Neither.

My girl cannot wait for Scott Pilgrim, the only movie she has been excited for all summer. She probably hasn't even heard of the Julia Roberts movie, so its a no-brainer what I'll be seeing Friday night.

I've never understand the whole "wife/girlfriend" dragging the guy along to see an awful movie. I want to see a movie she doesn't want to see I go with my friends, she wants to see a movie I have no interest in she goes with her friends. Not a big deal.

I dunno...he just looks like an older version of himself from when he was in his prime.

My GF & I take turns picking. If I have to see a movie once in a while that I'm not interested in, big fuckin' deal.

We have very similar taste in movies, but once in a while I'll watch a RomCom with her.

Compromise.

If the relationship is worth a damn, you never need to "hope" for it.

My wife and mother-in-law want to see The Expendables this weekend, but is it wrong of me that I would rather see Scott Pilgrim?

Let's see...the odds of going to Expendibles and getting laid = some very small number, while the odds of going to see EPL (and going one's best not to complain the entire time or fall asleep) and getting laid = some number that is significantly higher.

That's the equation for most men in a relationship. You do the math.

Is this the first ever box office battle between the Roberts siblings?

My wife went with me to The Expendables and loved it. When we got home she told me to find some Jet Li and Jason Statham movies to watch with her this weekend.

The wife would rather see expendables than eat, pray love.

But when there are 'girl' movies that she wants to see, that is when she and her girlfriends go out and watch. She knows I have no interest in seeing some of that.
