It's not the 17 year coma I find to be ridiculous. It's the whole waking up to find out you had a kid while in a coma thing.

More ridiculous than a genie in a bottle???

Actually, giving birth while in a coma has happened.

A more recent example of a show that requires significant suspension of disbelief would be WILFRED on FX. A man and his talking dog (a guy in a dog costume.)

If it's well written, maybe it'll work, but the premise just encourages so many bad sitcom jokes. And again, I think she's miscast here. Ricci is 33 and looks fairly young. Combined with her small stature, it's going to be difficult to believe that she could have a 17 year old daughter.

Now that Christina Applegate (42) is free, maybe they could do a quick switch before they film this thing. Her, I'd believe in the part.

I like Ricci, but even her high forehead and ample bosom couldn't make me watch Pan-Am. But I am wearing out my third copy of "Black Snake Moan".

:P


Just ordered that movie. Thanx for the tip.

Not going to bother to look it up, but there was a movie that C. Ricci did which was similar. C.R. was an auto accident victim, and Liam Neeson was the "doctor" (does anyone other than Samuel L. Jackson work more than this guy?)... where C.R. wakes up on the table while Liam's working on her. Turns out he's a funeral director preparing to embalm her, all the while she's questioning him as to whether it's appropriate since she's not dead. It's more of a "guy who can talk to the dead" movie, than her actually moving and talking, where anyone else can see her, but he's the only guy in the mortuary, so she hasn't failed to communicate with anyone else, has no evidence she's dead, and won't accept it. This was a straight-to-video film (I think?) and obviously no-one else has seen it...

I just looked it up... After.Life... It actually seems like it might be interesting. I added it to my WatchList at Amazon for when it becomes free for Prime members.

Even as a corpse, Ricci is hella sexy in a red nightie. How she can be so cold and so hot at the same time, I dunno. Amazon streaming has a free two-minute preview that conveys a good sense of the essense of the film.

I watched it on one of the movie channels, don't know which one.

Not too good, IMHO.

I'm sure the disc is not the only thing you're wearing out.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I've seen it and thought it was a good movie.

But if you're watching it for what I think you are, you'd like After.Life too...

Ricci has exited the show and the production has been pushed back. Looks like this Girlfriend is gonna stay in a comma for a little while longer.

bye bye Ricci

I guess being in a "comma" is better than being in a "colon.":lol:

...Ricci is an unpleasant-looking plague on TV...

CR is still more attractive than 99% of adult women. If perfection is the goal, most folks would still be very lucky to be with her. She is certainly not going to make Maxim's top hot 100 list, but then neither are 7 billion minus a hundred others.

If I had to think of the worst thing I could say about her, and I loath even having to go there, it would probably be that she would not have made it in Hollywood without the history of being a child actress, and that is because she is not conventionally beautiful. But she is still far from unattractive.

Actually, the worst thing you can say about her is that her appearance on The Good Wife marked a new low in writing and acting ability. Gave me the douche chills. I still say it is the best show on TV ever, but ocacsionally the writers just miss the mark, such as when they try to mock up a website or YouTube video created by Milennials. The under-30 crowd seems to be astonishingly difficult for them to relate to, and they should really avoid storielines that go there until they can hire a talented young writer that can lead them there without embarrasing them.

But, I'm really starting to see a pattern here of trashing good-looking women simply because they are not completely perfect. Its a low-brow tactic, even if you are Bradley Cooper. Post a pic of yourself and let's see how the members here feel about you. :grin:
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

Gadzooks! There are 7 billion chicks on this planet? They've got us outnumbered 2 to 1.

I have already. Twice. Tell me what you think -- as if i care. :lol:
