trailer break: ‘My Life in Ruins’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Oh, really? The bearded troll of a bus driver turns out to speak English and is totally gorgeous cleaned up? Who could have predicted this?

How about a story in which the bearded troll of a non-English speaking bus driver turns out to be a serial killer who wipes out obnoxious American tourists tramping around the Old Country buying T-shirts and complaining about the food? And Nia Vardalos falls in love with him anyway and helps him commit his murders?

And I was ready to sarcastically thank the trailer for spoiling things when it revealed that he could speak English. But by the time I’d seen the trailer all the way through, I was ready to concede that the movie probably is going to be entirely predictable to anyone who’s seen any romantic comedy ever.

I understand the appeal of fantasy. I really do. But the same damn fantasy over and over and over again? Doesn’t anyone need any novelty at all?

My Life in Ruins opens in the U.S. on June 5; no U.K. release date has been announced.
