Happy Halloween (tomorrow)! But for our workplace purposes, you get the drift. It’s Friday and the weekend’s here and gee, what’ll you do for fun? Will you trick or treat? Will you see one of the (few) movies opening this weekend? If you’re curious, here’s the deal…not tons of brand new films opening because we’ve still got a few weeks before the big blockbuster holiday stuff that falls in the TCMZ (Thanksgiving/Christmas Movie Zone) …as in New Moon, 2012, A Christmas Carol, Avatar, etc… But for now, your main choices are as follows. There is 1) This Is It, the Michael Jackson documentary. 2) Gentlemen Broncos, the latest from Jared Hess who made Napoleon Dynamite. I saw it and while I realize I am easily 20-30 years older than the target audience, I did find Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) really funny in it. Perhaps you’ll see Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day which is the sequel to the cult hit B.S.(1) — still starring Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus. Then we have another scary movie: House of the Devil which is getting lots of critical acclaim. Or perhaps you’ll just go see Paranormal Activity and continue to make that flick one of the most profitable pictures ever! If you do see something, let us know what you think.
In the meantime, all this TV stuff got me wondering — which naturally, does lead to a poll. Because I was watching a Friends rerun. Still funny. A show I was quite keen on. And I know now that the girls have all done really well of late. Courteney Cox has a hit show, Cougar Town. Jennifer Aniston’s got a slew of movies, she’s one of America’s faves and her lovelife is daily tabloid fodder. Their costar, the lovely Lisa Kudrow is also about to guest star on Cougar Town.
So the Friends gals are really busy these days. Which leads me to wonder…what about the guys? Oh sure, everybody has a few misfires. But my question for you today is which of these guys has the stamina (and the chops) to survive the curse of the hit sitcom?
Voice your choice in today’s featured poll and tell us which male Friend has another hit ahead?
1) Matthew Perry
2) Matt LeBlanc
3) David Schwimmer
