The Kids Are All Right


What in the hell is going on with artificial insemination and movies today?! We recently saw this ill-conceived concept (teehee... get it?) crash and burn into a pile of stinking shite covered ashes when we watched The Back-up Plan (2010).

Now we've got The Kids Are All Right (2010) and The Switch (2010) coming this year. Yes folks - it's the year of uber-planned pregnancies.

I have to say, this one might deliver... hehe, there I go again wit da puns! Ok. I'm over it. The Kids Are All Right, starring Mark Ruffalo (a supremely underrated actor loved by US!) and Julianne "I need a tan" Moore spins the art-sem plot a 'lil different. In case you didn't catch that, my new nickname for this genre of film is now art-sem, short for artificial insemination. Duh.

Anyhoooooo. Here's a little plot synopsis care of IMDB:

Two children conceived by artificial insemination bring their birth father into their family life.

So it's sorta after the fact. Waaay after the fact. This might just work. We'll see it, if for no other reason than our shared burning lusty love for the Ruffster. Interesting bits: Julianne Moore and Annette Benning play a couple, and Mia Wasikowska (who plays Alice in Burton's recent adaptation of Alice in Wonderland) plays their daughter. We're actually interested in seeing what 'Alice' can do outside her void performance in Burton's most recent remake.

But please Hollywood... consider this our plea... STOP with the art-sem flicks!!

It's weird you guys, because I really rarely have crushes on Hollywood actors but I admit to a tiny one on Mark Ruffalo. Yes indeed! :)

Um...Bening? You seemed to have forgotten Beining. Why? We'll never know.
