So I guess it's fair to say that you (NB: For the purpose of this post 'you' really refers to 'me' but it's embarrassing so I'm blaming you and not me:P) have probably watched too much FOTC when you're sitting in a cinema watching Despicable Me 2 with your children and you recognise a voice. Now, unlike Two Little Boys or Austenland or even the Hobbit, I have not been awaiting Despicable Me 2 with baited breath to swoon over my 'special guys' so I really knew nothing about the movie or the actors playing the voices.... other than Steve Carrell and Russell Brand.
So picture this, we are watching the movie and the character Lucy appears to kidnap Gru. "I know that voice, who is that?" I say out aloud. "HUH?" the general response from my kids. "Is that? No. Couldn't be. Is it though? That character sounds like..... like.... OMG LIAM, IT'S BRAHBRAH!!!!" "HUH" again, from both boys!!! Time to check with the expert.... my youngest son. "Hey Ryan, does that sound like Brahbrah?" "Yeah I think so". Still not convinced, I sneakily bend over in my seat until I am almost completely under the seat, turn on my phone and google it.
"HOLY MOLY IT IS BRAHBRAH!!!" Now here comes the BEST part......of course, as usual, all cutting remarks and feelings of complete and utter stupidity come courtesy of my youngest child, the seven year old keeper of all knowledge.... Ryan. Ryan turns to me and says "Well, duh, look at her, I think she has a slightly lazy eye". WTF?? Surely not. Really? No!!!!
So, for the rest of the film, I am staring at her eyes. Until, of course, we get another shock, but this time we all recognise the voice and in unison call out "MEL!!!!" as we turn and look at each other and laugh. After receiving stern looks from the 12 year old's in front of us, my 2 sons and I returned to watching the movie made just that little bit funnier by finding the lady in the blueberry dress was Brahbrah and the crazy girlfriend was our Mel.
So, what do you think? Does she have a slightly lazy eye???? Or was it just that we wanted it that to be true sooooo badly we just started seeing it???
