There’s a great scene in Dumb and Dumber where Jim Carrey has been waiting for Mary Samsonite at the bar for hours, and the black woman from The Young and the Restless (I know this because my mom watches it) comes and sits next to him. When we cut back hours later, she’s in the middle of a long, boring story about her ex-boyfriend. Being an idiot, Lloyd makes no attempt to hide his annoyance when asked “And do you know what he said next?” He responds, with chipper enthusiasm, “Nooo, and I don’t caaare!”
Watching this movie is like sitting next to that woman.
This is basically the opposite of my Netflix Quickies series. Instead of movies I picked randomly on Netflix Instant that I tried for a few minutes and hated, these are ones I fell in love with and watched all of. So definitely check them out.
By the way, these are all documentaries, because for some reason the only stuff I’ve given five stars on Netflix lately have been docs. Just been really lucky with them, I guess.
