Movie Review: D.E.B.S

I don’t dare confess how many times I’ve seen this movie.  It is a movie for men who are approaching middle age but still think they are the hotness.  It is a movie for men who are approaching middle age but still have fantasies about barely-legal schoolgirls who have pillow fights in white drawers and pigtails.  Yet and still, I TIVO’ed it nearly two years ago and I watch it when I want something soothing and predictable. 

It presents me with the same shooting-fish-in-a-barrel life lessons that were there the last time I saw it:

  • A soundtrack that includes the Cure improves just about every screenplay. 
  • Giving attractive lesbian teenagers a happy ending trumps national security.  Like duh.  Did you have to ask? 
  • You are always the most true to yourself at the end of the story, when you have a big crisis and a moment of truth, but that moment is only possible with an audience.  Also: you will not lose the girl for taking so long to figure it out.  She will still smile when you say her name. 
  • Booty trumps friendship, but friends don’t mind. 
  • Anything is possible when you are 18.  The further you get from 18, the less true this is.
