Re: Dumbest Scene Ever in a Movie
I can't stand Pearl Harbor, but for different reasons than most here. When it came out, my wife and I were still dating, and we dated long distance. She lived in Manhattan, KS and I lived in Cincinnati. We would make trips back and forth as often as we could and we called and emailed every day as well. She had just come to Cincinnati for a weekend. I had just been in Kansas the previous weekend and had proposed out there. So we had been engaged for about a week at the time and seeing her off at the airport wasn't easy. At least then (before 9/11) you could go to the gate without a ticket to see people onto the plane. So we're at the gate, newly engaged lovebirds that can't let go of one another, and then she has to get on the plane at the last minute. The plane takes off and I head back to the parking lot at CVG, suddenly feeling very lonely because I realize I can't talk to her until she gets off the plane in KC.
I figure that a movie is just the answer to get my mind off romantic topics for a few hours and I look in the paper for the listings. Wow, Pearl Harbor is showing in an hour. A war movie will be just the thing, a guy movie with action and violence to get the testosterone flowing. (I hadn't read the review.) Well, needless to say, the film did not do what I wanted it to do. The last thing I needed was all the romantic stuff in there. I left the theater disappointed because I had different expectations going in and I haven't watched it since.
