The Lyrics

An ode to chick flicks everywhere! Just kidding!
It's a little bit boring
My yawning can't hide
The only one here whose
Eyes are still dry
I wasted my money
Another chick flick
If they kiss again I'm
Gonna be sick

When I saw the poster
I was thinking "NO"
But it caused such commotions
That I figured I'd go
I'm losing my lunch
When the lead actor gets cute
This movie's too long
Should give it the boot

And I will tell everybody
Movie's too long
Cause every few seconds
They break out in song
Go out of my mind
Cause none of it rhymes
They muddle all the words
My punishment must be
Unusually cruel

I dozed off a few and
Now I am lost
Did she break up with Matthew
The landlord or her boss?
When my wife pinched my arm
Stopped snoring so loud
Said she's echoing rude
Complaints from the crowd

Said excuse me for snoring
But these things I do
You see I'm so bored cause
There's no guns or kung fu
Anyway there is kissing
In every scene
It's about time I go
Use the latrine

And I'll convince everybody
Movie's too long
Cause every few seconds
Their accents are wrong
It should be a crime
I should have declined
They're playing me the fool
My punishment must be
Unusually cruel

The writer's they got
Should fire the whole lot
This movie's so uncool
My punishment must be
Unusually cruel

Brings to mind "The Hours"...which was what minutes were like when trying to make it through that one...5's...and that from someone who doesn't automatically dislike "chick flick" type movies...

That is the same as the so called women's movies of the forties - dull.

I'm with Paul on the not automatically singling out "chick-flick" movies as crap but agree with this parody, and 'tis funny too.

Five... one for every hour "Titanic" seemed to be. And speaking of boat disasters (sort of)... Paul, to take your point to the next level: Does anyone know where the love of films goes when your date says, "Let's go see 'The Hours'?" The film's a long time and you've gotten some slime, when you go home you've needed two showers!

I love this! That's how I feel during boring movies (ie sci fi or just really long boring movies). Can't keep my attention for more than 10 minutes without dozing off.
