No She Didn't

Last night I went out with the girls to see the opening of Sex and the City. I LOVE the show! We had cosmos and laughs before it all began. I even brought cosmos into the movies via my purse to really get in the mood.

The movie was going great. Tears, laughs, applause! All you could expect and hope for. Then it happened.

We all know Charlotte is part of our infertility community. She longed for a family. Well she finally adopted a beautiful little girl and is very content. As the movie begins to wrap up guess what she announces? YEP, she's pregnant! I was happy for her but then I felt it coming. The words an IF NEVER wants to hear EVER spoken aloud!

"I'm pregnant. I guess if you relax and adopt like they say, you will finally get pregnant on your own!" I am not sure if these are the exact words but they are what I remember.

Guess what I did? You won't believe it! I first gasped! You could feel the row of my girls do the same thing. Then I stood up, gave an ugly hand gesture and called her a 'not so nice' word very loudly. I am blaming it all on the cosmos! Then I sat myself back down and cried. I just couldn't believe they had to add that line into the movie.

I am glad the end of the movie made up for the big NO SHE DIDN'T! The movie is worth it if you are a fan BUT be warned the sentence is spoken and it will cause you to do not very nice things!

I could give a rats @$# about the movie, but the performance I regret not joining my friends for last night is yours. If I could go back in time, I would pay DOUBLE for your cosmo induced reaction. >: ) For the record, I lost respect for the whole SATC crew for throwing that line in. I thought if nothing else, at least the story line about Charlotte and her heartache was valid. BUT, they tossed it away with that statement. Sorry - I'm a little defensive after watching you and D these past years.

Wow, I'm glad that you didn't hold back! And that is such a myth, yes, a few people get pregnant after adopting, but I never ever had one at my adoption agency.

I'm glad you had the Cosmos!

Just the very IDEA of them putting a line in there like that makes me want to SCREAM.... Infuriating!!! And after making it seem like they were putting "one of us" in there. What kind of crap is that line anyway????? I am proud you did what you did, maybe it made someone in the theatre realzie what a load of lies that stupid line is. Horray for you!

Jen said...

That is ridiculous. Perhaps we should all write letters.

i also cringed and flipped a big old double fisted bird at the screen during that part. UGH!

Karen said...

I heard about the line, and I'm pretty pissed about it, but BOY am I sad I missed YOUR performance!

DD said...

Good for you, my dear. Such a shitty cliche to put in a movie, but it happens too often. doesn't it?

Dr. Grumbles said...

Thanks for the heads up! I won't be seeing it now!

Curly said...

Oh to be a fly on the wall! I wish I had seen your performance too. It is too bad that they had to say something so idiotic.

dmarie said...

I'm totally with you on this one! I too made a bit of a scene when I heard that line. It was really noticeable too b/c I was the only one in the theater that had a reaction to it. I just couldn't help it. Really pissed me off.

I've never been a fan of the show anyways, but that would ruin it for me if I was. I just cringe every time I hear the whole "Oh no, it's true, it happened to my cousin's friend's brother's ex-girlfriends daughter" story. Because it's very very rarely someone the person actually knows.... because it so very rarely happens!

Sorry they did that, but I agree that your reaction was perfect! ;)

Meghan said...

Love, love, LOVE your reaction, so wish I could have been there for that one!!

Dreamer4agift said...

Man, I wish I was there to see your reaction...good for you!

However, shame on them for putting that line in. How rude!

Jen said...

I just can't believe how ignorant people are in such an information age society where the REAL answers are so easily available! I'm ticked right along with you!
