|CLOCKS! 'Cause time travel that will never really be explained, but we'll be able to do that shit in the future, so let's just skim over that part, mmkay?|
My buddy Brock recommended this fine ABC Family original film, My Future Boyfriend, to add to my Netflix queue in the "ladymovies" category. When I started watching this masterpiece, I knew it needed to be blogged.
|I wrote a NOVEL, you guys.|
|"If you go back in time, this'll be an even bigger disaster than the last time I hosted the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show!"|
Also, in the future people wear bland colored clothing and don't use contractions in their speech. Uh-oh, Liz almost forgot her dinner with Richard! But Liz leaves Pax with some kid from her office that likes her. Pax is concerned that his time is running out. His bracelet thing will bring him back to the future automatically in only 14 more hours. Pax is upset that Liz and Richard are going to get engaged. I'd be upset too if my boyfriend had a diamond ring baked into a pastry to propose. Blech. Also, Pax is watching their private dinner from under a table and they discover him and it is awkward and Richard is pissed! But Liz thinks he's cute. Also meanwhile, the Secret Service is looking for Pax because he's been spending 2012 hundred dollar bills in 2011.
|"But I'm only slightly less generically attractive than that weird future guy!"|
The hippie lady from the office is all, "Liz, if you are engaged, why aren't you happy?" And she's like, "I like the future guy." And the hippie lady is like, "I knew it!" But Liz seems convinced that if you date someone for a long time and they propose, you have to get married because of inertia or something? But Fred Willard comes back to the past to retrieve Pax and gets arrested too, so they have to break out and get their bracelets back. Apparently the Secret Service and the NSA are incredibly hapless compared to the cunning of these future-ites who are now attempting to drive a car. Liz is just reassuring Richard that she's totes still into him when Pax comes to say good-bye since now he has to leave in 3 minutes. And he gives a speech about love and whatnot! He wants Liz to go back to the future with him, and it is really awkward! He says he loves her as the Secret Service comes to get him. And Fred Willard and Pax are gone now! Pax was totes telling the truth, you guys.
|Watching people be in love. And FALLING in love with each other, amirite?|
It lived up to my super-cheesy ABC Family romantic comedy expectations, so 3/5 ironic thumbs up.
*Apparently I recognize him from ten years of Seventh Heaven commercials. Of course he was on that show.
