The Butterfly Effect

What could’ve been a great and clever thriller is, well not quite ruined, but certainly affected by Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of the lead role. When I say portrayal I really mean.. well I’m not sure as it seems he just kinda turned up on set each day and played himself in that “Whooa.. dude!” kind role. The idea behind the movie, a man who blacked out events from his traumatic childhood then finds himself able to go back and change them, isn’t new, but is quite cleverly handled. In fact the story almost makes you forget just how average the acting is. Probably one to watch on a lazy Saturday.

Last night, our ‘celebration’ trip to the cinema was to see The Butterfly Effect (starring Mr Demi Moore I think….). It was…. yeah, it was.. it was a movie. He was awful, the plot was sketchy, the script was ropey. Shame really as the main premise of the movie was OK. Mind you after someone saying they had walked out because of it’s “sadistic sickness” I guess I should’ve know better. Anyway, Louise was keen and I’ve not gotten through 7 years of marriage without learning the value of compromise.

Ho hum.

Ohh and for the record, Louise and I have been together for ten years, engaged for three, married for seven. We met when we were 15 (first love… awwww…). The ducklings (see yesterday’s post) were very young. Not sure how you age a duckling to be honest. Suffice to say there were at the fluffy cute stage.
