Have I mentioned that I love Sandra Bullock? I've seen nearly all her movies, many of them several times.
The Blind Side was on last weekend and we got sucked into watching it. For the third time.
There's a scene where she walks onto the the football field during practice to help Michael understand what he's supposed to do. As she walks away, there is a brief second that shows a handful of the players, and a coach, leaning to one side to watch her a** as she walks. Granted, she's wearing a butt-hugging white skirt and does a fairly decent sashay. But... these are teenage boys. Children. I know she's Sandra Bullock, and totally hot, but in the story of the movie, she's a mom! Of a teenager!
I said to Hubs, "Ewww."
"They're teenage boys."
"She's a mom!"
"So. They're teenage boys," he said as if I was an idiot.
"Teenage girls wouldn't look at someone's dad that way."
"That's totally different."
Really? There's something more than mildly creepy about thinking of teenage boys looking at another teenager's mom that way.
Then I wondered what Demi Moore's daughter's friends thought when they looked at Ashton Kutcher. Maybe I hadn't completely won my argument here. Then again, he was closer to their age than hers, so it's a really bad analogy.
Maybe if a dad looked like George Clooney, the teenage girls would look at him that way. Then again, I think it's more likely the teenage girls' moms would be looking at him that way.
In case you haven't seen it - Click here and drag the button to 2:40. It's really all you need to see.
By the way, it really is a great movie.
