We saw a movie today.
In fact, we saw the same movie yesterday and the day before. We’ve now watched the delightful film “The Wedding Date” three times in our continuing memory-making trip to the beach.
The sweet, funny little film stars Debra Messing as Kat who hires the hunky Dermot Mulroney (playing Nick) to escort her to her sister’s wedding. Her goal is to make her ex-fiance jealous and want her back. Inevitably, Kat and Nick fall in love, satisfying our fantasies and our childhood convictions that we would be “happy ever happy” come rain or shine!
One of our favorite scenes in the movie is where Nick makes a toast to the adoring women around him with the words “To the men who loved you, the fools who left you, and the lucky Bastards who will have you.” It brought cheers from our small peanut gallery and we all fell instantly in love with Dermot Mulroney.
So that has become our mantra – as we toast our coffee, wine, slurpees, whatever. Here’s to all the men we’ve loved. Including Dermot Mulroney, we figure there are about 28 of you out there. You know who you are.
Maybe today we will finally go to the beach….
