Speed dating movie summary
Sadly, the first event we booked for got cancelled due to lack of men (a harsh reminder of that man deficit that exists in the Mother City – where there are 7 women to every man or something along those lines!) I think we’ve all watched enough movies to understand the concept of speed dating – 5- minute dates with a bunch of random guys/girls.And it’s even more of a pleasure to see Blythe Danner in a good movie. The actress claims she’s always been more at home on the stage than in films, despite the fact that her combined TV and motion picture credits total over 100.Still, this terrific, attractive actress hasn’t had too many leading-lady star turns in her filmography, and her most recent screen work has involved being a stolid second or third banana to the likes of Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller in the increasingly dire comedies spawned by 2000’s “Meet The Parents.” The descriptives surrounding “I’ll See You In My Dreams” might read like trigger warnings to a dyspeptic movie maven.Most tend to be somewhat comical and then maybe there is one that you can’t tear away yourself from when that bell rings.
So a couple of weeks ago I signed myself and a male friend of mine up for a speed-dating event organised by SMARTDate at Slug and Lettuce River Club in Observatory.But she’s a bit disconnected from her friends, because she’s opted to live in a house of her own, and after the dog is gone, her life’s a little more lonely.Disorder enters in the form of a black rat in the house; Carol asks the new pool-cleaning guy, Lloyd (Martin Starr), to investigate.(Source: Thinkstock images)The clock ticked fast as 27-year-old Sahil* enthusiastically narrated his ‘job’ as a sniper shooter to the lady sitting across the table from him.
She was equally involved in the story that would allow Sahil to professionally handle a sniper gun, and even found a way to place herself in there somewhere.
It seems like the technologically savvy way of doing things doesn’t really work for an old-fashioned girl like me.
