Just another Sunday night at the home of a mild mannered librarian....
The Boyfriend: So will you watch Superman Returns with me?
Some time later....
Me: If you're going to have Kevin Spacey (who totally rocks!) play Lex Luthor at least give him something to do! This movie is going to go somewhere any minute now, I can feel it!
The Boyfriend: I always hated the character of Kitty. Like Lex Luthor would put up with someone like her.
Me: That kid is creeping me out. Doesn't he look just like Christopher Reeve?
The Boyfriend: Not exactly like him, the forehead is similar though.
Me: I'm telling you, it's his long lost son!
Getting towards the end of movie
Me: Superman is so gay.
The Boyfriend: Why don't you like Superman?
Me: Like how stupid are these people? Clark Kent takes off his glasses, throws on some spandex and nobody recognizes him?
The Boyfriend: It's all about attitude. Nobody sees the similarities because Clark doesn't act like Superman. Clark is a bumbling idiot.
Me: And what's with the pining away for Lois? Sorry, but girlfriend isn't that hot. This is what annoys me about Spiderman too - he pines away for that annoying Mary Jane. Batman never pines - that's why Batman is cool.
The Boyfriend: What about Catwoman?
Me: OK, she wears black latex and carries a whip - I mean can you blame him? What with his vigilante tendencies and his inability to move on from his parents' deaths, Batman is the poster boy for antiheroes. Batman has issues. Besides, maybe his attraction to latex-lovin' Catwoman means he's a switch.
The Boyfriend: coughing Batman as a switch?! Wendy, you need help.
Me: You know I'm right, you just won't admit it.
