movies you could ONLY watch on a plane, preferably without the $5 headphones

The only way these movies and I would ever be in the same place at the same time would be if I were strapped down.
Sadly, I have been - and exposed to:

White Girls - "Two African American FBI agents go undercover and impersonate wealthy white women." Youngest turned to me and said: You're kidding me, right?

Take The Lead - "The real story of a dance teacher who believed in the talent of a group of problem kids." Middle turned to me and said: The only cliche they haven't covered is the wealthy white girl who crashes the party - and then, there she was.

Stuck on You - "Conjoined twins from Martha's Vineyard move to Los Angeles so that one of them can pursue an acting career." Oh. The hilarity! Oh the four legged madras!

The Pink Panther - which needs no synopsis. Two prat falls into this one I purchased TWO bottles of airline chardonnay.

Failure to Launch
- "A thirtysomething slacker suspects his parents of setting him up with his dream girl so he'll finally vacate their home." How funny was it to see this with Oldest sitting next to me? NOT VERY.

How about the as yet unreleased Snakes on a Plane?

Stuck on You is on tv here tomorrow night. I just read the blurb half an hour ago and nearly fell off my chair.

I guess tomorrow night I'll be knitting in front of the cd player rather than the tv.

those are all movies I watched on planes - and thought "I am only watching this because I am a prisoner". They were only made bareable by the fact that they were 6 inches across, kinda washed out from the sun shining in, and an easy escape from the inhumanity of coach seat dimensions! However, I did kinda enjoy Take the Lead and recommended it to my mother.

I would also like to add Sahara to that list. Matthew may be HOT! but Sahara is not!

You forgot Dodgeball!! but maybe it's so bad that it didn't make onto the friendly skies list.

I was sooooooooooooo disappointed in The Pink Panther which had exactly ONE laugh in it (the "soundproof" scene) and...WTF is up with Steve Martin's eyes?

I confess I watched the last two. I'll hang my head now.

Being way too over-qualified in the knowing-about-twins department, Stuck on You is even more annoyingly stupid because I don't think it is possible to be a conjoined twin without also being identical twins. Which would have forced Matt Damon to act the part with, ooh, I don't know, one of Jane Goodall's communicative chimps?
Still, at least one of them would have been able to act.

really, totally perfect synopses that make me really really glad I miss most movies!
