture, Lars & the Real Girl, looked absolutely dire. but could it be more dire than the actual movie that followed the trailer? I'm not sure.

  • If Ayn Rand and Walter Benjamin got in a cage fight and then made up over foie gras, single malt scotch and indie pop, you'd have the delightful adventures of "That Was Probably Awkward." Plus or minus the single malt and foie gras, depending on the week's finances. But always the indie pop. Sad, stirring indie pop. And a decent happy hour.
