On Wednesdays We Wear Pink Day is a Success! Thanks to YOU!!!

On Wednesday's We Wear Pink Say is a success!  Hooray!!!  I asked my friends time and time again if they would celebrate the 10th anniversary of Mean Girls by wearing pink, and most of my friends delivered!  Anyone who took a selfie while wearing pink is featured in this post.  If you would still like to be part of it, you can still send me your pictures.  It's a work in progress!  

Best.  Shirt.  Ever.

He purdy.  But I'm biased...

Random Poll(s): Regina George Edition

Regina George is flawless.  

She has two Fendi purses and a silver Lexus.

I hear her hair's insured for $10,000.

I heard she does car commercials in Japan.

Her favorite movie is Varsity Blues.

One time, John Stamos on a plane.  And he told her she was pretty.

I'm curious...

But when it comes to boys, Regina has her pick.  Aaron Samuels is her boyfriend, but Shane Oman is her boytoy.  Aaron seems more wholesome, but Shane is a total jock (and apparently all right with cheating).  This one is tough.

The Time Has Come. 'On Wednesdays We Wear Pink Day' is Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the big day! 

In case you haven't heard yet, the 10th anniversary of Mean Girls is tomorrow, so everyone needs to wear pink tomorrow!  Since, you know, "On Wednesdays, we wear pink!"  

If you were skeptical of participating in Movie MoJoe's pink apparel day, I thought I should let you know that if you don't wear pink, you will probably get one, if not all, of these reactions from me.


And you'll be all like...

If you would like to participate in On Wednesdays We Wear Pink Day, take a picture of yourself wearing pink and send it to me either via Facebook or on Twitter.  Follow me on Twitter and tweet me at @JoeyMoser83. 

Cue the Lightsaber Circle Jerk. 'Star Wars Episode VII' Official Cast Announced.

Well, well.  There's finally a cast list for J. J. Abram's Star Wars sequel, the still untitled Episode VII.  It's going to be cool to see these fresh faces alongside veterans Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill.  Even Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhew will return as R2-D2, C3PO, and Chewbacca, respectively.  The details of the characters have yet to be released, but at least we have some names!

John Boyega was previously seen in Attack the Block, and he will play Jesse Owens in the upcoming Race.  Daisy Ridley was in the television series Youngers and Silent Witness.  Up-and-coming actors Oscar Isaac and Domhall Gleeson are also part of the cast, and Girls' Adam Driver will play the villain (the one piece of casting news we knew going into this announcement).  Max von Sydow also joins Abrams' entry which is ridiculously exciting.  

J. J. Abrams released this statement along with the casting news:

"We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars Episode VII.  It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again.  We start shooting in a couple weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

'The Other Woman': Sisterhood of the Traveling Idiots

You know...I am more disappointed more than anything in my hatred of The Other Woman.  Did I expect Shakespeare?  Of course not.  I didn't even think that it would hold a candle to the similarly themed First Wives' Club, but I didn't think it would snuff out the candle, melt it down, and burn me with it.  Don't insult my intelligence, and you're all better than this.  

Not every female empowerment comedy can end with a glorious musical rendition of "You Don't Own Me," but I expect an ounce of intelligence.  Cameron Diaz plays Carly, a high-powered attorney who thinks she found the perfect guy in Mark, played by Danish hottie Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.  By the way, we know that she's a lawyer, because every time a character enters her office, the camera swings down to show the company's title that is inexplicably located outside the elevator.  Not kidding--every fucking time someone walks in.  

Carly's ideal romance is short-lived, however, when she goes to Mark's house to surprise him, and his wife Kate (Leslie Mann) opens the door.  Kate eventually puts two and two together, and she basically begins stalking Carly.  For once, the other woman (the title!) distances herself away from the married man, but she is heartily pursued by Kate and her fountain of questions.  Mann, who never really gets a chance to shine away from the dutiful direction of her husband Judd Apatow, is sad as Kate.  You want to feel for the scorned wife, and you do at the beginning.

As Kate and Carly begin to bond over their shared disdain for Mark, something happens.  Kate's dog shits on Carly's pristine wooden floors.  No, I mean, we seriously get to witness a giant dog take a steaming crap.  Poop exits a canine ass and the camera was there to capture it all!  That was when I knew this wasn't going to be the sugary confection that I hoped it would be.  Oh!  And then something else happens.  Carly gives Mark laxatives while they are at a restaurant, and he has to excuse himself from going home with her.  It would be funny if they showed Nikolaj just running to the restroom.  The scene could end there.  But no.  No no no.  We have to see him run into the stall and hear the glorious work of a sound editor at play.  You're behind, The Other Woman.  Taking a huge dump is so 1994.  Way to rip off Dumb & Dumber.  

Kate Upton is in this as well.  I am going to try my best not to dump all over her, because, let's face it, if Brooklyn Decker can be in a movie, so can she!  Kate and Carly discover that Mark has another mistress.  They take off to the Hamptons, and discover Mark lounging around with Upton's Amber.  These two besties sit Amber down and tell her how much of a douche Mark really is.  She can't believe it!  Amber spends the rest of the night with these two women, and it apparently doesn't phase Mark at all.  He only escaped his wife and his mistress to hang out with his newest, youngest piece of tail, but he clearly isn't concerned that she isn't around.  Beach side masturbation for Mark, I guess.

Eventually, near the end, Kate decides to let go, and there's a scene where she throws her wedding ring in the ocean.  It's very Carrie Bradshaw throwing her phone from Sex and the City.  Carly and Amber join her on the beach (does no one do anything by themselves in this movie?) and they share a hug while they look at the ocean.  Fuck you.  

I don't recall a movie that wasted so much potential.  The script is awful, the performances are shrill, and it loses its way before it realizes what it's doing.  Just don't go.
