The Sexy Woman Hero Thriller
Two couples were going to a movie together. Woman One narrowed the movie choices to eight. A documentary about a comedian was agreeable to three people but not to Man Two who preferred German war movies. A scifi movie was agreeable to three people but not to Woman One who didn’t like scifi. Man One told his partner that the other couple wanted to see the sexy woman hero thriller movie but she didn’t want to see it. Three people liked the Israel/Arab conflict movie but Man Two didn’t want to see war trauma movies with no political commentary. Woman Two suggested a romantic movie about searching for food, religion and love but Woman One was interested in food but not religion or love. Because of good reviews, a brutal English kidnap movie and an Australian mafia movie were mentioned but the German War movie man didn’t want violence. Eventually a movie about Armenians in the French Resistance was agreed on. But when they reached the theater, there were no adjacent seats at that movie and they had to make a second choice quickly because people in line behind them were impatient as the two men and two women tried to make up their minds. Woman One, who hadn’t liked the sexy woman hero thriller said she would see it and they bought four tickets.
Settled in the theater, Woman Two said to Woman One, “I didn’t want to see this.”
“I thought you did,” said Woman One.
“Not me, my partner did,” she said. “Let’s all go to different movies.”
She went to the romantic movie. Woman One went to the brutal kidnapping movie, which was too brutal so she switched to the Armenian French Resistance movie. The men didn’t want to move and stayed at the sexy woman hero thriller movie.
Woman Two, who chose the romantic movie, was happy. She saw the three countries she had wanted to see and avoided violence. In the Armenian French WWII movie, the characters were tortured and killed just before liberation so that Woman One saw a good movie but was left troubled and sad. The sexy woman hero thriller was mediocre and contained torture and violence. Man Two, who didn’t want violence, wasn’t pleased nor was Man One who remembered too late he had read a bad review.
