Skinny Jeans and Eclipse, THE MOVIE by Bridget

humptydI am not a fan of the skinny jean. The skinny jean was a look made popular by that inimitable fashion icon Humpty Dumpty. He was one of the first to put together (possibly with the help of all the king’s horses and all the king’s men) the black magic and physics involved in the skinny jean. Only through much struggle were they able to create a pant that gives a person such a dramatic tiny-legged, ginormous arse look.

Elipse, the movie, was rampant with skinny jeans. Bella’s pants were an unpleasant distraction from the otherwise visually stunning movie filled with lots of guys without shirts on.

Other than the distraction of the pants, I quite liked Eclipse, the Movie. There was plenty of action, and, of course, all of those guys without shirts  on. They even strayed from the Bella Would Do Anything for Love storyline and put in a few bits about independence and how she wants to be changed for her and not for Edward.

My favorite parts of the movie were the snatches of humor that popped up now and then.

Random bits quoted from memory, not verbatim, in no particular older  –

“Where I’m from getting married is how you say, ‘I love you.’” “Where I’m from, getting married at my age is how you say, ‘I got knocked up.’” (Edward to Bella, Bella to Edward)

“Doesn’t he own any shirts?” (Edward about Jacob)

“You know I’m hotter than you.” (Jacob to Edward)

“I’m starting to like him better now.” (Bella’s dad after she’s informed him that Edward is “Old School” and that she’s a virgin)

Also, pretty much anything the dad says or does had me laughing.

I thought these little chunklets of funny broke up the trauma-drama nicely.

Has anyone else seen the movie?

    For me, the big question is, can you do the Humpty Dance in skinny jeans?
