=POSSIBLE SPOILERS, and I am totally live-blogging my thoughts as I look shit up. =
These are movies that I'm thinking about, but can't find. HABO?
He was a super working machine that really loved his wife and daughter. He dies and goes to heaven where he's supposed to have his memories removed before he's reincarnated. He freaks and jumps into the machine to keep from having the memories of his wife removed.
He ends up meeting her, RDJ makes some crazy ass faces, and there's a pseudo-happy ending that I don't really remember, but that I think might have made me cry.
It was kind of a movie made before its time.
MOVIE: Chances Are
(1989) [Thank you forcryinoutloud
Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Cybill Shepherd, Ryan O'Neal, Mary Stewart Masterson, Christopher McDonald
Which gets me thinking of this other movie that was made before it's time, and was like a complete re-imaging of Robert A Heinlein's "I Will Fear No Evil."
Basically the MC is a real d-bag that uses women and tosses them aside. So he gets zapped and wakes up as a woman (MC's like "holy shizz, where's my biz?" and her expression
) there was something about the story that I really enjoyed. I mean, people bad mouth it, but that movie found a place in my head so when I did
read "I Will Fear No Evil," I completely got
They took different routes to reach the same goal. Two men that underwent a surprise genderbender that can't comedically be reversed. The MC's both experience a shift from being self-entitled white guys to being attractive women, and they don't do most of that stupid stuff that shows up in other movies. They realize that they're going to stay as women and they adapt to their lives and eventually find real love.
It makes me wonder if in the movie he was so 80s-antigay and self-hating, that the only way he could realize he was in love with his best friend was to become a woman. *Tacking that concept away. Possible future project.*
There were parts in the movie where I was laughing, and other parts where I felt like I was about to cry. I want to remember it as this really great movie, but maybe it was terrible and I'm going to get shocked like I was when I rewatched "Pop-Eye" as an adult.
I don't remember, but did MC give birth to himself? Is that what happened at the end, because that's really existestential.
Anyway, I can't remember the name of the movie, but I think it was really badly labled. It wasn't really a comedy, though there was some romance there. The MC had to fall in love with herself first before she could fall in love with anyone else.
BTW, just mentioning a tear-jerker of an absolutely beautiful love movie: What Dreams May Come
