The Last Word: Valentine’s Day, the movie

Happy Wednesday all!! Having Monday off (thank you Mr. President(s) ) made me lose track of time this week and so I’m here with The Last Word on a Wednesday! Anyway, since I had Monday off I got to go to the movies, which is quite a luxury. I even got to have a sushi day with a friend I haven’t seen in a while, so it was a great day off all in all.

The movie itself, aptly devoted to love and the day which claims the L word as it’s sponsor–Valentine’s Day— was quite entertaining. It’s not a serious film, and I don’t think anyone going into it believes it will be. It’s purely based on finding love, understanding love and seeing love in a variety of ways throughout your life. The characters are GREAT, the cast, stellar, but the best part of it was how realistic most parts were. It was a great thing to see these actors and actresses bring light to a subject on so many minds nowadays– falling and staying in love. In the same vein as “He’s Just Not that Into You,” this film showcases several couples who seem to find themselves throughout the film and find who they are “supposed” to be with, which generally is never who they think they will end up with.

Since so many movies are devoted to that concept–finding the one you’re supposed to be with– do you think, perhaps, that we (here in real life) have it all wrong? Are we searching for someone based on an ideal that doesn’t really fit with who we are destined to be with? I don’t know. Sometimes I think we are our own worst enemy; I think we search for things with a picture in our mind only to need something completely different. I think we think we know what’s best, but in reality the universe has some sort of grand plan; some sort of “script” that our life is following without us even knowing it. I can tell you one thing, I wouldn’t mind not knowing if my script led me to a hunk like Bradley Cooper, or Patrick Dempsey, or Topher Grace, or actually anyone in that movie!

What do you think? Do you think we search for love only to have it be the “wrong” type of love for us? Think about it while reading this new quote that I found:

According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their powers, Zeus split them into two parts; condemning them to spend the rest of their lives in search of their other halves.

Is that quote just nice words to sooth a broken heart? Or are they more; are they the truth?
