I strolled out to the mailbox today to retrieve my Netflix movies, the better to facilitate keeping my broke ass at home.
I was expecting two movies, but when I opened up the mailbox, I saw three. Huh, I thought, they must have mailed me an extra copy of the Futurama movie, which I mailed back this morning.
Not so. I opened all three movies, found the two that I was expecting…and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.
I had no desire to see it, so I’d never even put it in my queue. I thought maybe it was for one of my neighbors, but no, addressed to me, sent from the same shipping center as my other movies.
I mean, perhaps the fact that one of my other movies arriving today was lesbian cult hit The Incredibly True Adventures of 2 Girls in Love (we are not a people who are economical with our titles) might have tipped Netflix off to the fact that I’m a gay lesbian, and made them suggest this as a related movie.
Generally, however, suggestions of related movies are not mailed to you as an extra film, particularly when you have not actually requested them.
I suppose, since I really have nothing better to do, I might as well watch it, if only to see how bad it is: As bad as you’d think, not as bad as you’d think, or even worse than you’d think.
I’ll post here probably tomorrow with the results of this experiment.
