Those of us in relationships know all about the expansive battlefield upon which the opinions of men and women often go to war. Thank god that merciful cease-fire called “compromise” exists to keep us all sane.

However, when it comes to choosing what movie a couple should see  on a given night, sometimes there just isn’t enough diplomacy in the world to head off a boyfriend vs. girlfriend skirmish.

This is especially true when the movies in question are totally in opposition  in terms of their appeal to the respective sexes. Sure, every guy wants to see some good alien vs. badass no-holds-barred action (with a healthy splash of gore), but it’s usually the ladies who are intrigued by a synopsis like: “While trying to get pregnant, a happily married woman realizes her life needs to go in a different direction, and after a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey.”

Well, a couple of up-and-coming young actors have launched an online series of skits that deal with the often-tricky conflicts that come with relationships. The videos are insightful satire of all-too-real relationship situations, with a pinch of straight-faced dry humor added just for flavor.

The latest entry features “The Boyfriend” and “The Girlfriend” trying to decide on which movie to go see: the alien  action slaughterfest Predators, or the chick-flick/self-empowerment story, Eat, Pray, Love. The video comes our way courtesy of actor David Rynn and – get this – our very own ex-Screen Ranter, Scott Miller!

*Sniffle* We love it when our babies finally spread their wings and fly!

So okay, your knee-jerk reaction might be to say that the video would’ve been more topical had the boyfriend and girlfriend been arguing about Eat, Pray, Love vs. The Expendables – but you’d be dead wrong, because according to Fandango Polls, a sizeable portion of The Expendables‘ opening weekend audience were women! Guess the girls wanted to see those badass tough boys in action just as much as we dudes did? Does that make any other guy suddenly feel uncomfortable about their manhood?

But I digress. The real truth that this video exposes is that men can be led anywhere by the promise of free food – even into the dark recesses of a Julia Roberts movie. Sad but true.

Let us know if you enjoyed the video. If you want to check out more satire skits about the relationship experience, head over to scottanddave.net.

  1. I’d see it for free food. A movie is a movie even if it does look terribly estrogen fueled.

  2. How many relationships will, “Eat, Prey, Love,” destroy. Millions!

    Predators is just a harmless shoot um up. :-)

    • Gotta agree with 790 on this one. Eat Prey Love is just another relationship destroyer. I predict 70% of women who see Eat Prey Love will dump their boyfriends or husbands and reevaluate their lives. 70% of those women will beg for their significant other back after realizing how stupid they were for following the advice of an idiotic preachy hollywood film that really doesn’t understand the real world or people.

      Warning: These statistics are to not be taken serious they are obviously number that I pulled out of my back side. Though a few relationships will be entirely destroyed because of this dumb hollywood film.

      • hahah hey we all 3 agree on something!!! and daniel..ur statistics mught be more true than you think LOL

      • Haha. Eat, Prey, Love sounds like a Predator movie

  3. True dat – Twizzlers are the bomb. But something about Julia Roberts being in it sets me on edge. Funny vid!

  4. No free food promise would convince me to see that crap.

    • no amount of threatened sex on hold from my GF would make me see that crap

  5. I didn’t know Scott left.

  6. Lol the other guy looks a hell of a lot like George Clooney.

  7. Heck…let’s just chuck Julie and the Predator into the octagon (armed only with twizzlers…) and rake in the dough! Who wants to go for pay-per view rights with me?

  8. I just saw Eat Pray Love with my gf, and it was pretty dumb. First of all, Julia Roberts’ character is a freakin’ crybaby, she has money, she lives in a nice home, she has a husband that loves her, and she’s praying about how she’s in such a horrible situation while crying her eyes out and blah blah blah… Yah, why don’t she just trade her life with someone living in poverty with an abusive husband or boyfriend…

    So she leaves her husband and breaks his heart. Then she goes off and has a love affair with another guy, another guy that loves her, and again, she’s all crying about how unhappy she is, boo freakin’ hoo. Then she leaves him and breaks his heart too.

    Then there’s like what seems to be 3 hours worth of just a bunch of her going around to places eating stuff, doing random stuff, most of which pretty uninteresting. Then…

    ***SPOILER ALERT***

    At the end she meets another guy, and blah blah blah and long story short it ends with her going with him… Something tells me that they stay together for a little while before she starts crying again about how unhappy her life is before leaving him and breaking his heart too…

    ***END SPOILER***

    I don’t really see why I should really care about her happiness because she just seems like a selfish crybaby to me… Not to mention, the 2 hours of the movie seemed to feel like 3 and a half hours… *YAWN*

  9. Nice pick

  10. Wow Eat Prey Love sounds like a Julia Roberts biography.

    Yikes!

    • ZING!

  11. EAT…
    PREY…
    LOVE…

    Then Cry as you kiss $20 bucks good bye
