Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (June 20, 2008)

 
 

WAIT, WASN’T THERE ALREADY A MOVIE CALLED THREESOME?
The first poster and a new trailer for Woody Allen‘s upcoming film Vicky Cristina Barcelona have been released. Now, I don’t know if you’re picking up on the one-sheet’s subtle imagery, but I think what it’s trying to say is, uh, "threesome!"

Yes, threesome. As in these three people are going to have sex. As in, men (and assorted lesbians), ignore Javier Bardem and focus on the fact that Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz are going to have sex.

Heck, they even cropped Penelope to look kind of like Angelina Jolie. And we all know that Angie likes the ladies. Nudge nudge, wink wink.

The new trailer, unlike the earlier teaser trailer, actually features words. And, who’d a thunk it, a lot of those words are about sex. Who is having it, who is not having it, who is perpetrating violence because of it — you get the picture.

Oh, Woody, must you be so literal about living up to your name?

DUMB QUOTE OF THE WEEK ABOUT LESBIANS
"
Women have started to become lovers of each other as a result of not having enough men."
— Usher, in an interview with Vibe magazine

I WANT MY 5 MINUTES AND 30 SECONDS BACK
Out actor Saffron Burrows appears in the third season premiere of the Wainy Days, a web comedy series by David Wain. The short, called "Nan and Lucy," follows Wain’s fictitious self as he juggles a date with two women on one night, one of them played by Saffron.

OK, I get it. Ha ha, isn’t it funny that this schlubby guy has dates with two beautiful women on the same night. And yes, I know it’s meant to be ironic. But this is from a guy who is hailed by some as a comedy genius. He wrote and directed Wet Hot American Summer and The Ten. And his series Wainy Days took home a Webby this year.

Wait a sec — nope, I don’t get it. I think I’ve just lost all patience with comedies where the dorky dude lands the hottie girl. Or perhaps I’m just jealous he gets to be that close to Saffron.
