I was super stoked about this movie. I mean super stoked, but my state of euphoria was short lived when I found out who was being cast as Rachel, Dex and Darcy. I mean, what were these casting agents smoking?!? Ginnifer Goodwin as Rachel; errr . . . Ginnifer who????? And Kate Hudson as Darcy? What?!? Darcy is a brunette! And the unknown actor who's playing Dex . . . um, did Scientology clone Tom Cruise? What a major let down. I think the only saving grace is John Krasinski who will be playing Ethan. And Ethan is supposed to be across the pond in England! What is he doing in the States?!? I hate it when screen writers completely fudge up a good book. Like Confessions of a Shopaholic ~ they were supposed to be Brits. That's what made the book so much fun. I mean, I sometimes wish I was a Brit just so I could use words like knickers, knackered, bollocks and shagged me senseless.
If I had to pick my Rachel and Dex, it would be Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi . . . I heart Mandy Moore and I lurrrrve Zach Levi. Just look at these two . . . they would have sizzled on screen.

And this is not the first time casting agents have got it all wrong. Um, and I hope I don't feel the wrath from the Twi-hards. *COUGH* Rob Pat as Edward?!? I'm sorry, and I know I'm gonna lose some readers for saying this . . . but watching Rob Pat was like watching Butt-Head from Beavis and Butt-Head. Does anyone else see the resemblance? Or is it just me?
Whooopsie! I veered off topic there for a bit. If you'd like a sweet intro to chick lit, I highly recommend Something Borrowed (the book). And if you'd like to check out the trailer for the upcoming Iknowit'sgonnabebotchedup movie, here it is. And you know what? I'm still gonna see it!
