oh-no DVD of the week: ‘Bridal Fever’ or ‘God Send Me a Man’?

Oh, I can’t decide which one I hate more! Could it be God Send Me a Man, from Tyler Perry’s brother Emmbre Perry?

Stacy is a promiscuous 20-something woman who is quick to judge those around her and has nothing but bad luck in love. One day Stacy decides to re-evaluate her life in the hopes of finding Mr. Right. Realizing that her loose ways are setting a bad example to her younger siblings she decides to attend prayer service and forms a bound with God that is sure to bring happiness and balance in her life.

Because the Almighty’s got nothing else better to do than find Stacy a boyfriend!

Or could it be Bridal Fever?

An editor (Andrea Roth) looking for a husband is advised by her new client, a famous romance novelist (Delta Burke) whose personal life outshines fiction. But once her search nears fruition, Gwen (Roth) must decide if true love comes from a formula or from a more unexpected place.

Oh, we women are just hopeless when it comes to finding a man, which is particularly weird, because we spend our lives doing nothing else but trying to find a man. You’d think we’d be good at it by now!

    Well… while bridal fever looks obnoxious, god send me a man looks like the most insidious right wing propaganda bullshit… (she forms a bound with god? Do they mean bond?)

    I find the religious bullshit of “Find Me A Man” way more egregious than the general sexist bullshit of Bridal Fever.

    Has the word “promiscuous” ever been applied to a man? If jesus really cares that much about your naughty parts, why do all these religious idiots only worry about half of the population? (rhetorical)

    Because the Lord hath decreed that vaginas are the evil mouth of Satan…. (sorry, I love answering rhetorical questions)

    Yep – us women are all evil and promiscuous. The part of the reasoning I never understand is, if God made us (and I’m not saying I swallow that), then he gave us the naughty parts in the first place so it’s a little odd to go getting all upset if we decide to use them!

    God’s too busy punishing Haiti to find Stacy a man. Maybe Allah has the time. Oops, forgot about the Middle East.

    A more unexpected place? Hmmm. No, that’s not unexpected. I’m going out on a limb and say it’s probably the nice, only reasonably handsome guy in her building she’s been ignoring played by an actor too unknown for them to bother mentioning.

    I just assumed the “more unexpected place” was in the arms of Delta Burke’s famous romance writer. Look at the cover again…

    Duh! He’s testing us!

    Maybe Stacy could ask one of the smaller Gods like Ceno, Czol or Om? They are always on the lookout for a gig.
