Or do they usually chop of the thorns?
September 24, 2007

Well, it wasn’t until 20 years later that I managed to watch Dog Day Afternoon. This one is from 2006.

Once in a while, in between the BS that we throw at each other, I do talk about the future with my friends. While my envisages are nowhere near the sweet job, paradise home, sleek car, hot wife dream; a three bedroom apartment overlooking our Wira in the parking lot wouldn’t hurt. Still, we do have some rather idealistic thoughts when talking about our desired whereabouts 5, 10 years from now.

Judd, for instance, wishes to finally win his battle in having a Rainbow Day public holiday and legalizing gay parades in the country.

It’s rare however that we talk about the feeling of being able to actually grasp our craved wants. For the time being at least, we would think it as giving us nothing less than sheer satisfaction.

The Last Kiss proves differently.

Zach Braff plays Michael who is in his late 20s, works as an architect at a top firm, owns a Toyota hybrid, lives in a Madison WI townhouse, and above all, has a girlfriend who’s got all the animals in Bambi following her wherever she goes.

In short, he’s got all he’d ever wanted in life; which strangely, was not in his favor. He came to realize how pre-planned his life was. Throughout the years of living, he faced no surprises, no thrills and no hiccups to drive him away from his path; for him to then steer back in line.

The lack of drama leading him to where he is today caused him into having a premature mid-life crisis. He was in a state of depression to which himself couldn’t really comprehend.

Maybe all that he has now wasn't what he wanted at all. Maybe a rollercoaster ride of a life was what he wanted. And turning back time was not an option.

The emergence of a college sophomore, Kim, into his life however, bended all the possible rules that dictates the dos and don’ts of his current stature. Far from helping him, Kim kick-started the turbulence that was to rumble his household.

And that is just one of the many lives that trembled in the movie.

I see The Last Kiss as Love Actually on steroids. The movie is a blend of American Pie’s modern day living sugarcoating the brutal truth of Closer’s sickly circumstances. All in all, the movie highlights the thorns hidden underneath a bouquet of roses.

Man I'm up for some slaughtering from the friends with that last line.
