The Comic Critic Reviews: He's Just not that into you. Also, you get The Return of Stickman #1022

Normally I don’t memorize movie lines. I’m more of a visual guy, so I remember scenes much better. I knew this guy named Rick; he could remember movie lines like nobody’s business. We had great fun replaying The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, with me describing the scenes as he did the dialog. And we would have kept it up, but the folks we were with begged us to be merciful and stop. What does our little geek-out session have to do with He’s Just Not That Into You? Well, nothing really. I have these lines memorized because I was doing a lot of cross-country flying and received some sort of karmic retribution: He’s Just Not That Into You was the in-flight movie five times in a row. I’m a slow learner, but I now carry back-up movies to watch.

You're stark naked in the woods and the police have you cornered. Why? Why not go quietly? Why choose the hard way to end that particular chapter in your life? I guess you were going for as many poor decisions in a day as you could possibly manage.
