Stepmom, the movie
Ok, I actually love this movie. I’ve seen it a million times, long before I had any inkling that someday I would be dealing with a batshit crazy version of Susan Sarandon. But I digress. The point: Last night it was on TV and I noticed a part I never paid attention to before- When Ed Harris is telling Julia Roberts he has to go away for the wknd for work, and says he will get a babysitter because he has his kids. Then Julia Roberts gets all hurt and pouty because he didn’t want to leave the kids alone with her over the wknd, and is all “you don’t trust me to be alone with skids!”, and he says it’s just that they’re a handful, but she can take skids if she really wants...and for some reason, she does. And this was when the skids were being little a*sholes to her!
HA! I’m sorry, but Obviously whoever wrote this script was never actually a SM, because in real life the SM would have been like, yep, babysitter fo sho, then went on to live her best life shopping and drinking wine or Netflixing in her PJ’s, not at all sad that they didn’t have to spend the wknd babysitting his bratty kids when she even had to WORK part of the time! If your SO offers up a babysitter, you don’t look that gift horse in the mouth! FFS Julia Roberts!!
